Just in time for holiday food preparations, the 2013-2014 Tilton Winter Farmers’ Market will open Saturday, December 7 and Sunday, December 8, once again at the old Agway Building on Route 3 in Tilton. We’re looking forward to an exciting third year, and are grateful for this wonderful space, made available to us with the generous, ongoing support of AutoServ of Tilton. The market is conveniently located off I-93 at Exit 20. This season, the market will operate weekends from 10 a.m. To 2 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday, from December 7 to March 30.

A destination for food lovers from throughout the state and beyond, the market will again feature more than 45 vendors, offering the state’s finest fresh and locally-produced food products, along with carefully selected, agriculturally-based crafts. With such easy access to I-93, regular shoppers include out-of-state people traveling to New Hampshire vacation homes and weekend visitors to the Lakes Region, as well as the many, many local residents who support the market. The result? A colorful, bustling scene, every weekend day throughout the winter!

The market offers a wide range of locally-produced, farm-fresh and organic produce and greens, winter storage crops, meats, eggs, dairy, cheese, breads, pastries, gourmet popcorn, gluten-free products, vegan foods, tomatoes, garlic, mushrooms, veggie burgers, fudge, apples, cider, honey, granola, maple syrup, jams, jellies, freshly roasted coffee, teas, beer, wine, gourmet food items, body care products, information on composting worms, herbal products, dog treats and more.

2013 Market Set to Launch at Old Agway Building, Expanding to Include Saturday and Sunday

Brookford Farm Cheese at the Tilton Winter Farmers Market

The Tilton Winter Farmers’ Market is all set to launch another successful season, thanks to the generous support of the AutoServ Family of Dealerships. Lakes Region shoppers will again have a convenient location to pick up farm-fresh food and homemade goodies. The market will now be open two days a week, every Saturday and Sunday, January through the end of March. Two days a week!

The best news of all is that the market will, once again, be located at the “old Agway building,” located at 67 East Main Street (Route 3) in Tilton. The location is conveniently located right off I-93 at exit 20, diagonally across the street from AutoServ of Tilton, with plenty of parking for everyone. Airy and open, this venue easily handled weekly crowds of shoppers that exceeded 1200.

The Tilton Winter Farmers’ Market is sponsored by the AutoServ Family of Dealerships, a proud supporter of healthy eating and lifestyles. Dennis Gaudet, owner of AutoServ, knows the importance of fresh foods and healthy living. “I am excited for this opportunity to once again sponsor the market and help bring fresh offerings to the community. In the summer there are many places to buy fresh foods but the options dwindle during the winter months. It is important that healthy options are easily available, and the Tilton Winter Farmers’ Market offers just that. The market also helps the community by giving vendors a local place to bring their goods to the public. We are very pleased to be able to once again support the market and the community”

We’re planning a total of 45 vendors on each day. They’ll offer: organic produce and greens, meats, eggs, dairy, cheese, breads and pastries, gourmet popcorn, tomatoes, garlic, fudge, apples, cider, honey, granola, maple syrup, jams and jellies, coffee roasters and teas, body care, herbal products, dog treats, and composting worms.
