Lowell Farmers' Market

Since 1979, CTI has sponsored the Outdoor Farmers’ Market in downtown Lowell which offers fresh, locally grown produce from area farmers. Open every Friday from early July through late October, the Farmers’ Market provides the residents and visitors of Lowell an opportunity to purchase fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers, homemade preserves, and even homemade crafts from local farmers and artisans.
