Thanks for coming to our February Rockport Winter Farmers Market! Your support of our vendors makes it possible to hold a farmers’ market in the winter. It was great to come out on a February day and see friends and neighbors and, of course, our growers and producers of local food. Hope to see you at the next one (read on for details)!
We are gearing up for our next Winter Farmers Market on Saturday, March 14th from 10a-2p at 17 Railroad Ave in the old Smith Lumber building. Special thanks to the Smith family of Crackerjacks-Whistlestop Market and Smith Ace Hardware & Lumber for providing the venue for the Rockport Winter Farmers Market! — with SymbioticJuice, LLC, Beckah’s Bangin’ Butter, Eclectic Clam, Scrub It LLC, Halvah Heaven, North of Boston, Seaview Farm and Farm Stand, Dancing Daisy Cookie Company, Crêpe du Jour, Lauralee’s Country Kitchen and Lattof Farmhouse Kitchen.
The Rockport Makers Festival was a huge success, and Rockport Exchange was thrilled to participate by hosting a Makers Food Market as part of the larger festival.
Many, many thanks to the First Baptist Church of Rockport for providing the venue, the Town of Rockport, the Chamber of Commerce, and most of all, Rusty & Ingrid Creative Company for co-producing this very special event.
A huge thanks, also, to our vendors for making such delicious, wholesome specialty food and to YOU, our patrons, for supporting local makers. Everyone’s efforts make our community — and the world! — a better place.
A busy Makers Food Market!
Festival-goers come prepared to support local makers in any weather.
Intrepid volunteer Kai Knudsen sorts the day’s trash into composting and recycling at the end of the market. (Thank you Kai!)
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!
