Belmont Farmers’ Market opening day features Food Assistance Information Fair


Belmont, MA – Belmont Farmers' Market (BFM) will have a Food Assistance Information Fair as part of their Opening Day celebration on June 2, 2022. Representatives from local and statewide agencies will provide information about food benefit programs (SNAP, FMNP, HIP) and talk to people facing food insecurity about ways to boost their food budgets.


In 2021, food assistance at BFM added over $37,000 to the budgets of shoppers who need financial assistance to buy food for their families. Spending those additional funds at the Market also supported local farms and businesses.


Also, the Belmont Food Pantry will hold a food drive and the Belmont Farmers’ Market will accept financial donations to support their programs, including SNAP and FMNP coupon matching.


Opening Day schedule


The ribbon-cutting ceremony starts at 1:45 pm. The Market and the Food Assistance In-formation Fair run from 2:00 until 6:30. BFM operates in the Belmont Center parking lot behind Leonard St.


We will have a local band playing as well as our amazing vendors. Come on by for an afternoon of music, fun, community and great local food!
