Nashua’s Downtown Farmers' Market opens Sunday
On Sunday, an estimated 300 people will take advantage of fresh produce, meats and eggs being offered at the weekly farmers’ market, which will be held each Sunday from now until October at the Main Street Bridge.
“A lot of people already come downtown on Sundays, so we are hoping to draw an even bigger crowd and help out some of the downtown businesses as well,” said Cady.
New this year to the market is Candia Vineyards, which Cady expects will be a strong addition to the offerings.
“We are going to have strawberries, greens and turnips this week,” said Cady. “We are running about two weeks behind on the growing season because of the rain and not enough sun, but we are hoping it will get better.”
“This should be one-stop shopping for many people,” she said of the market, explaining Kelly Corner Farm will be on hand offering a variety of meats.
Simply Delish will have breads and salads, Nutfield Soapworks will be offering unique handmade soaps and lipbalms, and KiKi’s Ice Cream and Sorbet will handle the treats.
In the past, there have also been Friday afternoon farmers’ markets in front of Nashua City Hall, but that practice was discontinued last year. Cady said the City Hall farmers’ markets are not expected to resume.
