Wakefield - Don’t miss the final market day of the season! The Wakefield Farmers Market brings local farm fare, specialty foods, and artisan products to Hall Park (next to Veterans Field, GPS 468 North Ave Wakefield MA) each Saturday from mid-June to mid-October.
Featuring great live music, a balloon magician, a cooking demo, and a Kid’s Activity Tent stocked with drawing materials, plus hula hoops, jump ropes, and sidewalk chalk, it is always a great place to shop, have a picnic, play, or just hang out on the shore of Lake Quannapowitt.

Our October 14 market day will feature the Katrina Marie band, a Boston-based band that has captivated audiences with soulful, sultry vocals, and a style of music that is effortlessly timeless. Blending heartfelt lyrics with catchy hooks, Katrina’s music feels at once familiar and yet altogether unique. “Katrina Marie rocks, rolls, and offers up all kinds of soulful expressions. There is no challenge her vocal prowess cannot meet and there is no style she cannot finesse." - Bill Copeland Music News. The Wakefield Farmers Market Music Program is sponsored by The Savings Bank.
The cooking demo at our Market Kitchen Tent will be presented by Suman Shah, who has been wowing folks with super tasty and easy recipes all summer. All our demos feature produce selected that morning from our farmers. Stop by to try a bite and pick up some recipes!
