Berklee artists will perform a wide range of musical styles throughout the summer at the Harvard Farmers’ Market. Performances happen on Tuesdays from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. in front of the Harvard Science Center Plaza.
Founded in 2005, the market builds community by providing opportunities to buy directly from local farmers, benefits the environment as small-scale farms conserve land, and supports local families by allowing farmers to sell their produce for full price. Hosted on the plaza each year, the Harvard Farmers' Market is a vital part of Harvard University Dining Services' Food Literacy Project.
