If going to a farmers market in New England, why not visit one that looks like you are in New England?

The Norwood Farmers Market on the Common in Norwood, Massachusetts not only offers a wonderful variety of vendors, but also one of the most beautiful town common in Massachusetts. This town green, born in 1912, looks every bit the role of a quintessential New England town common. With park-like grounds, the town common is surrounded by the historic St. Catherine’s Church, United Church of Norwood and Norwood Town Hall buildings, as well as the renovated old-time Norwood Theater with its classic marquee. With benches, memorial sites, paved walkways and a bandstand on the town common in a central location, this is about as New England as it gets.

It's no surprise that the Norwood Farmers Market resides at the town common on Tuesday afternoons from 12 noon to 5:30 p.m. Like other towns in New England, the town green is where the community meets for events, ceremonies and neighborly gatherings.

Sponsored by Blue Hills Bank, the Norwood Farmers Market, at this time, features a nice mix including local farms selling farm fresh produce like Oakdale Farms, Freitas Farm, and Wards Berry Farm, as well as Jordan Brothers Seafood, Vermarje International (teas and pastries), and Valicenti Pasta Farm. Log onto for a full list of vendors.

Popular amongst Norwood, Walpole, Canton, Dedham and Westwood residents, the Norwood Farmers Market is also ideal for farmers market fans outside those towns in the Boston (15 miles away going southwest on Route 1A) and Providence areas, as well as travelers. What's more, there's plenty to do in downtown Norwood after visiting the Farmers Market, as the old-fashioned downtown district features several diverse dining options, an old-fashioned bowling alley (Norwood Sports Center), a classic diner (Town Square Diner), tremendous coffeehouse (Perks) and many mom and pop shops selling clothing, antiques, furniture, hardware items, and gifts. What a nice way to spend a Tuesday afternoon!

The Norwood Farmers Market is located at the Town Common at the cross of Washington St. and Nahatan St.
