TEWKSBURY — On Tuesday June 11, the first Tewksbury Community Market of the season was held outside of the Tewksbury Public Library. Despite a rainy start to the day, the sun was shining by the time the market began, allowing people of all ages to see all it had to offer for the first time this season.

This is the second year the market will be held outside of the library; previously, the market has been held at Livingston Street Park and the Tewksbury Town Common.

The Community Market gives attendees the opportunity to shop directly from local businesses for a variety of products. Vendors sell a variety of products, such as fresh produce, baked goods, handmade accessories, and soaps and other bath products among others.

At this week’s opening market, various vendors were in attendance. They included: Jones Farm Chelms­ford, Sweet Lydia’s, Tewksbury Hon­ey, the Tewksbury Public Library Com­mu­nity Garden, KC Styles Ac­ces­sories, Scents Delivered, and Usborne Books.

Additionally, the Shawsheen Tech’s food truck, “Rams on the Road,” was also there, selling pizza, burgers, hot dogs, french fries, and more. As the summer progresses, different vendors will be at the market as well.

The market will be held every Tuesday between now through the week of Sept. 24, excluding the weeks of the 4th of July and Labor Day. It is set to begin at 4 p.m. and will end at 7 p.m. each Tuesday.
