Skip those big box stores, and convince your friends and neighbors to do the same! You can purchase all the seedlings and transplants you’d like from local farms, and get healthy plants of really interesting varieties.
You’ll also find lots of seedlings at farmers’ markets, which start this week. The Exeter Farmers’ Market starts this Thursday, May 2, 2:15-6pm, North Berwick starts Friday May 3, 3-6pm, and on Saturday May 4th, Kennebunk, Portsmouth, Sanford, Farmington and Newmarket are all happening. Take a look at our calendar for more market opening dates >
Here’s a fun fact! SNAP benefits can be used to purchase plants that produce food!
