Saturday morning, May 21st was the beginning of the active season here in Sandwich. The first outdoor Farmers Market of 2016 took place in the Corner House Inn parking lot. Across the street the Sandwich Home Industries opened for the season, and around the corner the Library held a plant and bake sale.
The Farmers Market was well attended by both vendors and buyers. In addition to vegetables for eating and planting, here were lots of marvelous baked goods, local eggs, handcrafted soaps and body care products, yarns and spinning supplies, artwork and other handmade items, locally roasted coffee, maple syrup, jams and jellies, bags and baguettes... the list goes on.
The Sandwich Home Industries, Sandwich's historic craft store, now part of the League of NH Craftsmen, is looking beautiful inside and out, all ready for the new season. Inside it's full of stellar handmade items of all kinds. Check out the awesome chicken pillows!
Around the corner the Samuel Wentworth Library offered an outdoor plant sale and an indoor bake sale. It was impossible to resist the profusion of treats! What an abundance of offerings in our little town. And it will only get better as the summer progresses. Just wait until next week when the new coffee shop, Village Green Café, opens its doors. More news on that coming soon.

Those who visit Sandwich, NH, often find themselves planning to return. Some even return here to live. What makes Sandwich such a prized destination? An invigorating atmosphere, friendly people and quiet streets. Clear waters and scenic views in the White Mountains. Plenty to see and do embedded in the vibrant spirit of an historic New England town. I am grateful to be part of this exceptional community.
