With the spring just beginning (okay, almost!), lots has been happening over here at Fresh Start as we transition from winter to spring and summer seasons.

We appreciate you being part of this community. You make it possible for our work to support New American farmers, the local food system, and increased access to healthy food in NH.

New mural at the Fresh Start Market on Spruce!

Artwork by Jyl Dittbenner and Rachel Litzinger 

This is Jyl’s 3rd mural for Fresh Start Farms that stretches from the front of the store and wraps back towards our packing kitchen. We are honored to have her artwork add color and life to our space. We hope that you enjoy it as much as we do when you come by to pick up your FarmShare or groceries. 

Mobile Market

Finished winter markets this week!

3 months of markets, 3 communities served

Our Mobile Market is aimed at increasing access to affordable, fresh foods in the Manchester and Concord areas. 

The market eliminates the commute to the grocery store, offers 50% off for SNAP/EBT customers, plus hands out coupons for free produce courtesy of a donation made by Stonyfield.

This winter the market visited 3 apartment complexes in January, February, and March. Residents shopped at the market as well as signed up for weekly deliveries of produce boxes on the weeks in between the markets.

From 2023 to 2024, the program tripled the number of winter markets it was able to serve and quadrupled the number of veggie boxes! Here are more stats for 2024!
