We are at 23 patrons for the Harvestfest to Home Fundraiser, and we are GRATEFUL.

Our Goal?

To reach 100 patrons showing support for the Harvestfest to Home Fundraiser and the nonprofit Rockport Exchange. Every year thousands of visitors and locals alike enjoy our festivals and the Rockport Farmers Market. It doesn’t seem impossible to reach our goal of 100 supporters. Can we count on you to be among them?
 
Thanks for placing orders, donating, and spreading the word!
 
The deadline is October 12th — we can do this! Click HERE to place an order or share the link, and thank you!
 
Enjoy these memories from Harvestfests from previous years, and thanks again for your help in bringing the festival back by supporting Rockport Exchange!
 
 
 

Feeding Families at the Rockport Farmers Market

From this week’s edition of the Rockport Exchange newsletter:

Feeding Local Families: A Collaborative Effort

Last week we met with representatives of the organizations Awesome Rockport and We Are All in This Together to discuss food insecurity in Rockport, and how to address it with local resources. Both groups have been working hard to meet the needs of local folks who have encountered burdens brought on by COVID-19. 

True to these organizations’ track record of getting things done, within 24 hours of our meeting fresh produce from the farmers of the Rockport Farmer Market, along with an array of non-perishable goods, was delivered to four local households in immediate need of assistance by Kristen Michel of We Are in All This Together.

Rockport Exchange looks forward to continuing in this collaborative effort, and appreciates the partnership with Awesome Rockport and We Are All in This Together and the hard-working farmers who bring their fresh produce to the Rockport Farmers Market each week. 

To contribute to this joint effort or share a need, please get in touch at rockportexchange01966@gmail.com, and for more updates from this week’s newsletter, CLICK HERE .

#GivingTuesday


What a year!

2019 was a busy one for Rockport Exchange, to say the least. From May to October our volunteers worked to bring you 18 weeks of local food, culture, and community-focused programming. And it’s not over yet! We still have a great Holiday Makers Food Market happening (December 14th: mark your calendars!)

How do we make it all happen? With YOUR help!

In this season of giving, please consider making a donation to the nonprofit Rockport Exchange. Every dollar is important; every contribution makes a difference.

Thank you for being a part of our work in making our community stronger!

Please DONATE HERE, and thank you!
