Concord, NH — The Downtown Concord Winter Farmers’ Market (DCWFM) has transitioned to an online ordering model for the time being, for the safety of the vendors and our community. Every week, customers pre-order online and pick up their orders at 7 Eagle Square on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The online market at www.HarvestToMarket.com is open until 11:59 p.m. on Wednesdays, and customers can purchase items from multiple vendors, all in one order. Available products include fresh local produce, eggs, meats, mushrooms, breads and baked goods, coffees and teas, soaps, salves, and more.
Participating vendors include: Abbott Hill Creamery, Bee Fields Farm, Blakeney’s Bakery, Clayton’s Way Farm Soaps, Granite Ledge Coffee, Lindon Garlic Farm, Huckins Farm, Meadowview Farm, Mt. Dearborn Farm, New Hampshire Mushroom Company, Warner River Produce, and Work Song Farm.
Payments are collected at pickup in the form of cash, debit and credit, check, SNAP/EBT, tokens, and Veteran Value Bucks. Like with the summer farmers’ markets, SNAP/EBT customers can double their SNAP dollars, up to $20 per week, to buy fruits and vegetables, and veterans are eligible to receive $10 in “Vet Bucks” per month.
“This online ordering model is a great way for community members to continue to access local food and artisanal products and to support our local farmers while we work on an alternative, safer option for the indoor farmers’ market this winter,” says Steve Cook, DCWFM Assistant Market Manager.
Supporting local farmers and producers is important now more than ever, as their normal revenue streams — wholesales, fairs, in-person farmers markets, etc. — continue to be affected by the pandemic. Not only do New Hampshire’s farmers feed our communities, but they preserve and protect our land for future generations, too.
