From the Seacoast Growers’ Association:
For the first time, the Exeter Farmers’ Market will stay open to the end of October. Until Thursday, Oct. 29, you can find over 30 vendors at Swasey Parkway, from 2:15 to 6 p.m. every week.
Portsmouth, host to the Seacoast’s first Seacoast farmers’ market back in 1977, is the both the largest and the latest running of all. Its final day for 2009 won’t be until Saturday, Nov. 7. In the meantime, over 40 vendors of local produce, meats, dairy products, seafood, gourmet prepared foods and a variety of fine crafts are set up at City Hall every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. All markets are open rain or shine.
The Exeter and Portsmouth Farmers’ Markets, as well as Durham (Mondays), Hampton and Kingston (Tuesdays), and Dover (Wednesdays) are coordinated by Seacoast Growers’ Association. For more information, including maps to each market and a complete list of all vendors, visit www.seacoastgrowers.org.
