Winding down and winding up activities have market volunteers, vendors and farmers buzzing this month. Tomorrow (Saturday, April 9) will be the last market of the winter season, open 10 to 2 at the First Congregational Church in Wolfeboro. We’re hoping for a bigger crowd than ever, thanks to Thursday’s great coverage in the Granite State News (see photo of Board Chair Fred Martin above, with the article). It’s not too late to pick up the paper if you missed the article!
The final market will also celebrate area CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture), with three farms in attendance offering information and inspiration for potential members. Chat it up with farmers from Mountain Heartbeet in Effingham, New Hampshire; Meadowfall Farm & Forage in Parsonfield, Maine; and Winnipesaukee Woods Farm in Gilford, New Hampshire. Together, they offer three great options for weekly vegetable (and more!) shares, and you can still support the summer market for even more goodness. We’re proud to say that the Wolfeboro Area Farmers Market can meet very close to all of your healthy, local food needs.
Looking forward (always), board volunteers are scurrying to finalize vendors for the summer market, which is set to open earlier than ever this year—Thursday, June 2. We’ll be at Clark Park once again, on Thursdays from 12:30 to 4:30, through October 6. If you’re an interested vendor, be sure to check out our vendor information packet and contact us ASAP to be sure you don’t miss out on getting your name on our promotional materials.
Be sure to stop by at the last market of the year and celebrate a tremendously successful first season by picking up a few things to get you by until June 2. Happy Spring, friends!
