Farmers’ Market At The Gilmanton Year-Round Library


Wednesday afternoons, during the summer and fall, Amy Russell sets up her canopy and offers local produce for sale. Amy is responsible for organizing a Farmers’ Market for Gilmanton on the lawn at the Gilmanton Year-Round Library from noon to 4 pm on Wednesdays. The library is on Route 140 across from the Gilmanton School, between Gilmanton Corners and Gilmanton Iron Works.


The spacious lawn at the library has plenty of room for vendors and customers and for children to romp.  The library is open for browsing during the Farmers’ Market hours.


Amy welcomes other vendors - farmers, gardeners, bakers, artisans and crafts persons, even musicians - to join her to expand the market.  Of course, she  welcomes customers to take advantage of the fresh produce and other local goods available for sale.


Farmers and others interested in information about the Gilmanton Farmers’ Market should contact Amy Russell by email at [email protected] or by phone at 339-2634.

First Congregational Society In Gilmanton 


The First Congregational Society in Gilmanton will hold our next service on Sunday, July 21, 2013 at 4:00 pm at the Smith Meeting House on Meeting House Road in Gilmanton, NH.  The Reverend Sidney Lovett of Holderness, NH, will officiate and we will have Harriet Coupal as our organist.  Refreshments will be served after the service in the meeting room downstairs which is naturally air conditioned and there is plenty of parking.  Please come and bring your friends and family to this non-denominational service.


The Smith Meeting House is the oldest church in Gilmanton and is named in honor of the first minister to serve there, Reverend Isaac Smith. The First Congregational Society was formed in 1774 and maintains the Smith Meeting House and all four buildings on the grounds which are on the National Register of Historic Places. 


Restoration work has begun on the School House building, and two monuments between the church and the school were moved back to provide a larger space for tents and festivities.  The proceeds from Old Home Day go towards maintaining these historic buildings and grounds and your support is greatly appreciated.
