Newburyport Farmers’ Market

Given its northerly location, Newburyport has an edge over other area markets: It’s able to draw in vendors from southern New Hampshire. But it’s the sheer magnitude of the selection—which ranges from standard-issue fruits and veggies to raw honey, locally caught fish and shellfish, and sustainably raised goat meat, not to mention prepared goodies like sweet and savory tarts from Puff—that draws crowds.

Sundays May through November, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Tannery Newburyport thenewburyportfarmersmarket.org
