The Wolfeboro Area Farmers Market will open for the 2016 summer season TOMORROW — Thursday, June 2. The market will be open every Thursday from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. through October 6 at Clark Park, 233 South Main Street, in Wolfeboro, rain or shine. We’ll open with 33 great vendors, and we’re still reviewing applications for more!

New this year, is a weekly chance to win a $75 gift certificate! Made possible through a matching grant from the New Hampshire Department of Agriculture, shoppers will be offered a weekly raffle this year for a $75 market gift certificate. Raffle tickets will cost just $1 and a winner will be drawn at the end of each market, and you don’t need to be present to win. As an extra bonus, winners will receive a sturdy, cloth shopping bag featuring our iconic rooster logo.

There’s more exciting news! During the winter (when they weren’t busy with the winter market), board members secured 501C(3) status with the Internal Revenue Service, making it possible for the organization to receive tax-deductible donations. Your donation will help us to continue our successful Double SNAP program for EBT card users—they’ll receive $2 worth of market tokens for each $1 withdrawn from their card, providing access to healthy, market-fresh foods to many area residents. Even on the market’s lean budget, the board has made this program a priority since its inception a couple of years ago. To date, the market has given away approximately $1000 in benefits through the Double SNAP program. A donation box will be set up at the weekly market, or you may donate online.

Whether you support us by spreading the news, bringing friends to the market, shopping every week or giving a cash donation, you’re supporting our presence and work in the Wolfeboro community.

Be sure to like us on Facebook and share our news there, too!

See you at the market, Thursdays from 12:30 to 4:30!
