Near the center of Salem is a two block square of stores and outdoor kiosks where people can walk around and shop. No motor vehicle are permitted here,but there is ample parking in the public lot near by and the adjacent East India Mall Garage.
From June to October this area hosts the North Shore’s best local farmers’ market-plenty of fresh fruit and veggies are sold here, along with local merchants selling organic products. On certain days there is live DJ music spinning. Colorful local characters pass by the market heading down to the bars, local street artists entertain children, and community groups staff information tables distributing health & safety information, free bicycle helmets, samples of sunblock & other summer healthcare products. The air is festive on Farmer’s Market Day in the Witch City.
