Summer Farmers’ Markets

We operate summer farmers’ markets in four locations in the Seacoast region of New Hampshire: Portsmouth, Exeter, Dover, and Durham. These markets are open to the public and everyone is welcome! SNAP (formerly know as food stamps) is accepted as a payment method at this market. Visit the Market Info booth to get SNAP tokens and we will match you dollar for dollar with Granite State Market Match!

The markets are made up of a variety of different vendors who sell fruit, vegetables, meat, seafood, eggs, honey, maple syrup, baked goods, value-added foods, hot prepared food, crafts, and body care products.All of our vendors make, grow, harvest, catch, or craft 100% of the products they sell at the market. We also have musicians, nonprofits, and other guests to help make the markets fun, community-oriented, and engaging.

History of these markets

Seacoast Eat Local is now the proud operator of the summer farmers’ markets in Dover, Durham, Exeter, and Portsmouth beginning with the 2022 market season. These markets were previously operated by Seacoast Growers Association (SGA), a membership organization founded in 1977.  On January 9, 2022, the members voted to disband the organization after 45 years and hand over market management to Seacoast Eat Local. We thank the Seacoast Growers Association and their members for all the amazing work they have done to advance local food and agriculture over the years!
