Newburyport Farmers Fall Market

The Tannery Marketplace
75 Water St, Newburyport, MA

Tannery Marketplace continues its tradition of bringing farmers and community together all winter long under its protective tent. Every other Sunday, during the winter months, local growers, artisans and green-centric entrepreneurs continue to share their wares at Newburyport’s only Farmers’ Market. A wide variety of locally farmed fruits and vegetables, savory and sweet treats and hand-crafted treasures make a visit to this acclaimed farmers market a new experience with every visit. Live acoustic music creates a festive environment to enjoy craftsmanship and camaraderie. Unfortunately the Board of Health prohibits our four legged friends from joining in the fun. Please keep your dogs at home when you visit during the winter months. Read more.
