The Matchstick Market is setting out to support the local food producers in the community and increase the accessibility of fresh, local produce and handmade products in the central Massachusetts community. A high-quality selection of local farms, artisans and makers who prioritize sustainability, environmentalism, and ethics as a part of their business model will make up the weekly vendors. Fresh produce, fresh-cut flowers, herbs, locally-made foods and products, ready-to-eat foods, art, live music, community groups, family-friendly activities, workshops, and more are lined up throughout the year. In an effort to remain accessible for all, they’ll be partnering with farms that accept SNAP, WIC, HIP, Senior Coupons, and other government subsidy programs.
“Our hope is to cultivate an empowering space that is family-friendly, supportive of our local economy, and gives artists and entrepreneurs a platform to positively contribute to our community,” said Nicole Melone, Matchstick Market manager.
