massDOT Offers Farmers Free Retail Space
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation’s Farmers' Market Program begins in May.
Massachusetts farmers are invited to use the free space at all 18 service plaza’s on Massachusetts highways. massDOT added 7 new service plaza locations in addition to the 11 Mass Pike service plazas.
The Farmers' Market Program offers Massachusetts’ farmers a unique opportunity to sell and market their wonderful locally grown products. Farmers can sell their goods as long as they do not compete with the service area stores and restaurants. For locations, see the invitation from massDOT.
If you are interested in participating in this year’s program or have any questions, please contact David Fenton.
