Dear Friends of the Museum,
As we all navigate these uncharted waters together, the Museum has reached out to our farmers from the Osterville Farmers’ Market to see how we can help. Their response has been overwhelming.
Many of our farmers and food vendors are providing door-to-door “no contact” delivery options…everything from farm fresh carrots, salad greens, potatoes, eggs, breads, pasta, marinara sauce, raw honey and beeswax candles, pies, cheeses, cookies, garlic salts, jams, and even toffee!
This service would help those who prefer to have items delivered (or shipped) and those who can’t find some of these items in stock. It also supports the heart of our community by buying fresh and buying local.
