The Wayland Summer Farmers' Market, founded in 2005, runs for 16 weeks from June to October and features vendors from around New England. In 2010 we started the indoor Wayland Winter Farmers' Market which lasts for 10 weeks from January to March.
Our Summer and Winter Markets
The Wayland Summer Farmers' Market was founded in 2005. The late Lewis Russell, owner of Russell's Garden Center in Wayland, wanted to make sure that those living nearby would continue to have a place to purchase from local farms and food producers once Lee's Farm Market closed. Our 16 week season begins the last Wednesday in June and ends on the first Wednesday in October.
In 2010 we started the indoor Wayland Winter Farmers' Market in the lush greenhouses at Russell's. What started as a small group of vendors in the first year, has now turned into a group of 140 participants over a ten week period. Through the years we added special event days including New England Cheese Day, Massachusetts Farm Wineries Day and two Farm Fiber Days, which were moved to Sundays beginning in 2019. Unfortunately, our 2021 winter market will not include these special events. The Winter Market begins on the second Saturday in January and runs for 10 weeks.
