Healthy Living Day

Pictures from Healthy Living Day are here.  We had a new maple products vendor, Folsom's Sugar House from Chester, trying the market out.  Also, not pictured, was the new fitness center going in at the Northwood Garage complex.

Another lovely summer day.

Passport to NH Bounty

New Hampshire Eat Local Month, celebrated throughout August, is a collaboration of the NH Department of Agriculture, Markets, and Food and dozens of businesses, individuals, and groups throughout the state. New this year is the Passport to Local Farms Weekend, August 28-29. Passport to Local Farms is a statewide open house including almost 60 participating farms.
The event is interactive and invites visitors to obtain an official "passport" to collect stamps at each farm visited during that weekend. Those who collect four or more stamps are eligible to submit their passports for a prize drawing in September. Many of these farms will include free samples and opportunities to purchase NH grown fruits, veggies, dairy and more!
It's easy to get started. Click for a Passport and a list of some of the great raffle prizes.
