There's no question that the Dedham Farmers Market is filled to the brim with a wide variety of vendors this year.
But one iconic station to take to the market that has yet to arrive this year is Jack & Eric's Pirate Lemonade Stand, run by Dedham's Jack and Eric Linari.
The brothers have run their stand annually since 2008, selling homemade drinks at the Dedham Farmers Market and donating all proceeds to a local charity of their choosing each year. Earlier this year, the Dedham Board of Selectmen honored the brothers for their efforts in raising $1,000 last year for the town's Toys for Tots program.
So, when will the stand return to the Dedham Farmers Market?
Jack and Eric will host their first stand at this year's market on Wednesday, July 9, when they will begin raising funds for the Nicole M. Ahl Memorial Fund, according to the farmers market. The stand is expected to be at five of this year's farmers markets.
The Dedham Farmers Market is open Wednesdays from 12 to 6 p.m. through Oct. 29 on the green in front of the First Church of Dedham. For more information, visit facebook.com/DedhamFarmersMarket, facebook.com/DedhamPirates or dedhampirates.com.
