The Farmacy at Harbor Health Brings Fresh Produce to Neighborhood

3rd July 2022

Community Farmer’s Market and Health Fair Open Fridays in July at 10 Minot Street in Dorchester

OPEN THIS JULY! The Farmacy at Harbor Health is a new community farmer’s market and health fair. The Farmacy is open 10:30 am – 1:30 pm on Friday, July 8, 15, 22, and 29, in the 10 Minot Street parking lot.

The Farmacy is a partnership between Dick’s Market Gardens, a family-owned farm in central Massachusetts, and Harbor Health.

Every week, the farm will offer locally grown fruits and vegetables picked fresh from the field at affordable prices. The farm will accept HIP, SNAP, cash, credit, and WIC and senior farmers market coupons. Harbor Health will provide free blood pressure screenings and summer health giveaways.

“At a time when food and gas costs are rising, we wanted to make it easier for people to get affordable fresh fruits and vegetables closer to home,” explained Chuck Jones, President and CEO of Harbor Health.

“We are grateful to Dick’s Market Gardens for partnering with us to support the health of our community this summer.”

Dick’s Market Gardens shared in a statement, “We are looking forward to coming to Dorchester and bringing a wide variety of fresh produce with us weekly.  The variety will change each week, but will include items such as blueberries, blackberries, corn, peppers, a wide variety of fresh greens, herbs, potatoes, squashes and more.”

“We thank Harbor Health for welcoming us to the neighborhood.  Dick’s Market Garden currently serves the Lunenburg, Worcester and Boston areas and we look forward to serving all of Dorchester with our our farm fresh produce.”

The Farmacy is open to all members of our community. The 10 Minot Street parking lot is located across the street from Daniel Driscoll – Neponset Health Center and next to the Harbor Health Food Pantry. For parking information and event updates, visit HHSI.US/Farmacy.
