Seacoasteatlocal - Kids' Day Winter Market March 28th 

 

Fun for the whole family at the Seacoast Eat Local Winter Farmers’ Market Kids’ Day!


Spring is just around the corner and the days are getting longer. The warmer days and sunny skies have many families yearning to break free from winter hibernation. Seacoast Eat Local has you covered with their first Kids’ Day at the Winter Farmers’ Market, Saturday March 28th from 10am-2pm at Exeter High School in Exeter, New Hampshire.


The Winter Farmers’ Markets are always open to everyone and Seacoast Eat Local welcomes young and old to meet the farmers that grow their food and find all the local ingredients they need to stock fridge, freezer and pantry. This year the folks at Seacoast Eat Local wanted to put a special focus on inviting children to the Farmers’ Market. It is a great way to learn more about where food comes from and how everyone is part of the local agricultural community! On top of the Kids’ Day activities it will also be Dairy Day at the Market with resources and information on local dairy options and benefits.


There will be several guest groups from the community running a variety of activities at market. These include the following:

  • Acorn School creating birdfeeders with local sunflower seed

  • Cooking Matters leading a veggie taste test & scavenger hunt

  • Exeter Historical Society offering coloring and local trivia

  • Seacoast Permaculture Group planting peas to take home, grow, & eat

  • Seacoast Eat Local making butter using raw cream from Brookford Farm

  • plus live & interactive music with Andrea Szirbik & Friends!


"The winter markets are a great opportunity to help connect kids with where our food comes from,’ said Kristen Deshaies, Seacoast Eat Local Board Member and mother of two. ‘It is wonderful to see kids of all ages interact with farmers, try new foods, and help make food choices for their families."


Be sure to mark your calendars and tell your friends about Kids’ Day at the market. Bring the whole family for a day of great food and fun. The market and activities are free and all are welcome. There are only two Winter Farmers’ Markets left this season, March 28 & April 11 at Exeter High School. Come out to stock your pantry and show your support for local farms and food!


The Seacoast Eat Local Winter Farmers’ Markets are community events, generously underwritten by Exeter Hospital, Revision Energy, Wentworth Greenhouses, and The Black Birch. Seacoast Eat Local connects people with sources of locally grown foods and advocates eating locally for the health of our environment, community, culture and economy.  Through advocacy, organizing and education, they work toward a sustainable local food system that meets the needs of both producers and consumers.  They organize winter farmers’ markets, produce Seacoast Harvest, sponsor workshops and events, and provide information through their email newsletter, blog, and website, www.seacoasteatlocal.org.
