Just like the summer farm markets, it’s a place you can buy foods grown and made in Massachusetts and the surrounding states.
What do they have?
Every week 2 dozen vendors sell all sorts groceries and treats: vegetables, fruit, meat, fish, cheese, bread, eggs, pasta and sauces, jam, cookies, candy, even wine.
Where is it?
The market takes place inside the gymnasium at the Cambridge Community Center, 5 Callender Street, 02139.
It’s near the intersection of Western Ave. and Putnam Ave. You’ll see street signs posted nearby on market days.
Who is the market for? Do I need a membership to shop there?
Anyone can shop - no membership needed! Everyone is welcome to come and have a look around. It’s a gathering place as well as a market.
Is it expensive?
There are so many foods & crafts on offer. Some are expensive, and some are not. No matter your budget, you can find ingredients for a hearty meal, choose ready-made coffee, breakfast or lunch, or just enjoy the live music.
If you have SNAP benefits, the market increases your buying power. We match your first $15 of SNAP credit with $15 more. So $15 in SNAP credit becomes $30 in market cash every week. Just visit the manager’s table when you arrive.
Why not just go to a supermarket?
The winter market is more fun. Every week there are free samples, live music and great activities for kids and adults.
Your food choices matter to your health and the local economy. By shopping at the winter market, you support both.
