The Wolfeboro Area Farmers Market will open for the 2015 summer season on June 4. The market will be open every Thursday from 12:30 to 4:30 pm through October 8 at Clark Park, 233 South Main Street, in Wolfeboro, rain or shine.
Founded in 2002, the market has grown to an all-time high of 27 vendors, and Board Chair Fred Martin of Carriage Hill Honey says vendor applications are still coming in.
“Word has gotten around that the Wolfeboro market is a fun, community-driven market with a lot of heart,” says Martin. “Not only will we have more vendors, but the variety of local products will be better than ever.” Market offerings include fresh vegetables, fruits, dairy products, cut flowers, meats, honey, herbal products, baked goods—even vegan ice cream. “The all-volunteer board of directors meets throughout the winter to select vendors and plan ways to improve the market. We adjust things every year, based on what we hear from the community. It’s a fun market.”
Live music is provided by local musicians each week.
The 2015 season will feature a new “Double SNAP” program for food stamps recipients, who can use their Electronic Benefits Cards (EBT) at the market. Cardholders will receive shopping tokens that allow them to spend two dollars for every one dollar withdrawn from their EBT cards.
