If winter seemed long in these parts, spring seemed even longer. But that’s all behind us! The sun is shining now, and the bounty of summer vegetables is almost ready for market. Best of all, the Tilton Farmers’ Market opens NEXT WEEK: Friday, June 27. The market will run weekly, Friday afternoons from 3 to 7 p.m., through September 26 at the Tanger Outlet Center in Tilton, New Hampshire. It’s a great spot (Exit 20 from I-93, on Route 3); you won’t miss it.
We’re in our second year now at the Tanger Outlet Center, and expecting the market to be better than ever. Many new vendors will join us this year (we’re at 40 vendors and still taking applications), and we’re excited about each and every one of them. Just one quick highlight: the Big Love food truck, serving up fresh burritos, will be on-site at every market. Eat while you shop, or take a few home with you!
Joan O’Connor spent her winter (in addition to running the amazing Tilton Winter Farmers’ Market) scouting around northern New England for the best vendors for the summer market, and she found them! The 2014 lineup of market vendors represents the full range of local fare: fresh vegetables, fruits, baked goods, farm-fresh meats, seafood, artisinal cheese, homemade jams and jellies, natural bodycare products, wine, breads, dog treats, salsa and dips, gourmet popcorn, honey, maple syrup, hand-crafted goods, locally-roasted coffee and more.
