Wolfeboro Farmers Market Opening for Season Thursday

WOLFEBORO — The Wolfeboro Area Farmers Market will open for the 2014 summer season on Thursday, June 19. The market will be open every Thursday from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. through October 9 at Clark Park, 233 South Main Street, in Wolfeboro.

Board President Fred Martin expects the 2014 season to be the strongest season to date for the market, which was founded in 2002. "We'll have more than 25 vendors this year, and that's the largest number in 12 years," says Martin. "This season will feature the largest variety of vegetables and products we've ever offered." Market offerings include fresh vegetables, fruits, dairy products, cut flowers, meats, honey, herbal products, baked goods and more. "The board of directors works throughout the winter to select vendors that will offer a good mix of locally-produced products for the community. It's entirely possible for shoppers to do most of their weekly food shopping at the market, and many people do just that." Live music is provided by local musicians each week.

The Wolfeboro Area Farmers Market, a non-profit member organization, is governed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors and was founded in 2002 through the vision of local farmers and citizens who wanted to provide a central venue to sell directly to their neighborhood customers.

According to Martin, the popularity of the market has grown steadily since those early years, encouraging the proliferation of local "agri-preneurs," small producers who bring products to this and other area farmers markets. According to the New Hampshire Department of Agriculture, 54 farmers markets will be offered throughout the state this summer. "We're proud to be a part of this exciting and growing segment of the state's economy," said Martin.
