Neponset ‘Farmacy’ returns this Friday

The ‘Farmacy’ at Harbor Health will return to the 10 Minot St. parking lot in Dorchester this Friday (Nov. 18) from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The farmer’s market and health fair is a joint effort of Dick’s Market Gardens, a family-owned farm in central Massachusetts, and Harbor Health to bring fresh produce to the Neponset neighborhood.

The farm will have locally grown fruits and vegetables including apples, potatoes, squash, and more. For $30, customers will get a reusable Dick’s Market Gardens shopping bag to fill up with any fresh fruits and vegetables. 

Cash, credit, SNAP, and HIP are accepted. SNAP recipients are encouraged to use HIP dollars at the Farmacy to get vegetables and fruits for the Thanksgiving holiday. Harbor Health will also provide free blood pressure screenings and health giveaways during the market.

The Dorchester South/South Boston WIC program and The Dorchester Reporter are sponsors of The Farmacy. For parking information and event updates, visit HHSI.US/Farmacy.
