The Hingham Farmers Market is the third oldest farmers’ market in Massachusetts. Since 1977, the market has been offering local products to market-goers. Today, the HFM hosts between 35 to 40 vendors weekly – beginning in early May and continuing to the weekend before Thanksgiving.
In addition to a wide assortment of locally grown produce, meat and poultry, fresh seafood from the region is also prominently represented. The HFM hosts gardeners – offering plants and cut flowers – several bakers, vendors selling local honey, jams and jellies, sauces and many other food products. A select group of artisans rounds out the weekly market scene.
For many years, the HFM’s original location was at the Station Street parking lot. When the Greenbush commuter rail line restoration project started in 2003, the market relocated to the Hingham Bathing Beach on Otis Street (Rte. 3A).
In the fall of 2006, a small group of Hingham citizens who were concerned about the future of the HFM engaged the vendors and together they began a revitalization effort. The market incorporated in 2009.
In 2012, an active group of volunteers known as the Friends of the Hingham Farmers Market began offering services to market patrons and vendors as well as offering outreach programs in the community. Everyone is welcome to join the group of Friends – made up of residents from all over the South Shore.
