A pair of farm stands – one well established and another starting this year – will be providing Belmont residents with fresh produce for the coming growing season.
Belmont Acres Farm – previously Sergi’s Farm from 1947 to 2011 – is open on Saturdays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The stand is at 34 Glenn Rd. off Blanchard Road; enter through the main gate on Glenn Road and exit via Taylor Road. Shoppers are asked to leave pets at home as a family dog attacked the farm animals last year. The stand is also open on Tuesdays from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Farmer Tim’s Vegetables is a new farm stand this growing season, open on Sundays from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Boston Musicians’ Association’s parking lot at 130 Concord Ave., across from the entry to Belmont High School. Tim Carroll, a long-time Belmont resident who purchased a farm in Dudley, will sell fresh farm vegetables in his hometown from the stand.
