If you missed last Saturday’s Strawberry Festival, you can still load up on strawberries this Saturday at the Chelsea Farmers Market. The market takes place at Palmer Commons, 222 South Main St., and runs from 8 a.m.-1 p.m.
There will also be a variety of fresh greens, beets, and rhubarb for sale, along with honey, eggs, meat, cheese, French baked goods, gluten free cookies, muffins, and more.
Among the vendors is Joan Hutchinson, whose stand is called Affeathermations. She’s been selling at the Chelsea Farmers Market for more than 20 years.
Affeathermations sells Hutchinson’s hand-made pieces that are made of natural, mostly found materials. She says her products range from those that are purely decorative to those used in mind and body work.
You can find Affeathermations at both the Saturday and Wednesday Chelsea Farmers Markets.
