“Our patrons asked us to open earlier so they could not only shop all the great vendors but also enjoy lunch while onsite or grab a ready-made meal for dinner,” said Betsy Ventura, who, along with Jean Baer, owns Local Roots, LLC and oversees the market at JetBlue Park each Monday. “This is a great lunch option for businesses, retired neighbors or tourists because there is such a variety from pulled-pork sandwiches, BBQ ribs, pasta, and subs to pizza, lobster rolls, chowder and more.”

Baer added there is outdoor seating available.

“The return of the farmer’s market at JetBlue Park has had a great response,” said Katie Haas, senior director of Florida business operations for the Boston Red Sox. “Not only can you shop and enjoy a great meal, but you can also stock up on all your favorite Red Sox merchandise at our Team Store as it’s open during the market hours.”
