Farmers markets at Daniels Farmstead now open

BLACKSTONE – Farmers markets at Daniels Farmstead, 286 Mendon St., have begun and will continue every Sunday through Oct. 7, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The 8th season of organic vegetables are growing in the Daniels garden. The first farmers market will feature other vendors offering locally grown fruits and vegetables, grass-fed meats, goat milk soaps, gourmet foods, fancy fudge, and more.

The grill will be open from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., featuring certified angus beef and veggie burgers, franks, and Italian sausage with peppers and onions. A home-baked goods table, including Daniels own raw honey, will also be available.

Visitors can enjoy musical entertainment while eating at picnic tables, or they can learn more about the property with a grounds and house tour conducted by a Daniels docent. Musical entertainment will be provided by a grant from the Blackstone and Mendon Cultural Councils, supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

Daniels Farmstead will accept Massachusetts farmers’ market coupons.

Upcoming events this summer include a Go Green Electronics Recycling event on Sunday, July 15.
