Since they won’t be running their outdoor mar- ket this year, LFP would like to recommend other organizations take on running an outdoor mar- ket.

NEW HAMPTON’S FARMERS MARKET opens to the public on June 26th at the New Hampton Historical Town- house!

 staple that caters to both locals and Saturday morning tourists. When asked what her favorite part about being a part of the farmers market was, Lamos an- swered “I like how we can help the small businesses and anyone who needs it.” People who get involved with the market make good connections, and continue to grow those connections while promoting their product. New Hampton’s market likes to live by the popular bumper sticker “Supporting Local Everything.” Lamos also told me that she loves the whole social aspect of it as well. “It’s a great outdoor place for people to come together and be fun and social with everyone from your community.” After taking a hit last year due to the pandemic with canceling all of their live music and struggling with social distancing, they’re ex- cited to get back to the fun this summer.
This year, New Hampton has six farms participating that
will provide in-season veggies, berries, apples, fresh local eggs, local raw milk, and much more! Alongside the farm-fresh delica- cies, people can look forward to handmade crafts, jewelry, wool, and handmade wooden items. There will also be live music every Saturday with local bands like Uncle Steve and Finn and White Steer! The New Hampton farmers market will run every Saturday starting from June 26th to October 9th from 10 AM to 1 PM. If you would like to reserve a booth, give them a call at 603- 254-5858.
