Town Crier

TEWKSBURY — This summer, the Tewksbury Community Market, formerly known as the Tewks­bury Farmers Market, will take place at the Tewks­bury Public Library for the second year. In years past, it has been held at Living­ston Street Park and on the Town Common.

The market will be held every Tuesday between the weeks of June 11 through Sept. 24, excluding the weeks of 4th of July and Labor Day. It is set to be­gin at 4 p.m. and will end at 7 p.m.

Vendors from throughout the region, selling a variety of different products, are welcomed at the market. Oftentimes, there are different vendors each week, allowing one to discover a new product each time they attend.

Types of products that have been at the market in the past include a low-cal­orie coffee service, handmade jewelry and accessories, baked goods, fresh produce, and all-natural soaps and lotions among other products.

The Board of Health re­quires vendors to obtain a permit if they are selling any of the following: cut fruit and produce, and processed foods. Proces­sed foods are defined, but not limited to, by the Board of Health as pies, cakes, breads, jams, candy, meats, and baked goods.

Products prohibited by the Board of Health in­clude custard products, raw egg products, unpasteurized milk, soft chee­ses, home canned foods (unless processed in a li­censed facility), and food demonstrations. Products not requiring a permit are whole, uncut produce, un­processed honey, farm-fresh eggs, and maple sy­rup.

This information, as well as the forms by which to obtain a permit can be found in the Tewksbury Farmers Market Applica­tion Packet 2019, found on the town’s website.
