- June 23 - Michael Ehlenfeldt, GM, Executive Chef Stone Hearth Pizza
- July 7 - Bertucci’s Marc Costa, Cullinary Manager
According to the website, there are more to come.
The Needham Farmers Market opens Sundays, from 1-5 p.m. on the front lawn of First Parish in Needham, according to an announcement Farmers Market spokesperson organizers.
