Market in full swing

Hope everyone had a great weekend with all of the great things going on in town like the garden workshop at the Hartland Community Garden, the market, and the Library's showing of Disney's Mulan all on Friday night, and of course the Jazz Fest on Saturday. 

Thanks to all those who stopped by the market.  I had a great time doing the "Dinner Demo" of Spring Greens Rolls.  I think all who tasted them can agree that they were really yummy, and best of all everyone got to make the rolls themselves.  The pea shoots and kale supplied by Oak Wood Farm were great fillings for the rolls and the fresh mint and basil from Contented Butterfly Farm added just the right flavoring.  We will be continuing to do Dinner Demos throughout the summer so don't worry if you missed this one, there will be more.

June has been a busy month but things are just getting going. Pretty soon our produce vendors will be coming to the market loaded will lots of field fresh veggies and fruits. Green Mountain Flour will also be bringing their pizza oven to market once summer really gets underway so keep your eyes out for announcements about that. Shae Leigh Country Canning will have homemade sorbet throughout the summer and delicious sweets and drinks. Not to mention all of the other great things vendors are bringing to market.

We are also planning special events at the market so get ready for a summer of fun, family, friends, and of course fresh produce at your local farmers' market.

Vendor Meeting a Success!

We had a great turnout for the Vendor meeting last Friday night.  The weather cooperated and we were able to meet outside on the Library Fields.  We even set up a tent.  It was my practice run for what I will be doing all summer, putting up tents every Friday afternoon for the market.

There were many familiar faces at the meeting.  I'm happy to announce that Brian Stroffolino from Oak Wood Farm and Jennifer Cary from Contented Butterfly Farm, both will be full season vendors this summer.  Welcome back to those two produce vendors.

There were also several new vendors in attendance  including Anelyce Forney, a baker making delicious treats, and yes, they are gluten free!  She will be attending the market a couple times a month so look for announcements for Batter Desserts and come try one of her mint chocolate chip or chocolate and peanut butter cupcakes.  My mouth is already watering.

It is hard to believe how quickly spring has flown by.  Summer is nearly hear and the first market of the season is less than a month away.  Yes, that's right, first market of the summer is in less than a month so mark your calendars.  I'll see you at the market.

The Hartland Farmers' Market is signing up vendors for this summer's market season.

2013 Vendor Applications and Market Rules are available for download under our Resources section.  Applications will also be available for pick up at the Hartland Four Corners Post Office and the Upper Valley Food Co-Op after Sat., April 27th.

            Spring has finally arrived in the Upper Valley.  These warmer days serve as a reminder that summer and the outdoor market season are just around the corner.  This year the Hartland Farmers’ Market, with renewed energy and fresh perspectives, plans to build on what we learned last summer to make 2013 the most successful market season yet.

I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new manager of the Hartland Farmers’ Market.  I am passionate about creating a market that showcases the skills and talents of our vendor community and serves as a venue to bring you together with your customers.  My priorities for the market this summer include: assembling a diverse group of vendors to attract more patrons and add value to the market, as well as increasing our web presence with a greater focus on our social media outlets.

Since taking on this position, I have spent much time reflecting on why vendors choose a farmers’ market to sell their products   It seems to me that the biggest appeal of a farmers market is not the profits for vendors, but the more intangible benefits.  Last summer, my family’s blueberry bushes produced what seemed like an endless amount of delicious fruit.  The berries piled up by the bucket and bagful.  Thus, I took my first venture into making jam so that this bounty would not go to waste.  Amazingly, my jam was a success.  I was proud of my new skill set yet what was more important was the satisfaction I felt by sharing my product with appreciative friends and family.

As individuals who have special skills and products to offer, I imagine that my story may resonate with vendors in some way.  They put considerable amounts of hard work, artistry, and dedication into their products and at a farmers’ market, share the fruits of their labor with appreciative customers through direct exchanges.

The list of vendors is beginning to fill out and I am excited to see how the market takes shape.  Please consider joining the Hartland Farmers’ Market for the summer season.  If there are any questions about this summer’s market or about the application please do not hesitate to contact me, I would be happy to hear from you.  

I look forward to meeting you this summer at the market!

                                            Yours Sincerely,

                                                                                        Sarah Sincerbeaux, Market Manager



Friday, March 22, 2013

Hartland Farmers Market is pleased to announce a new market manager for the 2013 season.  Sarah Sincerbeaux is an environmental studies graduate student at Antioch, who is very interested in farming and local food networks.  She has enjoyed visiting our market in previous seasons and looks forward to working on our upcoming season.
