It’s the end of a Beautiful Summer Season

and the start of our Winter Markets

This is our last market of the summer season. All of the summer’s harvest is here for the taking along with the usual array of good things to eat and fine crafts that make your life beautiful. Have you planted your garlic yet? Turkey ordered?

We’ll say goodbye for the winter to many of our vendors  —  so wish them well and promise them that you’ll be back next spring. There are a bunch of us who will be moving into Tracy Hall in downtown Norwich for the November 3 market and for the rest of the winter (see the full schedule below)

Fall Meeting and Open House 

Open to the Public

Come Share Food and Ideas

November 11  –  5-7pm  –  Umpleby’s Bakery Hanover NH

The Fall Meeting an Open House is a putluck and will focus on letting the public in to see what we do. We’re also hoping to do a little long range thinking and we want to hear what you have to say.  We have 35 years under our belt but we’re still learning.

Come meet the Board of Directors, the Manager, and some of the Vendors. The agenda for this meeting is fairly open so let me know if you have an item that you’d like to talk about and we’ll see if we can address it. It should be fun evening.

Winter Storage

Now is a good time to start thinking about filling the pantry. Squash, apples, potatoes, carrots and other root vegetables can be stored in cool, dark areas of your cellar. Each fruit of vegetable needs just the right environment so ask the vendors the best way to keep a little bit of the summer with you all year round. And of course there’s canning and freezing. Stock up now with local food all winter long.

And some of our vendors offer winter shares that will provide you with off-season options for local veggies and meat.

Here are some photos from the Quechee Area Camera Club. They spent a morning at market in June and took some Spectacular PhotosContact Lisa Lacasse for arrangements to use the photos.

Did you realize that we have over 110 vendors – all right here from Grafton, Sullivan, Orange and Windsor counties? We have 50 vendors each week but some only come occasionally. You can find a list of vendors on our web page at Vendors & Links. For the Winter Markets we’ll have 30-40 vendors in the warmth of Tracy Hall.
