April Showers Bring Farmers' Markets and More!

Are you ready for the month of May? It's definitely not going to be a dull month, that's for sure! I'm going to have a new format for May. On Mondays I will post the events for the upcoming week so that way I don't have one ginormous monthly post. I will also make a list of all monthly events on my blog sidebar.

So with that said, let's get to it. Here's the first set of upcoming events for this weekend:

May 1 - This is the last Free Family Fun Night at the The Children's Museum of New Hampshire from 5:30 pm - 8 pm. Free nights will resume in the fall.

May 1 - New England Barn Dance from 7 pm - 9m at the Good Shepherd School in Barrington, NH.

May 2 - Also at The Children's Museum of New Hampshire is their annual 5K Road Race & Fun Run fundraiser.

May 2 - First Portsmouth Farmer's Market of the season from 8 am till 1 pm. I am very excited for this event! The next set of markets to open include Dover, Durham, Exeter, Hampton and Kingston during the first week of June.

Also going on at the market will be the Local Food Advocates Training from 12:30 - 2:30 PM. Meet at Portsmouth Farmer's Market Info Booth then walk to Portsmouth Public Library about 1:00 PM.

May 2 - Hazardouse Household Waste Collection at the Turnkey Landfill on Rochester Neck Road in Rochester, NH.

A reminder that Emery Farm in Durham, NH will be opening for the season on May 1st.

The biggie this weekend is definitely the Portsmouth Farmer's Market. It's sure to be a festive celebration of spring and all the potential summer holds. Expect to see fresh greens, maple syrup, wine, meats and baked goods as well as plants for your garden or to give away for Mother's Day.

** Don't forget, Friday is your last chance to enter my giveaway. I'll be giving away a 30 Minute Mozzerella and Ricotta Cheesemaking Kit! Tomorrow I'll be bringing you a bread recipe that contains some of the leftover whey from cheese making. Yum! **

April is the perfect time to head your local homegrown farmer's market and pick up some vegetables, fruits, and cheeses. Springtime is always a great time of year for homegrown goodness.
