Northeast Harvest is a Buy Local program representing Essex and Middlesex counties supported by the Essex Agricultural Society. Northeast Harvest works to help sustain the farmers and agricultural producers of both counties in Massachusetts. We work in collaboration with many other organizations as well as individual growers and agricultural producers to highlight the number and variety of farms and food products that are available in northeastern Massachusetts.

Whether you live in a city or rural township, a farmers’ market is easy to find today. Not so not too long ago! Back in 1977, there were only 7 farmers markets in the entire state. Today there are hundreds and 55 of them are in the NortheastHarvest region.
