The market is held from 8am-1pm in the municipal lot adjacent to the First United Methodist Church on Park St. There is plenty of parking both on the street and in the lot behind the Purple Rose Theater.
I have started touring all of the veggie, fruit and meat farms so that I can get to know our vendors and their offerings better. It has been a beautiful connectivity so far and I am pleased to share their stories with you as well! You can find their stories here: https://chelseafarmersmkt.org/2018/06/merkel-gardens-2/
