CAFM in Northshore Magazine!

The Cape Ann Farmers Market is more than just a market! Read our feature in Northshore Magazine to learn all about CAFM and what we do beyond the weekly market!

Bogin sums up the value of farmers’ markets by saying: “The food tastes better, it’s better for the economy, it’s better for the community, and it allows people to directly interact with those who are growing and making their food, which makes for a great learning experience.”

Check out the article to find out how - as Northshore Magazine puts it -  "to shop at a farmers’ market is to contribute to the greater good."
