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!

Coming up in just a few days: the Rockport Winter Farmers Market at StudioCrepe in Rockport! Support your local food growers and producers during the long New England winter.
Fresh greens, root vegetables, smoked fish and mussels, pork, beef, eggs, sausage, cold brew coffee, jams, pickles, dried fruit, sauerkraut, bread, baked treats — even herbal remedies and dahlia tubers! The March market has a little something for everyone. You can even have a custom crepe made by the good folks at StudioCrepe, using fresh ingredients you pick up at the market.
Join us this Saturday and see your friends and neighbors as they venture outdoors in the light of early spring. See you there, and thanks for supporting local food!
