Just a month from now Seacoast Eat Local will be bringing back our annual Winter Farmers’ Market series. We are so excited to be working with Wentworth Greenhouse and Exeter High School once more! We’ll be offering 11 markets from November through April. Come on out and bring your friends and family to nourish bodies and minds while supporting the region’s agricultural community and economy.
It can be hard to move on from outdoor summertime markets, but just imagine coming in from the crisp winter air, entering a warm sunny room filled with tables loaded high with fresh vegetables. Piles of carrots, potatoes, shallots and squash are nestled up to local jams, breads and eggs. A variety of New Hampshire musicians will be back to entertain families and friends. With different cooking demonstrations, kids’ activities and market features, each event is a vibrant scene offering an incredible selection of locally produced food.

We are continuing to offer the SNAP/EBT token program at our winter markets. SNAP benefits can be used to make purchases at the winter farmers’ markets. SNAP recipients choose how much they would like to spend that day on food purchases. A market staff member will then swipe their EBT card for that amount. The customer is then given wooden tokens, that are used just like cash, and can be used to buy food at the market. Learn More about shopping with SNAP. We will again be offering the Market Match Incentive Program. Up to $10 of funds taken from your EBT card will be matched dollar for dollar to use on purchase of fruits and vegetables.
Please help ensure these markets continue to thrive by sharing the information with your friends, family, coworkers, and community. Download and print a Winter Farmers’ Market poster to hang in your workplace, library, church, coffee shop, or storefront. Willing to hang six or more posters? Send an email to [email protected] and we’ll mail them to you to post around town.
