Winter Farmers Market opened Saturday, runs through March 18

The Dorchester Winter Farmers Market (DWFM), temporarily operating inside and outside Shawmut Station due to ongoing renovation at the Great Hall in Codman Square, opened for the season last Saturday and will operate every Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. through March 18.

Founded in 2013, it is the only winter market in Dorchester and a great place to buy farm fresh produce, baked goods, meat, specialty foods from local producers, art, and craft items.

Since 2015, the DWFM has been organized by the Codman Square Health Center, Codman Square Neighborhood Council, and the BOLD Teens.  The Dorchester Food Coop, which helped to establish the DWFM in 2013, still serves as a vendor. 

This year the charitable group City Kids, created by City Realty, has stepped up to assist with a $7,500 donation.
