We have another gorgeous day in store for the market this weekend! Now is the time to get out there and take advantage of all the wonderful summer produce that our local farmers have to offer. The joy of summer cooking is the simplicity of the menu, let the ingredients speak for themselves! How about a fresh corn salad with sweet cherry tomatoes and basil? Or a nice piece of fish from golden cod alongside some grilled summer squash. All reasons to come by the market and stock up for a week of healthy & delicious eats! If you’re heading to the beach for the day, stop by on your way to pick up a pre-made sandwich from Swiss Bakers and some fresh pressed juice. Don’t forget to get your fresh chicken from Grant Family Farm!

The crocuses are starting to bloom and the smell of spring is in the air! The Farmer’s Market team is starting to gear up for the 2016 market season. We’re looking to add more community volunteers to the committee this year if you’re interested in getting involved and helping us run and continue to grow this vibrant market. You can be involved as much or as little as you’d like, we are always happy to add new members to the planning committee but we’re also looking for volunteers to work a few markets throughout the summer. It’s a great way to get involved and give back to the community!
Our first meeting will be March 28th, please send us a quick note if you’re interested and we’ll send you more information on the time & location.
It looks like it’s going to be a cold one this weekend but that shouldn’t stop us New Englanders! Let’s get out there and take advantage of the fantastic items the farmers have this time of year.
