Just a month away from Rockport’s celebration of local food! We’re hard at work planning all the aspects of Harvestfest, and we’d love to have you join us!
Harvestfest is run by volunteers and relies on the generosity of Rockporters and friends in order to happen. To volunteer, please sign up HERE and thank you for your help!
Hope to see you at the Rockport Farmers Market this summer, where local food producers and growers are gathering every Saturday morning from 9am-1pm. It’s a lot of fun and a great way to support local food besides! New vendors this year include Gloucester’s Finest Seafood, Rockport Public Schools’ Green Team, and Halvah Heaven.
We are also happy to have our long-term partnering vendors with us, offering smoked fish, fresh produce, locally-produced beef and poultry, breads, cookies, granola, pastries and so much more!
See you down at the market, and thanks for your support!

The Cape Ann Community Foundation disperses funds every year to worthy local causes. Rockport Exchange is thrilled to be the recipient of a $3,000 grant from the CACF to continue our initiatives in promoting and supporting local food networks.
The CACF is funded through the sale of specially-issued Cape Ann license plates. Your purchase of a Cape Ann license plate supports the work of the Cape Ann Community Foundation while promoting all that Cape Ann has to offer: it’s a win-win! For more, check out the work of the Cape Ann Community Foundation through their website, where you can also purchase license plates.
Last Friday’s fundraiser, Cocktails with the Cows, was a tremendous success—and a whole lot of fun—thanks to you all! Seaview Farm provided a lovely setting for a great evening celebrating local food and the generosity of our community. Continue reading “Thank you for your support…”
