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.
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.
