It’s National Farmers Market Week! REC’s Farmers Market behind the YMCA …

… Main South branch, is the perfect way to support local farmers, eat well, have fun and meet some of Worcester’s finest young people!

Happening now until 2 p.m. TODAY, SATURDAY, AUGUST 9.

Meet lots of “kids” in their 20s who are cool, progressive,  knowledgeable, the kind of kids who typically call places like Amherst or Northampton home. Just fantastic!  They help out at REC. They help at the HUGE REC COMMUNITY GARDEN on Oread Street. They staff the REC mobile farmers market van and travel all over Worcester bringing great, healthy foods to places like the Worcester Senior Center on Vernon Hill. They are savvy yet idealistic… Hope they live in Worcester FOREVER.

The REC farmers market is held on the big grassy lawn of the park behind the Y, Fuller Family Park. It feels like a beautiful fair!!!!

Stop by for veggies, fruit, treats – PLUS enjoy FREE fun activities for the kids and buy crafts,  listen to live music – free. A great way to spend the beginning of your Saturday!

REC has been brightening urban Worcester for almost two decades! They’ve been at the vanguard of the community-garden movement. SHOW THEM THE LOVE…

Visit the REC farmers market NOW!
