The Canterbury Community Farmers Market is ON!

YES, it will be damp.

YES, it will probably be MORE than damp!

And YES, we WILL be in the center on Wednesday, Sept. 30 from 4-6:30!!

It’s the LAST outdoor market of the season, so join us in the center to get your RAIN-WASHED veggies!

PUMPKINS? They don’t care if it’s pouring.

APPLES? Bring on the rain, they love it!

KALE and SQUASH? You’re gonna put them in the soup pot anyway, so who cares if they’re wet?

FLOWERS? Heck yes! They NEED the rain!

WE will be at the market, the VENDORS will be at the market, the FRUIT, VEGGIES, SYRUP, BREAD, EGGS, and CHEESE will be at the market, SOCKS and SOAP and JAMS and JELLY will be at the market. A whole lot more GOOD STUFF will be at the market!

The big question is, will YOU be at the market? 

We surely do hope so!!! :~)

NH Plein Air Painters

Wed., Sept. 23 — Our special guests bring ART to the mARkeT!

What is NHPleinAir? They are a dedicated group of artists “Painting Landscapes Everywhere In NH And In the Region.” Plein Air artists seek the quality of natural light and atmosphere outdoors. Their artwork is in direct response to the beauty they find in nature.

This Wednesday, some of the area’s most talented outdoor artists will bring their paint boxes and easels to the Canterbury Community Farmers Market, well known for its glowing piles of local fruits and vegetables, gleaming jars of jelly and jam, glistening eggs and leafy greens, as well as the beautiful white spire of the CUCC church and Historic Canterbury Town Hall. Will they paint a portrait of your prancing pup? A beautiful bouquet of fresh picked flowers? The colorful line of tents and people that make up every market? Come and see! The public will be able to join in the fun by watching individual artists work and moving from painter to painter throughout the market. Paintings may be available for sale at the end of the day (though they may still be a little wet!)

Wednesday’s Music will be by Canterbury’s own Tim Gurshin. For many years he has performed solo in New England, and also in Nashville at clubs such as The Bluebird Cafe and Gibson’s, along the way opening for musicians from Aztec Two-Step, Greg Brown to Rustic Overtones. In addition to his own songs, Tim’s live shows feature his own arrangements of classic acoustic music from Bob Dylan to Green Day.

—–>HEADS UP and FYI: Next Wednesday, Sept. 30, is the last outdoor market of the season! Come enjoy the “Fall & Fiber Frolic” event, and help us tuck the market away for the colder months to come. Be sure to bring extra bags to load up on root crops and veggies that are gooooood looooooong keepers!


Like it or not, winter IS coming, so…

…plan to STOCK UP at the last two outdoor markets!

Please think ahead and wash out those canning jars, buy a few extra packs of freezer bags and containers, or start squirreling away those old yogurt and parmesan cheese tubs. There are heaps, baskets, cartons, and coolers full of tomatoes, squash, onions, eggplants and more just waiting to be trucked home to you kitchen and transformed into winter eating deliciousness. There are also piles, heaps, and mountains of winter squash, potatoes, and carrots, all good keepers. And don’t forget the pumpkins!! Oh, and basil for pesto. And garlic, don’t forget the garlic! Wait, wait….you need to make applesauce, too. Boy, you are going to be BUSY…better get a move on!
