One day closer to spring...

It has been well below freezing for the past few days, but the seed, plant and garden catalogs have started to arrive, so that means spring is on the way.  In Chelmsford and the the surrounding towns, Parlee's Strawberries are never far from our thoughts.  We are so happy that Parlee's will be selling strawberries, among other things, at the Chelmsford Farmers Market.  Click on the photo and you will go to their site.  Remember, you can't eat too much strawberry shortcake!

A New Market is Coming to Town!

The Chelmsford Farmers' Market is in its final planning stages and the Market Committee is champing at the bit to start sending out the applications to our local farmers.  Peggy and Susan presented the draft rules and regulations to the Board of Selectmen last week, answered their questions and received some helpful comments.  We have had a lot of positive feedback and we are pleased the Town Manager and BOS are supportive.

Our goal is to give the residents of Chelmsford a place to purchase local produce and support local farmers.  Stay tuned to learn more about becoming a locavore!
