Julia Kenyon of Roslindale picked up a few veggies from Mike Smith, owner of Oakdale Farms.


Shoppers packed the Great Hall in Dorchester’s Codman Square Sunday afternoon for the opening day of the Dorchester Winter Farmers’ Market.

Now in its second year, the market offers up much of the usual fare seen at summer farmers’ markets plus fresh eggs, meats, and bake goods.

In addition to the nutritious offerings the market also works to make its selection affordable, giving some shoppers the option of paying for groceries using EBT/SNAP benefits.
