Denise Jillson, executive director of the Harvard Square Business Association, commented “We couldn’t be more pleased to partner with New England Open Markets, who have been producing thriving open markets for the past 19 years. Harvard Square has a long and successful track record of hosting public events on our historic streets and this is the perfect addition to our engaging and exciting Calendar of Events.”
Christopher Masci, director of New England Open Markets said, “New England Open Markets serves over 1200 small businesses yearly, providing them with a venue for their talents and wares, and for the public, a unique shopping experience. Buyers meet the makers, the growers, the chefs, and learn a bit about the goods they are purchasing, where they originated, and how they were created. The vendors themselves, from all over New England and beyond, enjoy a supportive community of like-minded craftspeople, artisans and designers. The authenticity that can be found in the handmade and the independent give a refreshing choice to those in search of the individual. The mission of New England Open Market is to support that movement.”
For your shopping convenience, the Church Street Parking Lot is open for business.
