exeter market's last day - and the winter markets are coming!

Today is the last day for the Exeter farmers' market. We'll be stopping by to pick up potatoes (my latest obsession is mashed potatoes - I seem to need them as a side dish to most any meal the last couple weeks!!), onions, and hopefully some turnips or cauliflower.

Even though Exeter is ending, the Portsmouth market is still on through November 7. And then the Seacoast winter markets start up pretty quickly after that (November 21 is the first in Rollinsford).

In this past Saturday's pouring rain we happened to be driving by Northwood's "off season" market location on Route 4, so we stopped in - it was definitely worth the stop, as we got a dozen of the best eggs we've had all year, and some nice tomatoes. The next Northwood market is November 7 - and then there will be another on November 21. The market is held at the Masonic Lodge, next to the municipal lot at the traffic light where Routes 4, 202/9, and 43 come together.

Lots of great opportunities to buy fresh, local produce and other foods this Fall and Winter!!
