We are leading a project to build A Year-Round Home for Our Farmers' Market

The Brunswick Farmers’ Market Project is an effort to revitalize two hundred-year-old freight shed barns in downtown Brunswick into a year-round farmers’ market and community gathering space. The barns are owned by the Brooks family, of Brooks Feed and Farm Supply store, and sit on the corner of Union and Weymouth Streets. The project concept involves a combination of historic preservation and complementary new construction to realize the full vision for the new market and community space.

Our Goals

1. Honor the agricultural and railroad history of the freight sheds by returning the market to the train tracks and bringing community gatherings back to the barns.
2. Build a permanent structure for the Market that connects to the surrounding landscape and provides shelter from inclement weather without replacing the open-air nature of the market.
3. Relieve significant traffic congestion caused by the market’s current weekday location on The Mall. Improve circulation, access, and parking for vendors, shoppers, and neighbors.
4. Create an additional community green space in the Downtown.
5. Ensure year-round public access to local farm produce and goods.
6. Offer a market accessible by car, foot, bike, and train.
7. Connect the new market to the centralized downtown by making it visible from its former location on the mall, using the new Station Avenue as the axis.
8. Enhance Brooks Feed and Farm Supply’s visibility and customer base.
9. Support our local farmers with a space designed specifically to meet their needs.
