It’s finally the time of year when we can slide on our Flip Flops and go for a walk around the neighborhood. Festivals and Fairs are popping up everywhere, and Flea and Farmer’s Markets are plentiful. Manchester is no exception to this, we couldn’t be more excited for our Community Market to start next week on Thursday, June 20th!
Instead of #FoodieFriday, I’m deeming today #FarmersFriday so I can outline the vendors and their products at the 2019 Manchester Community Market.
Starting on Thursday, June 20th, the Intown Manchester Community Market will take place every Thursday through the end of September. The hours are 3:00-6:30 p.m. at Stanton Plaza, outside the Double Tree Hotel in Manchester. Don’t worry about parking, we have you covered! Get a ticket from the Center For New Hampshire parking garage and bring it to a tent at the market to get FREE 2 hour parking while you enjoy everything we have to offer.
Here are your 2019 Intown Manchester Community Market Vendors:
Berkshire Sweet Gold Maple Farm will be selling their delicious, authentic New England maple syrup for everyone’s pleasure. Based in the highlands of the Berkshires, this is as authentic as maple syrup can get. There is no better compliment to pancakes (or waffles if you want to go that route) as maple syrup, I don’t care what anyone says.
Fresh Start Farms will be adding some fruits and vegetables to the market mix with their delicious looking crop! This is what I look forward to at every market, everything is so fresh and wonderful. Also, don’t be afraid to speak with everyone and learn more about their businesses- Fresh Start Farms is a refugee and immigrant farmer collective.
I am really excited for the DJ’s Pure Natural Honey samples that will be available. Those will probably lead to many purchases over the June-September Thursdays, honey to me is like salt to other people; I’m pretty sure I could put it on or in anything.
Looking for more organic fruit and veggies? Great! Gate City Farm will also be at this year’s market with a huge variety of different greens and veggies to make your choice of what to get ever harder than it was before. They are all about helping the community find a way to become more sustainable and helping local families get local produce at home.
Woodman’s Artisan Bakery is going to be joining us at the market this year! Fresh baked breads and other goodies will be populating their booth. Just the smell of this place alone is going to persuade you that it’s something you need to have. From Olive bread to croissants and pretzels, Woodman’s has you covered.
Also coming to the Community Market are Auntie’s Custom Crafts, He-Be G-Bees, Kiss the Cook, and Three Daughter’s Jewelry and Gifts. Each of these places has so many specialty items for you to bring home- Auntie’s even has specialty corn hole bags so you can complete your set for this summer. Kiss the cook will take care of dinner for you, bring home a delicious variety of mac and cheese! He Be G-Bees will provide you with eco-friendly products from flea and tick spray for your pets to sensory sensitive sunscreen. All of their products are organic and sustainably harvested. Three Daughter’s Jewelry and Gifts will give you a wealth of things to choose from for any gift giving events or even just to spruce up your own look.
There will also be guest vendors who may not be there every week, but will definitely be a stop to look forward to on your shopping spree. The include The Smoothie Bus, hit them up first to get your delicious smoothie to enjoy while you walk, Forking Awesome Foodtruck, so when you get hungry from the appetite you worked up walking around you can grab a delicious taco, and Effin Sauces co. to add to the ever growing hot sauce collection.
SNAP Outreach will also be available at the Intown Manchester Community Market, so be sure to visit that tent if you need to or if you have any questions! Most vendors will be accepting multiple forms of payment, SNAP, Cash, or Credit. We can’t wait to see you at this year’s market!
