Rep. Driscoll helps revive Milton Farmer's Market, set to return on June 17
MILTON, MAY 13, 2021
Unable to operate due to the pandemic, the Milton Farmers' Market was missed on Thursday afternoons throughout the warmer months of 2020. That changes this year as the Milton Farmers' Market is set to make its return on Thursdays from 1 to 6 p.m. beginning June 17.
As more residents become fully vaccinated and coronavirus cases trend downward, Representative Bill Driscoll Jr. joined the town's effort to get the Milton Farmers' Market back on its feet. The Farmers' Market is trying to raise $5,000 to both staff and run the program. Rep. Driscoll has committed to contributing a one-time $2,000 matching donation and Select Board Chair Melinda Collins as well as additional members of Milton's state legislative delegation have also pledged to contribute, generating $3,000 in pledges so far.
Donations to the Milton Farmers' Market are still being accepted at this time. The donations are tax deductible and can made through Massachusetts Farmers Markets, a 501(c)(3). If you are interested in making a donation, you may make a check out to Mass Farmers Markets at 240 Beaver St in Waltham. Be sure to include "Milton Farmers' Market" in the memo section on the check.
