Make the connection

Our vendors produce everything that they sell. They grow it, they bake it, they sculpt and turn it, they sand it, wash it and package it, they draw it, bend it and bring it to market for you. Take the time to talk with these folks who bring you the labors of their livelihood every week. And share that story with your friends and neighbors. Farmers markets build that connection by bringing you closer to the source of the food and crafts that you buy. Mix in a little live music and enjoy.

Through October 26

Remember – the market will run through the end of October and there’s still plenty of growing, baking, knitting, carving, and canning to be found at market.

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.

How Local?

Everything that is sold at the Norwich Farmers Market is made or grown in one of the four counties surrounding the market. Grafton and Sullivan counties in Hew Hampshire and Windsor and Orange in Vermont supply us with over 110 vendors. That means that your vegetables have been picked fresh for market, some coming from the fields on Saturday morning. Many of the baked goods started the morning in the oven and some of the crafts are created while you’re shopping.

Come join us for a Saturday tradition. Get there early to pick up everything that you’ll need for a weekend of gardens, grills, and picnics. Bakers, weaver, carvers, and potters all conspire to make your time at market memorable.
