This summer, enjoy a stroll through the Farmers' Market of Keene. Try a sample of artisanal cheese or freshly baked bread and cool off with an iced tea or coffee. Enjoy the succulent crunch of fresh sugar snap peas and the sweetness of juicy summer berries. Mingle with your neighbors and friends, share conversation and stories, and make new connections. Make the market a family affair by participating in one of the on-going kid friendly activities.

The range of products at the Farmers’ Market of Keene is diverse and can meet most of your grocery needs. Vendors offer fresh fruits and vegetables, milk, meat, eggs, cheese, bread, and specialty products (chutney, granola, baked goods, coffee, etc). If you forget your cash or check book, utilize the market’s *NEW* credit, debit and EBT (food stamps) machine. Simply swipe your card at the market info booth for tokens that can be used like cash for market goods.

Be sure to visit the Farmers’ Market of Keene (Gilbo Ave, behind Margarita’s) Tuesdays and Saturdays from 9 am-2 pm.
