    With Gratitude for a Wonderful Season

    This week, we close the season on our SGA farmers’ markets. We are so grateful for the support of the community that makes it possible for our markets – and members – to thrive here on the seacoast. We offered 90 farmers’ markets this year in four different locations, bringing the community together with our members to be part of the strong, constantly growing local food system.

    Seventy-four SGA members (and a multitude of guest vendors) thank you for coming to market!

    Smash a Pumpkin – Win a prize

     

    Pumpkin Smash at the Portsmouth Farmers Market
    A crowd gathers to cheer on a young pumpkin smasher

    Get ready, ’cause this Saturday is the annual Pumpkin Smash at the Portsmouth Farmers’ Market!

    Every year, the Pumpkin Smash consumes a quadrant of the Farmers’ Market with squash pummeling and raucous destruction, all in the name of Halloween fun.

    This highly interactive fundraiser supports the Portsmouth Halloween Parade. For a $5 donation, smashers can choose their pumpkin and their weapon and give it their best shot. Successful smashers get their pick from the prize table.

    Testing the effectiveness of the wooden hammer
    Here we see the stunning effectiveness of the wooden hammer, a fine choice from the smashing arsenal that includes assorted sized mallets and bats.

    Pumpkins: before and after

    Check out the PHP Facebook page for photos and be sure to post pics on Saturday if you’re smashing. We’ll be posting them too on the Portsmouth Farmers’ Market Facebook page.

    prize goggles
    To the victor goes – well, for this victor, a fine pair of hypnotizing goggles. The spoils go back to the farm to feed the pigs.

     

    Next Week – Last market days of the season

    For continuing Halloween fun, come to our Halloween Market in Exeter next Thursday, October 30th. It’s the final Exeter Farmers’ Market of the season and costumes are definitely encouraged.

    The final Portsmouth Farmers’ Market closes out the season next Saturday, November 1st. Can you believe it? One more week to take advantage of the open air markets and stock up!

    Have a great week & we’ll see you at market!
