The 2020 Motif No. 1 Day Commemorative Poster

During this difficult time, a strong community is more important than ever. Our 2020 festival poster highlights all the joys of being a part of this beautiful place while recognizing that this year is not like all the other Motif No. 1 Days that have been celebrated in Rockport.

The 2020 poster artist and designer is Darren Mason. Darren has been always been a crucial part of the work of Rockport Exchange, long before our nonprofit organization even had a name — back when we were an ad hoc group of enthusiastic and willing Rockporters, ready to contribute to building community in our corner of the world. Darren has generously given countless (literally, countless) hours to designing all of our logos and promotional pieces, as well as our merchandise. Not only does he give of his design talents, he has also given countless hours helping set up, run, and break down  our multiple yearly festival and events and the weekly farmers’ market. In many ways he is the spirit of Rockport Exchange, always an upbeat, positive, hardworking presence even during those times when things have been very, very hard for our little organization. 

So it is fitting that Darren design this year’s poster. He brings his positive spirit to this time, when things are very hard for many of us and the call to come together is more important than ever.

Thank you Darren, for more than a decade of what you’ve brought to Rockport Exchange, and to our larger community — locals and visitors alike. Thank you for bringing us together, yet again, with this year’s poster design.

Farm Delivery in Rockport!

As Rockport Exchange continues to focus on the importance of our local food network by preparing for the Rockport Farmers Market in uncertain times, we want to be sure to share with you what our hardworking market vendors are up to.

Many of you know Justin and Jamie Chase  (formerly of Arrowhead Farm and now of North of Boston Farm) from their many years of being vendors at the Rockport Farmers Market. In keeping with their essential work as farmers, Justin and Jamie are taking on COVID-19  by continuing to provide North Shore households with fresh, nutritious food. This work is more crucial now than ever.

Justin is delivering to Rockport on Saturday, March 28th. What a great time to have food from reliable, local source delivered to Rockport! Contact North of Boston Farm by Friday, March 27th at 8pm to get your order on the truck for Saturday’s delivery.
