Market Watch: Rochester Farmer’s Market

by Alex Hallowell

Yesterday, Meri and I swung by the Rochester Regional Farmer’s Market outside of Old Rochester Regional High School. We had some of the best weather this summer has yet offered, with a light breeze to cool the warm (though not hot) sun. As we chatted with readers, handing out copies of the Summer issue of edible South Shore, we got to chatting with market manager Janice, who has put together a truly spectacular market.

Only two years ago, she obtained the permit to hold the market. The first official market day coincided with the first day of summer, a good omen that has continued to aid in the success here in Rochester. With a quality and variety of vendors like this, the market is sure to become a fixture in the area.

How On Earth provided fresh-grilled pizzas, cooked over hot coals; Cervelli Farms was stocked with fresh produce and beautiful flowers, there were goodies for man’s best friend from Go Fetch! Treats, delicious apple cider doughnuts from the Great Cape Baking Company, and even grass-fed meats from J.H. Beaulieu Livestock and Produce Farm. For a full listing of vendors as well as weekly updates, visit the market’s blog here.
