Now in its 44th season, the Hingham Farmers Market is drawing many happy shoppers to its Station Street location following a very different -- although successful -- season last year.
The HFM opened on schedule May 1, 2021, under 2020 Covid-19 restrictions, but in June -- with the lifting of earlier restrictions by Gov. Charlie Baker -- the market has been able to go back to normal operations.
"We're back happily [this year] in a very robust environment," HFM President Mark Cullings said recently.
The market -- the third-oldest in the state -- operates from the Station Street parking lot Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., May through November.
HFM features nearly 34 vendor booths laden with fresh produce, delicious baked goods, beautiful cut flowers, meat, poultry, seafood, and many other popular offerings.
While the move from the Bathing Beach parking lot back to Station Street -- where the market initially started out many years ago -- due to the pandemic was envisioned as temporary, HFM organizers have found the experience there to be very positive. "While not offering as much space, its ease of access and parking along with its proximity to Downtown Hingham are often mentioned by market customers [and others]," Cullings said.
