Lexington's Farmers' Market Named "The Best Farmer's Market"

Lexington's Farmers' Market, which sets up shop every Tuesday afternoon at the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and Woburn Street, was recently named the best farmers' market in Boston by Boston Magazine.

The magazine praises the market's ever-expanding list of more than 30 vendors, which sell everything from fresh mozzarella to hummus to recently picked flowers and produce. The entry also praises the market's classes on topics such as raising backyard chickens, and community outreach that teaches kids to eat fresh and local food.

Runners-up in this category were the Belmont Farmers' Market, which is held every Thursday from 1:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Belmont Center parking lot, and the Copley Farmers' Market, which is held Tuesdays and Fridays at Copley Square.

This week at the Lexington market, visitors can enjoy one of the touted events, a discussion about raising backyard chickens with Lexington resident Tracey Herbert. The event starts at 4:00 p.m and is free.

The market hosted Lexington resident Carolyn Plourde and her chickens for a similar event in June.

The farmers' market is held every Tuesday from 2 p.m. to 6:30 p.m
