This week we could start our holiday shopping, stock up on soups or winter vegetables, buy greens for a stir fry or gourds to decorate our Thanksgiving tables.  Where?  At the Northwood Farmers Market, indoors at the Masonic Hall in Northwood, right next to the outdoor site at the parking lot at Rts. 4 & 202.  Please come by on Saturdays from 9-12:30 until Thanksgiving and support our local farmers, cooks and craftspersons!  A market is made up of vendors AND customers!  Here are pictures of the good stuff our customers can get.
