Mattapoisett — The Old Rochester Farmers’ Market is back in full swing, holding its second event of the season on Tuesday outside of Old Rochester Regional High School.

The farmers’ market is held on Tuesdays throughout the summer from 3 to 6 p.m.

This week's market featured a wide array vendors featuring items from homemade maple syrup to exotic pets.

African tortoises and frogs, as well as a prairie dog and several guinea pigs were on display in a tent run by Perry’s Exotic Pets, a local pet service.

Two Tabor Academy students who started a homemade guacamole company are featuring their product at the farmers’ market for the first time this year.

Aidan Conroy and Ryan Ceien, who are both entering their senior year at Tabor, started their company, “Rockin’ Guac,” in March of this year.

“I took an economics class and I was good at making guacamole so I put the two together,” Conroy said.

The market also featured classics such as fresh produce from Rochester’s Cervelli Farm, which has been a mainstay of the farmers’ market since its inception.
