It is hard to believe the Winter Farmers’ Market season is coming to a close! We are excited to invite you to our last market of the season at Exeter High School on Saturday April 11 from 10-2. It will be our Greens, Eggs, & Ham market with a Spring Greens Tasting, Information and Recipes to use a variety of available greens and eggs, which are both coming back into increased production with the longer and (slightly) warmer days. We’ll also be having a Spring Formal at the Winter Market and invite vendors and shoppers alike to come in fancy dress as we spring out of Winter.
The very talented duo of Alli Beaudry & Ryan Sandford will be back at the market to serenade and entertain. Patti Small of On the Edge Knife Sharpening will be back for out last market. Be sure to bring your kitchen utensils and garden tools for sharpening before getting back outside. At the Seacoast Eat Local Market Table you’ll find Certified Organic Seeds to start planning and planting for your own home grown produce this year. We’ll also have market totes, t-shirts, DIY books and more!
During the April 11 market we’ll have several guest groups joining the community to share about their work. Read more about their work below and be sure to visit their tables at market.
