Tilton Winter Farmers Market 01-21-2012 (102)

Have you heard the buzz? Things are happening at the Tilton Winter Farmers’ Market. Vendors are getting even more creative and many are making news here in New Hampshire—and beyond. Not to mention, they’re bringing their best creations to market for you!

Tomorrow morning (Saturday), you can watch Irina Andreasen from Jehu Hot Sauce on WMUR, Cook’s Corner at 6:25 and 8:25 a.m. Matty Huckins from Huckins Farm got snowed out last weekend on her Cook’s Corner appearance; that segment will now air on March 14. Stay tuned for news on other Tilton Winter Farmers’ Market vendor appearances. We’ve got at least four left for this market season.

On the national front, Michele’s Sweet Shoppe (aka Michele’s Popcorn) is heading to the Oscars in a few weeks. Michele’s delicious popcorn was chosen to be part of the gift baskets for the stars! Fast forward through summer, and we’ll be seeing Valicenti Organica  featured on New Hampshire Public Television this Fall with New Hampshire’s own Marianne Esposito. Wow, do we have the best vendors, or what?

And rumor has it that Craquelins just may have some new flavors of artisan crackers coming down the pike!

Stop by the market this weekend—either Saturday or Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Be a part of the buzz! Don’t forget to bring a friend or two to support these great vendors. See you at the market!


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.

The Tilton area is abuzz with excitement about the Tilton Winter Farmers’ Market. Check out this article in the Citizen, for some great comments from shoppers, vendors and organizers. Averaging 1500 shoppers each Saturday, the market has people talking about what might be next for farm-fresh food venues in the area.

Good things ahead!
