Stopping at Farmers’ Markets was one of the recurring themes of this summer’s road trip through the northeastern US. From smaller ones like that of Bristol, Vermont to larger ones in the likes of Brattleboro, VT, the local farmer’s market is a great place to get local fresh produce and baked goods while also getting a chance to check out local crafts and sometimes even music. A stop at the farmer’s market is a quick and easy way to get a sneak peek into the regional culture that makes a place unique. And you’re helping to support local farmers, which is a good thing.
Hanover, located in the Connecticut River Valley of New Hampshire, brings in vendors from both Vermont and New Hampshire. It was August when we stopped by and there were plenty of tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, and yellow squash for sale as well as well a variety of boutique cheeses, maple syrup, and fresh bread. Here we stocked up for our hiking trip in the White Mountains.
If you go: The Hanover Farmers Market runs Wednesday afternoons from 3:00pm – 6:00pm on ‘The Green’ in Hanover, from June 1 – October 12.
