Autumn Celebration October 1-2
Hope you can join us for the Weekend!
More than a Market!
Music, Artisan Demonstrations, History and more. . .
Rain or Shine
10 am - 3:30 pm
This market has turned into an annual tradition in our area. Over 40 vendors will be joining us, you'll be able to find delightful handmade items along with local businesses with their products: Alpaca Wool to Zelda's Piccallili Relish. Check out our market page to see who's coming. You can also check the webpage during the upcoming holiday season to contact the vendors or locate them at area holiday craft fairs.
The market is split between three locations. Everything is just a short walk away (literally a stone's throw . . . and I can't throw stones that far)! Events and Vendors will be located at the Sugar Hill Meetinghouse, the Carolina Crapo Memorial Building, the Sugar Hill Museum, and we hope you'll pop into Harman's, too! There is plenty of parking in the field behind the meetinghouse and plenty of handicapped parking.
Market Munching: from Harman's Cheese to homemade Chili at the Museum, Cider Donuts from the Cider House Cafe at Windy Ridge Apple Orchard, along with fresh apples from the orchard. I'm going to get up early both mornings to pick up freshly-made donuts. Farm to Fire Pizza is bringing their portable brick oven to make hot pizzas for you all weekend.
We are also thrilled that White Mountain Gourmet Coffee is coming again this year and will offer FREE cups of COFFEE to everyone at the market. And yes, they are bringing their Espresso Machine again - so they will be offering along with the regular coffee - lattes, espressos, and cappaccinos! Because White Mountain Gourmet Coffee is coming with all the extras . . . they will have a donation bucket set up for you so you can offer a little "thank you".
A BIG thank you for Hatchland Farm for donating the Milk and Half & Half for this Coffee event. If you haven't had a chance, check out their store in North Haverhill.

Saturday and Sunday: NH History through 7 Generations of Family. Sara Boothman Glines creates hand-crafted wooden figures based on seven generations of her family's history in northern New Hampshire. The figurines represent a moment in time of a real person in the Boothman Sisters' family. Hear her New Hampshire stories and personalities of farmers, woodsmen, homemakers, hotel proprietors, carpenters, and photographers. Each of her figurines is complete with the tools of his or her trade from miniature snowshoes to a miniature basket. Did you know that an iris stem can be turned into a fishing rod? Or perhaps you would like to know the secret to white laundry? Listen to her stories and you realize how New Hampshire shaped her family and how her family helped shape NH. It is the story of a farm family that turned their farm into hotel which led to being a trail guide for tourists and building the first AMC hut . . . or the widow that had to return to the city mills and leave her children behind because there was no work for her in the north country. Visit her website to check out all the characters in her family!
