Thank you!

The second Virtual Rockport Farmers Market took place on Saturday, May 9th. In spite of the wind, rain, and SNOW, we had a great market, distributing local food to over 60 households.

A big thanks to our vendors, to our patrons, our volunteers, and to Seaview Farm, for hosting the distribution of the goods sold online through our Virtual Market.

Look for the next market to be held on Saturday, May 23rd (the market opens for online orders on Sunday, May 17th). We will have  fresh bread, local eggs, organically-grown seedlings, local beef, baked treats, and a great range of value-added products from sauerkraut to almond butter to hot sauce.

The Motif by Rockport Artist David Arsenault

Rockport artist David Arsenault submitted  four different depictions of the Motif, each one entirely unique in capturing the Motif in a different mood. Since moving to Rockport five years ago, David has been generous with his talent in donating to the community — providing one of his paintings of the Motif all the way back in  2017 for our annual Motif No. 1 Day Commemorative Poster (see below).

Thank you for your gifts and your ongoing generosity, David!

From Rockport with Love!

Check out this beautiful video from our friends at Addison Choate  in Rockport. (The Motif plays a starring role, of course!) The creativity of Rockporters never ceases to amaze us, and we are grateful to the owners of Addision Choate for sharing this video with the world, especially during a time when it so many of us miss seeing these sights in person.

Hope this film inspires you to create your own contribution to celebrating Rockport and the Motif in the coming weeks!
