On behalf of Rockport Exchange, thank you SO much for your support for our Harvestfest to Home Fundraiser! While we couldn’t gather together this year for our annual celebration of local food and drink on the wharf in Rockport, we were able to honor the harvest season and our fantastic local food purveyors by offering meals-to-go and a farmers’ market sampler.
Thank you to everyone who purchased a meal or sampler in advance, and thank you to everyone who came to our Harvestfest to Home pickup and purchased fresh produce, local flowers, and baked goods. We especially loved hearing live music again and are grateful to local favorites The Headlands for playing at the Harvestfest to Home Pickup — such an amazing treat!
And finally, a very special thank you to Rockport Music for hosting the fundraiser pickup, and to the folks at Common Crow, Cake Ann, Bella & Harvey, Marshview Farm, Sea & Cellar, and Lattof Farmhouse Kitchen for creating our delicious Harvestfest meals-to-go, and Brothers’ Brew, Halvah Heaven, Pigeon Cove Ferments, Spicy Shark, The Fudgery, Seaview Farm, Bonny Breads, Breakwater Roasters, Bliss Bites for contributing to our Harvestfest Market Samplers.
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.
