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.

Local Food in a Global Crisis

As we all stay at home to slow the spread of COVID-19, we have a little more time to reflect on where we get our food. The supply chain for food in this country (and in most of the developed world) has an extensive reach, as we all know. While this provides a fantastic array of olive oils and a chance to eat naan bread actually made in India (thank you Trader Joes!), it also means that we have an unprecedented reliance on unknown manufacturers and growers for our day-to-day staples.

Local farmers and food producers, like every other small business owner, will be struggling through this national shutdown. Please consider buying directly from small growers and food producers as you source food for your family during this difficult time. Most food producers are willing to ship or deliver or arrange a way to connect (with the proper precautions taken for sanitization and social distancing of course!) in order for you to get food from a trusted source AND support a foundational part of our society — the people who make, grow, and produce our food.

Over the next few posts we will be sharing resources and contact information for our farmers’ market vendors as well as other local food resources.

For now we are sharing a very local food source to Rockport: Seaview Farm on 38 South Street. Seaview Farm offers  a great selection of local meat, eggs, and this weekend: fresh spinach! Check them out at www.seaviewfarmrockport.com or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/SeaviewFarm/

Take care during this difficult time, and we look forward to seeing you out and about in our wonderful community when the time comes. Reach out at any time to tell us your story of local food and local resilience — we would love to share it.

The Countdown is On!

The 2019 season of the Rockport Farmer’s Market kicks off Saturday, June 22, at 9 a.m. at Harvey Park in downtown Rockport. We are thrilled to host over a dozen returning vendors, along with some exciting new additions. We also feature live music every week – so fun!

What better way to start a Saturday? We hope to see you there!
