Manchester Farmers Market
Whether it’s just-picked produce, yummy baked goods, melt-in-your-mouth meats and cheeses or unique crafts and beauty products you’re after, you’ll find them—and lots more—when the Manchester Farmers Market opens for its 19th season on Thursday, May 23, 2019 from 3 to 6 p.m. in Adams Park, located at the corner of Main Street and Center Hill Road in Manchester Center.
Always a favorite with locals and tourists alike, this year’s market will run from May 23 through Oct. 3 every Thursday, rain or shine, from 3 to 6 p.m. in Adams Park. As a weekday market, there is ample parking in the Adams Park lot, at the Gringo Jack’s lot across the street and on surrounding streets.
The Manchester Farmers Market accepts credit and debit cards, EBT and Farm to Family coupons. Adams Park is a smoke- and tobacco-free park and leashed dogs are welcome!
The Manchester Farmers Market is producer-only, meaning that every one of the more than 30 vendors must have had a direct hand in making the food or crafts they sell. The market will also feature outstanding live music each week, starting with JM Kelley on opening day.
The market is also a great family destination, known for its special kids’ programs. Art Farm, a supervised tent where children make free agriculture-inspired crafts will run from June 27 through Aug. 29. Another favorite is PoP Club, which stands for Power of Produce. Each week during July, kids ages 5-12 receive a free coupon worth $2 to use at any booth.
The ever-popular Kids’ Market Day, will let budding young entrepreneurs sell their homemade treats, crafts or fresh produce on Aug. 15.
