It's Super Bowl Weekend!

Are you ready for some football?! The Super Bowl has become an unofficial food holiday, inspiring folks to arrange mounds of snack foods into the shape of a stadium. Create a football field out of guacamole if you must, but kick it up a notch and add some pastured-raised beef to those nachos! Spice up your dips with chutney and sauces made right here in New Hampshire. That tower of sandwiches will taste better when the bread is hearty, fresh, and local! And when it comes to dessert trays, we have you covered with all sorts of delectable treats. Visit us on Saturday from 10 a.m.

Juice It!

You asked for a turbo-powered blender for Christmas and it's still in the box. The perfect tool to keep your New Year resolution of healthier eating on track, it's a little intimidating because you're not sure what to put in it. Fear not! Just bring your shopping bag to the Winter Farmers' Market and load it up with a variety of fresh greens, vegetables, fruit, and honey. Experiment with different flavor profiles - try something sweeter for breakfast and more savory for lunch. You'll feel super healthy, and even better knowing that your food was grown right here in New Hampshire!

Beat the Mid-Winter Blues

You've been hibernating since New Year's Day, haven't you? It's easy to do, it's cold and snowy and winter gear is a nuisance. We promise that coming to the Winter Farmers' Market will open your eyes to a whole new shopping experience; our vendors work hard to produce delicious, quality food and will greet you with a smile and share enthusiastic, intimate knowledge of their wares. All this in a warm, color-filled greenhouse will lift the winter doldrums and make shopping fun!

Resolve to Eat Healthy in 2015

Ask ten people what healthy eating means to them, and you'll likely get ten different answers. But they may agree on a few simple things, such as avoiding fat, sugar, and processed foods. Farmers' markets are an excellent way to get on the path to healthier eating, by offering a variety of vegetables and fruits, pasture-raised meat, and minimally-processed meals. And by buying local, you know that the food you're eating comes from trusted sources a short drive away. Visit us from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Cole Gardens in Concord and get on track in 2014.

Merry Christmas from the Market!

From our vendors and the staff at Cole Gardens, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas! The market is indeed open today, so come out and stock up on fresh produce, baked goods, meats, cheese, and even frozen items to keep on hand during the busy holiday week. There's no market next week, so we'll see you in January!

Turnips, Beets, and Parsnips

Turnips, beets, and parsnips are some of the "official" vegetables of the month of December. And lucky for you, the Winter Farmers' Market is a great place to buy them. These veggies are perfect for stews, soups, and the New England boiled dinner, and are just some of the produce available at the market. Top it off with some treats from our bakers and you have the perfect New Hampshire meal!

Our Final Market Day of the Season

It's been a banner season at the Concord Winter Farmers' Market! We've been excited to see larger and larger attendance each week as people discover the wonderful array of fresh and local goods offered, as well as the convenience and beauty of our location. Our vendors represent the small farms and food artisans of New Hampshire who are proud to provide sustainably-raised, high-quality, and healthful products. As we end the winter market season, we thank you for your support, and invite you to continue buying local at the summer market on Capitol Street in Concord.

April 5th

If you've been coming to the market all winter, you know that this is one of the best places to get fresh, local produce, meats and seafood, and dairy products. Did you also know that there are wonderful treats for our four-legged friends, artisanal coffees and nuts, sauces, honey, and even goat-milk soaps and lotions? There truly is something for everyone at the Concord Winter Farmers' Market - your full shopping bag is a great way to support our local farmers and artisans!

March Goes Out Like a Lamb

The Old Farmer's Almanac is prognosticating a rainy but mild week coming up. We'll take the liquid sunshine, and wish our farmers well as we know they are preparing for a new season of growing delicious, high-quality food. Come visit us at our greenhouse and take in the sights, smells, and excitement of the market; you'll forget about the rain while you're here, and will be inspired to experience the healthy and locally-produced foods offered by nearly 30 vendors.
