If you’re at all like the rest of us, the pantry is looking a little thin after Thanksgiving. The Winter Farmers’ Market on Saturday, December 1, from 10am–2pm, at Wentworth Greenhouses in Rollinsford is the perfect place to both restock and start the month on a positive note. You’ll find more than 50 farmers and food producers selling an incredible variety and quality of locally grown and produced food. An abundance of winter squash, pumpkins, cheeses, pork, baked goods, carrots, salad greens, apples, eggs, maple syrup, and potatoes are among the many items available! If you’re looking for something specific, find it in our searchable database and contact the farm directly; many vendors will even set it aside for you to pick up at the market. But don’t come alone — bring a friend, family member, co-worker, or neighbor (or two!) to the market, and share this fabulous experience. We look forward to seeing you there!

All vendors at the Winter Farmers’ Markets now accept SNAP/EBT!
At the market, SNAP recipients can 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, which are used just like cash, and can be used to buy food at approved vendors at the market. Learn More about shopping with SNAP
This program stimulates responsible use of the federal SNAP program in a way that promotes local sustainable agriculture, improves community health and nutrition, and boosts economic development through family farms. Learn more about how you can support increasing access to locally grown food for all members of our community.
Support for this program is provided by the Thomas W. Haas Fund of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation.
Really, you don’t have to come early!
We love that people are so excited about the market that they line up for the opening. But if you prefer a more relaxed shopping experience, come a little later. The market is open through 2pm, and farmers are well prepared with an astounding abundance of foods for you. Worried about missing a particular product? Many vendors accept pre-orders, or use the product search and contact farms directly if you need something set aside for you.
