It’s summertime again in New Bedford, which means great weather, visits to local beaches and of course farmers’ markets. Farmers’ markets provide us with fresh, locally-grown and often organic, produce at a great price. As a supporter of small business and someone that ensures vegetables make up the majority of every meal, I visit farmers’ markets every chance I get. From early July through late October, New Bedford hosts three farmers’ markets on three different days of the week. Here is a list of the three New Bedford farmers’ market locations with times and details on each.
