Winter Farmers' Market December 4th in Exeter

Well my CPU is mended and now just needs to be picked up!  But the latest wrinkle to interrupt my blogging is throwing out my back right around Thanksgiving.  I am incredibly grateful to Tina of Pinewoods Yankee Farm (love their grass fed beef, contact her to arrange pickup some delicious meat cuts!) for recommending the most fantastic chiropractor, Dr. Matthew Hotz, in Lee who opened his doors just for me on Friday.  Truly I am proud to live in S. NH, I absolutely love the community in which I live.  Everyone is so giving of their time, knowledge and experience, I couldn't be more blessed to live where I do.

So without spending too much time sitting, which still doesn't feel 100% pleasant, let me get right to the point.  Here's the latest press release from Sara Zoë Patterson of Seacoast Eat Local regarding the upcoming farmers' market this coming weekend in Exeter, NH!

Winter Farmers’ Market in Exeter, December 4

The outside summer markets are over and it's time to turn our thoughts inside with the first Exeter Winter Farmers' Market of the 2010-2011 season. The holiday season is in full swing and eating healthy, local food with every meal is more than possible. Come and visit the farmers' market community for a soul warming Saturday overflowing with irresistible food and food gifts for the season.

Saturday, December 4, 40 farmers, fishermen and food producers will be in the cafeteria of the new Exeter High School in Exeter, NH from 10am-2pm, selling their meats, cheeses, milk, eggs, vegetables, fish, prepared foods, baked goods, honey and maple syrup! You can find a full list of participating vendors and the products they will be selling at www.seacoasteatlocal.org. The new Exeter High School is located at 1 Blue Hawk Drive, or 315 Epping Road for GPS.

Seacoast area farmers and food producers have expanded their offerings in response to customers seeking fresh, wholesome, sustainable foods and this season’s winter markets include a wide diversity of local products. Shoppers can look forward to filling their tote bags with a wide variety of vegetables including salad greens, broccoli, bok choi, kale, radishes, cabbage, lettuce, winter squash, carrots, potatoes, turnips, onions, garlic, and parsnips. Local, sustainable meats and seafood will be for sale such as beef, pork, chicken, lamb, duck, goat, turkey and lobster as well as dairy products including eggs, milk, and cheeses. Honey, maple syrup, prepared foods and baked goods round out the farmers’ market making the market a one-stop shopping opportunity for local food.

Share the harvest

As in year’s past, each Seacoast Eat Local winter farmers’ market will feature an area food pantry collecting donations of food. You are encouraged to purchase fresh foods to donate; pantries are seeing a sharp increase in demand for their services and those in need are also eager to eat wholesome foods. Potatoes, carrots, onions, salad greens – any product available for sale at the market would make a welcome donation. Financial donations are welcome and will be used to increase purchases of local food for the pantry. Farmers generously donate hundreds of pounds of foods at each market and the combined efforts of shoppers and farmers makes a significant positive impact in our community.

Here's an update!  Eastman's Fish Market is offering a promotion for customers at the Winter Farmers' Market this Saturday December 4, "If you bring a copy of your favorite fish recipe we'll give you $2.00 off your purchase of $12.00 or more!"
