It’s finally here–the opening day for the Manchester Farmers Market! Join Mayor Ted Gatsas for a ribbon and cake cutting ceremony today, Thursday, June 18th at 2:45pm! The market will run from 3:00pm-6:30pm on Concord Street next to Victory Park!!
One of the gems of TD Bank Summer Fest, the Manchester Farmers Market ” is a unique and exciting community event. Every Thursday, from June through October, over 25 vendors bring the very best New Hampshire produce, meat, cut flowers, baked goods, specialty foods, certified organic products, and other unique products to the heart of Manchester.” Even after working in Manchester for years, I never quite made it to the Farmers Market until last Summer…shame on me! I am excited to return out later today and stock up on delicious, local goods!
Check out these neat throwbacks to market days of Manchester’s past I found in the Manchester Historic Association’s archives! Taken in 1918, these pictures show “The Public Market on Concord Common, also known as Victory Park.”
The first Throwback Thursday post I ever did was also about the Farmers Market! It definitely didn’t go back nearly 100 years, but it also was a great snapshot of a wonderful community event. See that post here.
