Postcard-perfect weather welcomed a cheery crowd of shoppers to the market on opening day, many of them waiting at the entrance well in advance of the opening bell as vendors scurried to prepare for the big rush.
Clark Park in Wolfeboro is a spacious, cool and green setting for the market, with its expanse of lawn that encourages strolling and stopping to chat—and that’s just what folks did. Locals, market regulars, seasonal residents and visitors all took their time enjoying the scene, many connecting with old friends they hadn’t seen since last season.
The Wolfeboro Area Farmers Market, like most farmers markets, is a rain or shine event. Even so, we all hope for good weather on opening day and, as Board Chair Fred Martin observed, “We got exactly what we ordered!”
Many thanks to our shoppers for supporting the market once again! 2014 is going to be a fine year!
Vendor Spotlight: Kearsarge Mountain Soaps and Sundries
Joining the Wolfeboro Area Farmers Market for the 2014 season is Kearsarge Mountain Soaps and Sundries of North Conway, New Hampshire, with a beautiful line of all-natural bodycare products.
Lori Bushey produces goat milk soaps and lotions, lip balms, herbal insect repellents, baby products and much more, and has been refining and improving the line of products now for more than 16 years. She sets up at two other New Hampshire farmers markets, and was eager to join the Wolfeboro market after hearing so many good things about the people, setting and energy of the market.
Most popular in the Kearsarge Mountain Soaps and Sundries line of products are the goat milk body lotion, described as “A thick, creamy blend of magical goat milk and skin-nourishing oils and butters to help you love the skin you’re in.” Shoppers also head for the New Hampshire Lilac Soap (also made from goat milk) and all-natural bug spray (even a deerfly formula!).
Be sure to check out Lori’s products next week when you visit the market.
