Come enjoy the market indoors this Saturday!

The Northwood Farmers Market will hold our first indoor market of 2011 this Saturday, Oct. 15th, from 9-1 at the Masonic Hall on Rt. 4 in Northwood, right next to the municipal parking lot where we meet in the summer.  Lots of great produce and other local products, come shop for food, for holiday gifts, and listen to the music of Sandra Koski.  See you there!

Another reason to grow and eat local foods.

We have gotten very used to finding food from all over the country and the planet in our supermarkets, but climate change may limit some of the staples we expect to find in the stores.  Is it time to learn to eat what grows in our region for most of our diet, and to help our growers expand the crops and experiment with new and unfamiliar edibles?  What other ways can we cope with products like peanut butter and chocolate (yikes!) getting hard to find and expensive?
