Greens, Crackers and Talk of Big Things

With just six weeks to go before the end of the Tilton Winter Farmers’ Market’s stellar first season, vendors just keep on amazing us with their creativity and bounty.

This week, veggie-loving shoppers will find more greens than ever. Surowiec Farm of Sanbornton will bring a generous supply of their very popular cooking greens (great raw, too). The mix is chock full of succculent asian greens, baby chard, tender young red kale, and tasty spinach. They’ll also offer bags of spicy arugula and crunchy broccoli raab! Surowiec Farm’s delicious and colorful, crisp and uber-fresh mescun mix will satisfy your salad dreams for the week ahead. Once again, they’ll bring bunched kale, but get to the market early if that’s on your list.

Craquelins Artisinal Flatbread Crisps will be back again this week, offering delicious, handmade crackers to pair beautifully with wine, cheese, salads, soups, hummus, spreads and dips.
