Volunteer Day At The Mattapan Square Farmer’s Market

July 24, 2023

On July 8, 2023, several Norfolk Hardware employees and managers spent the day volunteering at the local Mattapan Square Farmer’s Market, hosted by the Mattapan Food & Fitness Coalition.

Norfolk employees spent the day handing out gardening supply buckets, donated by Norfolk Hardware & Home Center, as well as hosting live container gardening demonstrations for farmer’s market attendees.

The Mattapan Square Farmer’s Market is a community event every Saturday from July – October, promoting and supporting locally-produced and healthy foods. Many businesses also come together to give away backpacks, bikes, coupons, and more items to members of the community.
