Saturday January 24th the Seacoast Eat Local Winter Farmers’ Market will be back at Wentworth Greenhouses in Rollinsford. In addition to the usual assortment of delicious local food there will be plenty of activities for young and old. Be sure to swing through the market between 10am and 2pm to stock your pantry, learn something new, and connect with the agricultural community.
Fiber Arts Demo
We’ll have a number of fiber artisans back at the Winter Market to showcase the many ways you can use local wool for goods, crafts and gifts. They’ll be featuring wool from Riverslea Farm of Epping and will have lots of hands on displays for all ages. Questions and curious kids welcome!
Learn Something New
Seacoast Permaculture will be displaying at the Winter Market. They offer DIY and homestead scale workshops and events on a number of different topics throughout the year. Stop by their table and learn more about preservation techniques and methods to use local foods available seasonally.
Local Food For All
At Seacoast Eat Local we believe local food is for everyone. We continue to partner with pantries during the Winter Market Season to collect and donate food for those in need. We have collected over 1,000 pounds this season alone but the work isn’t over yet. This time of year, just after the holidays, can be a challenge for many food pantries. Consider picking up an extra bag of veggies while shopping and drop it off at the Food Donation Table. Cornucopia Food Pantry will be at the market this Saturday. Stop by and learn more about their programs and efforts to fight hunger in the Seacoast.
Dance Your Cares Away
Music ties many communities together and is always a great way to lift your spirits. Come to any market and you’ll find children showing you the quickest path to joy, a little dance and mini maracas! We’ve got Alli Beaudry returning to the market as a musical duo with Ryan Sanford. Grab a bite to eat and enjoy their musical talents. There’s also always room on the dancefloor… 🙂
