Easy Superbowl Party Shopping at the Winter Farmers Market

wafmwinter-ad-2016-17-finalMake sure the Wolfeboro Area Farmers Market is your first weekend stop for Superbowl Party shopping! Why not plan your menu around healthy and tasty local offerings like farm-raised chicken, beef, lamb and pork for the grill, artisan cheeses for nibbling and hot dips, crusty breads and sweets for dessert–even gluten-free. You can round all of that out with some yummy barbeque takeout from Smoke on the Water and wow your friends with southern flavors, too.

We’re in full swing with the winter market now, and it’s still happening on every first and third Saturday of the month, right through April 15. Markets are held from 10 am to 2 pm at the First Congregational Church on Main Street in Wolfeboro. There’s plenty of easy parking and the space is handicap accessible. The pace is at once leisurely and lively, with lots of conversation and tasting going on. Plan to grab a cup of hot coffee while you’re there and hang out for a bit!

Please help us to spread the word so we can continue to show our fine local vendors some winter love! Bring a friend or two to the market this week, and don’t forget the weekly gift certificate raffle. This could be your lucky week!

See you at the market!

Next Winter Market: Saturday, November 19, 10 to 2

IMG_20151114_121927363Winter market got off to a lively start on Saturday, November 5 with eager crowds and a fine variety of area vendors. This year’s schedule is intentionally easy to remember: we’re open on EVERY first and third Saturday of the month, right through the winter. Our last market is planned for Saturday, April 15. Markets are held from 10 am to 2 pm at the First Congregational Church on Main Street in Wolfeboro. There’s plenty of easy parking and the space is handicap accessible.

We’ve got a total of 19 vendors this season, and the list is still growing. This Saturday, we’re welcoming another new vendor, a coffee-roasting duo from Alton, Lucas Roasting Company. They’ll have freshly roasted beans, along with hot coffee to take along with you or sip while you shop. Check out the full and growing list of vendors, here.

This is the week to stock up on Thanksgiving necessities like fresh vegetables, cheeses, meat, baked goods and so much more (coffee, honey!). Thank you for your ongoing support of the Wolfeboro Area Farmers Market and for spreading the word in any way you can. See you Saturday!

Two More Summer Markets!


Yay for fall in New Hampshire! But, wait. The Summer Market is not over yet!!! Even better!

Be sure to join us for the last two markets of the season, tomorrow (September 29) and next Thursday, October 6. Our farmers still have plenty of fresh vegetables, meats, cheeses, honey, eggs and so much more.  And lots of sweet treats and artisanal products to round out the selections. Your support in this slightly quieter part of the market season means a lot to each and every one of our fine vendors!

Thank you for your support throughout the 2016 season! Stay tuned for news on the 2016-17 Winter Market, due to begin on Saturday, November 5. The Winter Market will run on the first and third Saturdays, 10 am to 2 pm, straight through April 15, at the First Congregational Church. (That’s pretty darn close to a year round market, right here in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire!)

See you at the market! (Just two more chances to win that $75 gift certificate you’ve been wishing for…)

Cooking Demo and Local Tunes Happening Today!

What a sweet season this is at the farmers market! Though the kids may be back to school and summer visitors packing up to head home, there’s still lots going on at Clark Park on Thursday afternoons. The farmers have more fresh produce than ever, for one thing, so plan to stock up, can up and eat up! And step on up to the market!

What to cook? We’ve got that covered. Today’s market will feature the UNH Cooperative Extensions’ Nutrition Connections program, with a cooking demonstration about cooking healthy meals on a limited income. Nutritions Connections staffer Joy Gagnon will prepare a summer beet salad today, using local beets and other local farm-fresh vegetables.

The UNH Cooperative Extension’s Nutrition Connections program provides free nutrition education to families receiving SNAP (food stamps), WIC, public housing, fuel assistance or any other form of public assistance. Other program goals include: basic nutrition information, reading food labels, saving money at the grocery store, feeding picky eaters and more. The market continues to offer Double SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) dollars for area Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) participants, allowing doubling of benefits up to a total of $20.

The Wolfeboro Area Farmers Market will be open for the 2016 late summer and early fall season through October 6 on Thursdays, from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. at Clark Park, 233 South Main Street, in Wolfeboro, rain or shine.

All market customers are encouraged to participate in a weekly raffle for a $75 market gift certificate. Made possible through a matching grant from the New Hampshire Department of Agriculture, a winner is drawn at the end of each market, and winners need not be present to win. As an extra bonus, winners will receive a sturdy, cloth shopping bag featuring the market’s iconic rooster logo.

Toe-tapping contra dance music will be happening at the September 8 market, provided by Brier Hill; they’ll keep us shopping with pep in our step!
