WESTFORD — The town common may feel a little different this summer as Westford’s Farmers Market has found a new home. 

The market, a town common staple since 2006, originally shut its doors in 2018 amid declining participation. After reviving the market and managing the site for the last three years, the Roudenbush Community Center believes the move is necessary.  

“We did find some logistical challenges some vendors were seeing such as parking,” said Roudenbush’s Marketing Coordinator Ann Czado to WestfordCAT. “It also allows us to get the market rain or shine.”

She continued, “Right now, we’re just trying to get it off the ground and make sure it is a smooth transition.”

The transition to the center at 65 Main St. also marks the start of a shorter season, with the farmers market concluding on Aug. 30 instead of Oct. 7. Still, the market is still seeking additional vendors despite the shortened season.

“We found a steep drop off when school starts,” said Czado. “But we are always looking for new vendors. We are open and willing to work with you.”

The market begins on Tuesday, June 21 from 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. The market will run every Tuesday until it concludes on Aug. 30.
