© 2013 - Roslindale Village Main Street
On Saturdays, August 20th and September 17th, RVMS will shut down Poplar Street (adjacent to Adams Park) during the Farmers Market (9:00am to 1:30pm). There will be arts & crafts vendors, nonprofits, and local businesses lining up the street for those who walk, stroll, and wander.
Join us every Saturday in Adams Park between 9:00 am to 1:30 pm (rain or shine) from June through through the weekend before Thanksgiving.
The RVMS Farmers Market is Boston’s biggest neighborhood farmers market, with 30 vendors, up to 3,000 customers, and generates $4 Million in the local economy for both local and regional vendors and Roslindale Village businesses. In 2014 and 2016, the RVMS Farmers Market was voted the best farmers market in the City in WGBH's Boston A-List competition.
The idea of building a custom corral for Roslindale Village was hatched almost a year and a half ago. RVMS brought together neighborhood stakeholders who had been advocating for a corral with Street Ops, who was scouting locations to do a corral demonstration project. Residents and business owners of the Village, with the support of City Councilor Tim McCarthy, participated in working groups, site walks, and public meetings to discuss the lack of bike parking and evaluate opportunities for siting a corral. The bike corral is funded by a grant from the Boston Society of Architects Foundation, and elements of the corral and ribbon-cutting ceremony have been paid for by the Steve Gag Fund, set up by RVMS for bike-related efforts in the neighborhood.
