Queen Square Market Kicks Off

Fresh, local, and sustainable--that's the idea behind the annual Queen Square Farmer's Market, which is celebrating its second year on June 17th. It's a popular event with 60 vendors already signed, up, and fun activities from hula hooping to yoga and live entertainment. Jody Kliffer is organizing the market with his friend Brian Irving. He tells CHSJ News he's pleased with the variety of vendors this year as well as the level of interest the community has shown.

"It's going to be a good range, we're going to have more produce vendors than we had last year. We're going to have a lot of interesting ethnic foods, hot foods, baked foods."

Kliffer says it's important to get people thinking about buying local, as well as enjoying a little-used green space in the South End.
