Mobile Farmer’s Market and CSA Farm Share Location Coming to the Seaport
The Seaport will be able to enjoy farm-fresh produce, meat, and cheese, thanks to the Trustees.
Are you thoroughly confused by what’s actually in season at the grocery store? Do you spend far too long looking for the freshest produce, but ultimately not even know what you’re looking for? Take the guess work out of the grocery shopping process and check out the Trustees and WS Development’s newest Mobile Farmers Market and CSA Farm Share pick-up location in the Seaport, which will be offering in-season, sustainably-raised, and fresh produce.
Located on the corner of Seaport Boulevard and Fan Pier Boulevard (across from Warby Parker and Shake Shack), the pop-up market will be open on Thursdays from 2:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m. starting June 28 and run until November 8. The market will provide the opportunity to shop fresh produce, meat, milk, eggs, cheese, and fruit from Powisset Farm in Dover—just 15 miles from downtown Boston.
“We are excited to bring farm fresh food and the Mobile Farmers Market to the Seaport district in South Boston thanks to our partners at WS Development,” Cathy Wirth, Trustees Agriculture Program Director, said in a press release. “Both of our organizations have seen a growing interest in convenient access to healthy, local, and sustainably-produced food in this vibrant area of Boston where so many people now live and work.”
Even more, you won’t be left with things in your CSA you’re not jazzed about, because the CSA follows a pick-your-own model. So you’ll have the opportunity to customize a tote bag with all the things you actually want and none of the things you don’t. The Mobile Farmers Market, which was debuted last year and was the first mobile market in Boston to carry all-local food, will also provide shoppers the opportunity to pick up additional produce.
Choose between paying $500 for the season or $25 per week for the Seaport CSA location. In addition, the Trustees offer corporate boxed share delivery options with more stops being accepted for companies and corporations who want to offer their employees the convenience of picking up fresh food at work.
Eating wicked fresh has never been this easy, at least in the Seaport, where grocery options tend to be a little sparse.
$25-$500, June 28-November 8, 2:30 p.m.- 6:30 p.m., 77 Seaport Blvd., Boston, thetrustees.org.
Update, Wednesday, June 27, 10:30 a.m.: This post was updated to reflect a location change for the Seaport CSA.
