Weston Farmers' Market

Dear Weston Market Vendors and Weston Community


On behalf of the board of management of the Weston Village BIA, it is with regret that we inform you that Gaeta Farms will no longer be participating in the Weston Market as a vendor.

While trying to maintain the integrity and professionalism of the market, as well as the confidentiality of the Gaeta family, there have been several issues which have not been resolved, and in fact have escalated in recent weeks. We feel it is in the best interest of the Market as a whole, the Weston community and the BIA to discontinue our relationship.

We ask for your patience and trust during this difficult time. We assure you we are working very hard to ensure we have a professional, successful market upon our return to John Street for the 2020 season. 



Masum Hossain, Chair,

Weston Village BIA
