About the Belmont Farmers’ Market

Part of the community

The Market is more than just a place for fresh, healthy, local food. It’s an important part of the Belmont community. Kids’ activities, events, community information, and new & old friends all make it a great community event.

“I like the town-square nature of it, knowing I will run into people I know, the happy atmosphere.”
— A BFM shopper

Our mission

To provide members of the community a place to purchase fresh, local produce and goods directly from farmers and producers in a congenial atmosphere; to provide farmers and producers a direct market for their produce and goods; to support local agriculture and producers; to educate our community about eating healthfully; to educate residents about maintaining a healthy environment and the importance of sustainable agriculture; and to provide a social experience that helps build community and enhances the quality of life in Belmont.
