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 home-made 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 10 AM to 2 PM, from January through the end of March, the “old Agway building” at 67 East Main Street (Route 3) in Tilton will be transformed into the Tilton Winter Farmers Market, with market-fresh food in the middle of winter.
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 open the AutoServ Fitness Center so all 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, the Market expects 45 vendors selling organic produce and greens; locally-raised meats, eggs, dairy, and 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.
