Winter CSA's and more markets!

There are two local farms offering winter CSA shares:

Back River Farm in Dover, NH

Winter farming is back for a limited time this season. I am offering 20 shares for an 8 week CSA which will consist of a LOT of salad greens and Asian greens and a host of other items.
For more information, click the farm name.

The share price is $200. Pickups will be Thursdays after 11 am at the farm.

Heron Pond Farm in Hampton, NH (with a Portsmouth, NH pick-up option)

There will be fourteen winter pick-ups, starting October 24, ending March 28, will include
some of the follow
ing: apples, broccoli, carrots, garlic, kale, leeks, onions, kohlrabi, pie pumpkins,
winter squash, beets, cabbage, celery root, potatoes, rutabagas, radishes, turnips, lettuce, salad greens, spinach, bok choi, Chinese cabbage, Belgian endive, Swiss chard, Asian greens, maple syrup, honey, and preserves.

The share price is $400 with a $200 deposit to hold your spot. You also have the option of signing up for a double share. If you choose to pick-up in Portsmouth, there will be an additional fee.

Farmer's Markets:

As far as farmers markets go, most are winding down this week. The Exeter market will be open through the end of October. The Portsmouth market will have it's final day on November 7th. And don't forget, there are a plethora of winter markets scheduled! Click here for the Seacoast Eat Local Winter Market schedule.

It's also been announced that
the Northwood Farmers Market is moving indoors for three “off season” markets at the Masonic Lodge right next to the municipal lot (Rts. 4, 202/9 and Rt. 43 at the traffic lights). These markets will run from 9:00 a.m. to noon on Saturday Oct. 24th, Saturday Nov. 7th, and Saturday Nov. 21st.

There's talk of a few other towns offering up a winter market, so be on the look out for those possible announcements.

Phew! Exhausting, but so excited for local options for the winter. I'm really considering the Heron Pond Farm CSA! What are your winter plans? Have you dutifully put away food or will you be relying heavily on the winter markets?
