The Revere Beach Farmers’ Market has been moved back to its original location on the Revere Beach Boulevard. Beautiful white canopies line the Revere Beach Bandstand every Thursday, offering locally grown produce, fish, baked goods and more. The Revere Beach Partnership had moved the market to the new Markey Memorial Pedestrian Bridge, on the upper level of Wonderland Station.
“It’s been very, very busy since they moved it back,” said Diane Rose, whose stall offers specialty cheeses and grass-fed beef and veal. “I think the sales were low, that’s why they moved it back. The vendors didn’t like it either. This way, we’re back to attracting more foot traffic, right in front of the beach.”
“I volunteer with the partnership every Thursday,” said Revere resident Pamela M. Anderson. She pointed to the two produce stalls, “Last week we had both of them nearly sell out. This week it’ll be the same probably. The market is more accessible here than it was there. There’s a WIC program, that if you give them $10.00, they give you 20 farmers’ market dollars.”
The Revere Beach Farmer’s Market will take place every Thursday through October 17.
