We celebrate in style at Central Farm Markets with great music, Kids Club  activities and terrific food. Whether you're off to the beach, a picnic or a backyard  BBQ, you will find everything you need to make your July 4th celebration a  crowd pleasing one. There are lots of great specials at the market this  weekend:




Here are a few tips for shopping at the markets in the warm weather:
  1. Come early - it's less crowded and the produce is still cool.
  2. Bring an insulated bag to keep cold or frozen items safe.
  3. If you are headed to the beach after shopping, bring a cooler in the car with some ice packs. Put the ice packs on the bottom and a layer of newspaper on top of the packs. Everything will stay nice and cool, but will not get wet.
  4. Drink plenty of water. Many of our vendors sell water so please hydrate! You will find doggie bowls throughout the market to keep your pooches hydrated too.
  5. Ask the farmers and vendors for recipe ideas. In addition to raising and making food to go, many are exceptional cooks and can guide you in creating some really "cool" dishes.
  6. Leave your car windows cracked a bit on a really hot day so the produce doesn't "cook" when you load it to take it home.
Happy Fourth to all of our customers, vendors and staff!

Sincerely,

Mitch, Debbie, Jessica, Lynn K, Andrew, Mary, Jill and PR
