LRE’s Picks – Farm Stands
Filed under Island Times
One of the best things about living on Nantucket are all the small farm stands around the island! There are a lot of options when it comes to locally grown, small, local farms. Check out the list below of some of our LRE picks:
165 Hummock Pond Road | Website
Boatyard Farm is located out Hummock Pond Road near 167 Raw on the way to Cisco Beach. Boatyard has a selection of seasonal, fresh, local produce but they are really known for their eggs. Eggs are available 24/7 at the farm and are the most delicious part of anyone’s breakfast!
Fog Town Farm
168 Hummock Pond Road | Website
Fog Town Farm is located on the island and specializes in growing salad crops, root vegetables, heirloom tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants. They also have a beef-delivery service. They’ve partnered with farms in North Vermont and delivers grass-fed beef to island residents. They can be found at the farmers market every Saturday in season, and offer a CSA as well.
Moors End Farm
40 Polpis Road | Website
Moors End Farm is a family run farm at the base of Polpis Road. They have eggs, honey, and copious amounts of local vegetables to make every meal. They have 20 acres of cultivated land which yields corn, tomatoes, berries, squash, and more.

Sustainable Nantucket is the one we have to thank for the great Farmers & Artisans Market we get to enjoy every Saturday during the season. The Farmers & Artisans Market is designed to support and strengthen our traditional industry of agriculture. All vendors are seasonal or year-round residents of Nantucket and all goods are grown or produced on the island. The market is located in the heart of downtown Nantucket on Cambridge and North Union Street and is held from early June to mid-October.
