The Northwood Farmers Market and Non-profits

The Northwood Farmers Market partners with local non-profit organizations by offering a free space to such organizations at the market.  Our aim is to have one non-profit at each market.  If you would like a chance to present your organization to the local community and perhaps even raise funds or offer memberships, this is your opportunity.  

Please contact us  here.

A honey of a prize

George Dean, of Cordwainer House in Northwood, is a member of the NH Beekeepers Association,  At their recent spring meeting at Lake Shore Farm in Northwood, he entered his honey in their first ever tasting honey tasting contest, along with about 30 other beekeepers.  And he won first prize!  
George sold his honey at the Northwood Farmers Market last summer, and will be joining us again.  Besides his regular honey, he also makes creamed honey, which is a treat on toast, etc.
