Local Food: Scenes from a Winter Farmers’ Market

2.23.13 Winter Farmers' Market, Rollinsford

It was clear from a visit to our Winter Farmers’ Market in Rollinsford this past week-end that we’ve turned that corner in February when greenhouse greens begin to wake up — and what a joy they were to see, buy and cook with again! To see how we New Englanders eat locally during winter, here’s a glimpse of the market >

    What a delight to see! Love the venue, too – airy and light filled, all the better to see all those bright and glorious greens, vegetables, breads. Can’t wait for April, when our outdoor markets open!

      Hi Katrina! If you’d like to make a road trip, we’ll be back at this venue on March 23rd when I’ll be hosting an “Ask a Master Preserver” information table, definitely worth the drive!

  2. Loved the photo essay on the farmer’s market. That was certainly different from a Southern California farmer’s market this time of year. Sure, we have potatoes and garlic, but instead of hand-dyed yarn, wheat and locally raised pork, we have bison, fish, fresh strawberries, and citrus and greens galore. Bloom where you are planted and eat locally!

      Hi Lou! We have bison and seafood, but strawberries are still a couple of months away. As for the citrus, we certainly do miss it!

    Such a cutie violin player. You do have quite a variety of goods for this time of the year. Sure glad February is coming to an end, so looking forward to spring.

    What a large and interesting market! Lots of good things to be had there too and looks like lots of good visiting going on too.

      You’re right to notice that! It’s a place where we gather as a community, and since it was CSA Day at the market, there were also many farmers chatting with potential CSA members.

    Fabulous photos – it looks like a great market. Can I have a spinach, feta and olive tart please?

    You New Englanders eat quite well during winter! (Everything looks good but loved the cute little weirdly-shaped carrots most.) Were those red wheat I spied with my little eyes stored in glass jars? Another question: are you guys on Twitter & Pinterest? If so, where? ps we have a few nice farmers markets in NY too, thankfully.
