PETERBOROUGH – The Fresh Chicks Outdoor Marketplace opens its fourth season on Monday, May 5, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Marketplace is set up on the grounds of the Monadnock Community Hospital, Old Street Road, and takes place every Monday from May until October.
Although not affiliated, the market aligns itself with the hospital’s mission of promoting and enhancing the quality of life for local communities. As a result, Monadnock Community Hospital was recognized nationally in the American Hospital Association’s Community Connections.
The market hosts a variety of local vendors and features fresh-picked fruit and produce, mushrooms, baked goods, lamb, pork, beef and chicken, coffee, eggs, cheese, milk, goat milk, ice cream, honey, maple syrup, jams and jellies, take-home prepared food items. Folks will also find annual and perennial plants/flowers and a wide variety of beautiful locally-made artisan crafts, such as jewelry, soaps and herbal products, repurposed glass, fiber, knitted, crocheted, alpaca, fabric and quilted articles, and ironworks. Gift certificates in various denominations are available.
This year, the market will again feature its weekly “Where Are The Chicks?” promotion. Find the pair of little felted handmade chicks and receive a $5 coupon to use at the market. There will also be ongoing raffles and weekly music.
In addition to regular vendors, the market welcomes guest vendors, nonprofit groups and small businesses. Each week produce and baked goods are donated to area shelters. The Info Center at the entrance to the market displays community advertising, flyers of local happenings, Monadnock Table and more.
If you would like to be a full- or part-time vendor, guest vendor, nonprofit or small business guest or have any questions about the Fresh Chicks Outdoor Marketplace, contact 924-1913 or 357-1849.
