Celebrate your love of all things local on February 14th at the Winter Market!
The Seacoast Eat Local Winter Farmers’ Markets are returning to Wentworth Greenhouses on Saturday, February 14th from 10am till 2pm. Not only is the market on Valentine’s Day this year, we also have our CSA Day Event going on for even more connection with the community that feeds you! Be sure to mark your calendars and come out for a day of food and fun with friends and family.
Show some love for your community:
Cornucopia Food Pantry will be on hand sharing information on their support programs and collecting food donations to help those in need. Last year we collected and donated nearly 2,000 pounds of fresh food to area pantries throughout the winter market season. We are well on our way to exceeding that level this year. Please consider picking up a few extra items at the market and dropping them for donation at the pantry’s table on the way out.
Show some love for area musicians:
Mike Morris is a market favorite and often has a few remixes of old classics tailored for the market. We can’t wait to have him back to sing, entertain and bring a smile to your face. It may be the day of love, but slow dances will be optional.
Show some love for someone special:
There are many ways to show how much you care about your partner, child, friend or colleague. Take a stroll through the market and think about alternative ways to say I love you. Boxed sets of jams or sauces, a gourmet fresh pasta dinner, growlers of local beer, maple candied nuts or a classic chocolate bar are just a few of the possibilities you will find walking through the market. This year Seacoast Eat Local will also have Valentines for sale at the Market. Pick up a few or the whole set to give out to your favorite farmers and food producers.
Show some love for the Winter Farmers’ Markets:
