The Wolfeboro Area Farmers Market began in 2002 through the vision of local farmers and citizens who wanted to provide a central venue to sell directly to their neighborhood customers.
The market has, over the years, had several locations, including the front lawn of Carpenter School on Main Street, in front of the croquet court in Clark Plaza on Center Street, and behind the car wash off Pine Street. In 2009, with the help of G.A.L.A. (Global Awareness Local Action), the market moved to its location in Clark Park on the grounds of the Wolfeboro Historical Society on South Main Street.
Although the location has changed over the years, the support of local customers and citizens has not. As the number and variety of vendors has grown, so has awareness and support by locals and visitors in the Wolfeboro area. In addition, the popularity of our market and others in the area has encouraged local “agri-preneurs” — folks with a passion for growing or preparing local food for a local market and all of the hard work that entails.
The market supports many ways to ensure that all our customers have access to nutritious local food. The SNAP incentive programs we support at our market are: use of EBT cards to purchase SNAP eligible food, Granite State Market Match for fruits & vegetables, Food For All coupons from MWVEG, and Vouchers For Veterans.
Come and visit us every Thursday, rain or shine, May through October, to experience the local produce, meats, eggs, honey, maple syrup, preserves, flowers, baked goods, and more! While you’re there enjoy the music of local instrumentalists and visiting string bands, grab a bite to eat or drink or bring the kids to enjoy story hour with local librarians.
