About

Our name speaks to our mission: Rockport Exchange is a nonprofit community organization at the crossroads of ideas and production.

Through our programs we create opportunities for residents and visitors alike to come together and contribute to a forward-looking, vibrant community built on a clear appreciation of Rockport’s past.

Rockport Exchange develops and sustains programming that enhances a sense of place. We strengthen our community by focusing on local food, creative culture, and industry. We believe in building an infrastructure of culture that will have a lasting impact on generations to come.

Missing Harvestfest?

Well, we are too! But we have a solution. Since we can’t come together this year to celebrate local food & drink, we found a way to bring Harvestfest home to you!  Added bonus: our Harvestfest to Home initiative supports the work of Rockport Exchange! 

No surprise, but this has been a tough year for our organization — just as it has been a tough year for so many of you. While we’ve worked to be flexible and find safe, sustainable, and creative ways to bring local food to our community, it’s clear we need your support to continue the Rockport Farmers Market, along with our festivals, initiatives, and events — whatever they may look like as we move forward, together. 

So you can enjoy a taste of Harvestfest with friends and family knowing your support helps us carry our work into 2021 and beyond.

Happy Harvestfest. Celebrate local.
