This coming Saturday, January 16th, there will be two winter farmers' markets happening on the Seacoast. One will be in Newmarket at the Stone Church from 9 am - 1 pm. and the other in Rye at the Rye Junior High School from 11 am - 2 pm.
Here are some things you can enjoy from the Newmarket Winter Farmers' Market:
- Sunflour Baking returns to the market with artisan breads and pastry…including their famous “cinnamon beasts”
- Fleur de Sel or The Flower of Salt will only be at the market on the 16th. Rich in tradition, taste, iodine and mineral content, the Fleur de Sel is also known as the "caviar of the salt".
- Peter Allen of Newfield's Own Produce will be selling a few different books by Sally Fallon and Joel Salatin at cost, such a great opportunity to add these books to your library
- Agape Homestead Farm joins the market with their beef, pork, chicken and goat cheese ~ including 3 spreadable, herbed chevres
- Blue Bell Greenhouse will be at the market with fresh freesia and more
- Linda Chandler will be bringing LOTS of farm fresh eggs
- Healthy Home Harvest will be bringing fresh greens and Grey Dove and Italian Oyster mushrooms (these go fast from what I understand!)
- Sweet Melissa will be bringing soup (curried coconut chicken), sandwiches with goat cheese, red peppers & onions and breakfast burritos
- Yankee Fisherman’s Cooperative with delicious native shrimp and lobster
- The musician performing at the market will be Amy Petty.
Featuring a variety of local produce, fresh native shrimp, fish, meats, poultry, fresh baked goods & breads, cheeses, teas, herbs, maple syrup, and take-home macaroni & cheese. Even though the ground is snow covered it’s a great time to plan your 2010 garden. Bring last year’s extra seeds and your saved seeds to the Seed Exchange Table on January 16th and swap seeds with your friends and neighbors.Sorting Seeds post at Seacoast Eat Local.
I am really excited for this weekends markets. A lot of great food is on tap for you to purchase! I hope you take part this weekend and get ready for another great market in Rollinsford on January 23rd.
(Oh, and don't forget about the various Button Up NH home weatherization workshops going on around the state. It's a great way to stay extra cozy this winter season and save a little dough)
