Nutrition Information

  • The Acton-Boxborough Farmer's Market is a producer-only, seasonal, farmers market on Pearl Street in West Acton. Open on Sundays from 10am to 1pm, their focus is making fresh, whole, organically or sustainably grown foods available to our communities including vegetables and fruits, flowers, cheeses, bagels, meats, pastas, artisanal breads, wines, baked treats, maple syrup, fungi, and specialty products such as spreads, sauces, and condiments.

  • Massachusetts’ farmers are offering the public a new way to invest in local agriculture, while enjoying delicious, fresh food throughout the season. Community Supported Agriculture (CSAs) are a way for the food buying public to create a relationship with a farm and to receive a weekly basket of produce.

    Farms offering CSA shares of vegetables, fruits, and various other agricultural products can be found across the state.
