We went to the Seacoast Eat Local farmers' market in Exeter today - for the first time, we decided to go toward the middle of the market (which runs from 10-2) instead of toward the beginning. Made for a nice, peaceful trip through the aisles, since the crowds had diminished - and indeed, as promised, there were still plenty of goodies left when we arrived! We picked up Empire apples (I'm loving that the New Hampshire orchards have apples from their cold storage that they're bringing to the markets still now in March!), potatoes, onions, rutabaga, and carrots. We still have plenty of local chicken, pork, and beef in the freezer, so this was a meat-free shopping trip.
Next weekend (3/20), there are farmers' markets in Newmarket and Rye, and then the following weekend (3/27) is the next Seacoast Eat Local market in Rollinsford. I'm looking forward to seeing what will be available at the markets as we head toward Spring!
Are we having fun yet?
