There’s still time to visit the Saturday Farmers Market in Chelsea. The outdoor market season has been extended through Nov. 14.

The market is located at Palmer Commons and runs from 8 a.m.-1 p.m.

This Saturday you’ll find fresh baked goods like cakes, cookies, and breads.

There will also be eggs, cheese, and a selection of meats.

Plenty of pumpkins and seasonal produce like squash and potatoes, peppers and onions will be for sale.

Apple lovers will enjoy the wide variety of freshly picked apples for sale along with apple cider.

Artisans will be selling soaps, pottery, birdhouses, and more.

You also have the choice to order online as long as you do so by 6 p.m. on Thursday at the website

When you pick up your order, you will be directed to the parking area and asked to stay in your vehicle and display a sign with your name on it. Market volunteers will wear masks and observe proper social distancing while delivering orders and collecting payments from customers, which must be made with exact cash, credit care, or SNAP/DUFB.

At the on-site market, everyone who enters the market must now wear a mask, and there are masks available for those who don’t have one. Vendors, volunteers, and market staff are also required to wear a mask.

Market Manager Emily Griswold asks anyone with any sign of illness to please stay home.

Everyone is asked to practice social distancing of 6-10 feet and not to linger.

Shoppers will be asked to follow one-way pedestrian traffic signs using one entrance and one exit. There will also be hand washing stations.

Shoppers are asked not to touch or sample products, and vendors will choose and bag items.

Anyone with questions is encouraged to go to the market’s website: or to check for updates on social media.
