The 2021 Season Kicks off June 12th
10am-1pm on the Town Common

Courtesy of Jacki Filiault and Allison Vermette: We are so excited to see everyone and to enjoy wonderful local vendors and musicians every Saturday. We have many returning vendors from last season, returning vendors who took the challenging 2020 season off, and brand-new local vendors!

Returning to the market are KC’s Enchanted Cottage with her amazing fairy garden kits and home & garden décor, Karen’s Touch with her beautiful unique hand-crafted jewelry, and Buddie Sweaters with her incredible sweaters for kids & adults.

New vendors include High Performance Organics with a range of sea moss products: teas, supplements, gels, fruit beverages, and more. The Red Barn Wreaths will be a new part time vendor this year with beautiful handmade, one-of-a-kind wreaths. Also new this year is Coyote’s Kitchen with vegan meats, pre-baked pizza crusts, and pizza crust kits.

We are pleased to have another amazing summer of musicians lined up and

Brewing in NH: An Informal History of Beer in the Granite State

from Colonial Times to the Present

Thursday May 20th at 7:00pm

Presented by Glenn Kloblock
Sponsored by New Hampshire Humanities

Glenn Knoblock explores the fascinating history of New Hampshire’s beer and ale brewing industry from Colonial days, when it was home- and tavern-based, to today’s modern breweries and brew pubs. Unusual and rare photos and advertisements document this changing industry and the state’s earliest brewers, including the renowned Frank Jones. A number of lesser-known brewers and breweries that operated in the state are also discussed, including the only brewery owned and operated by a woman before the modern era. Illustrations present evidence of society’s changing attitudes towards beer and alcohol consumption over the years. Whether you’re a beer connoisseur or a “tea-totaler”, this lecture will be enjoyed by adults of all ages.

This event will be held via zoom, please register here if interested
