in the news: Winter Farmers’ Markets

In the Portsmouth Herald, Eating local in winter

Wentworth Greenhouses in Rollinsford will host a winter farmers market for the first time the Saturday before Thanksgiving, Nov. 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The farmer’s market will be held in the greenhouse, albeit one kept relatively cool for the sale of Christmas trees and wreaths. It’s organized in collaboration with seacoasteatlocal.org, said co-owner Bryan Wentworth.

“This being the first one, I don’t know what to expect,” he said. “I have a feeling it’s going to be pretty popular.”

An estimated 50 vendors will sell fresh salad greens, seafood, meat, pork, poultry, eggs, beets and winter squashes, he said.

There will also be prepared foods such as honey, cheeses and maple syrup.

“A big part of it, too, is supporting local businesses,” said Wentworth, whose family grows the local plants. “It offers the public more options. I think the more farmer’s markets the better, to get people in the habit of buying on a weekly or daily basis.

“Winter markets are really catching on this year.”
