Winter Farmers' Market Returning to Tilton

11/25/2012

The Tilton Winter Farmers' Market is pleased to announce that thanks to the generous support of the AutoServ Family of Dealerships, the Lakes Region will, for the second winter in a row, have a convenient location to pick up farm-fresh local food and homemade goodies.

Due to the success of last year's market, the Tilton Winter Farmers' Market will now be open two days a week.  Every Saturday and Sunday, from January through the end of March, the old Agway building, located at 67 East Main Street (Route 3) in Tilton, N.H., will be transformed into the Tilton Winter Farmers' Market. The location is conveniently located right off I-93 at exit 20, diagonally across the street from AutoServ of Tilton, with plenty of parking for everyone. Soon every Saturday and Sunday, you will be able to find market fresh food in the middle of winter.

The Tilton Winter Farmers' Market is sponsored by the AutoServ Family of Dealerships. AutoServ is a proud supporter of healthy eating and lifestyles. Dennis Gaudet, owner of AutoServ, knows the importance of fresh foods and healthy living.

"I am excited for the opportunity to once again sponsor the market and help bring fresh offerings to the community. In the summer there are many places to buy fresh foods, but the options dwindle during the winter months. Inside AutoServ Tilton, we opened the AutoCafe as a quick alternative for our employees, customers, and the general public to grab healthy breakfast and lunch offerings instead of fast food. In December we will be opening the AutoServ Fitness Center, so all of our employees have free access to healthy activity. It is important that healthy options are easily available, and the Tilton Winter Farmers' Market offers just that. The market also helps the community by giving vendors a local place to bring their goods to the public. We are very pleased to be able to once again support the market and the community."
 
Currently, plans are to have 45 vendors selling their goods, including organic produce and greens, locally raised meats, eggs, dairy, cheese, homemade breads and pastries, gourmet popcorn, tomatoes, garlic, fudge, apples, cider, local honey, granola, New Hampshire maple syrup, jams and jellies, coffee and teas, wine and beer, body care, herbal products, dog treats, composting worms, face-painting and live music.
