All summer long, the market will be bringing food to community sites throughout Manchester, Nashua, and Concord each week. Check out the full schedule here

Autumn Explosion Cornmeal

Beautiful deep-colored cornmeal, from Tuckaway Farm, perfect for making cornbread, pancakes, muffins, and waffles.

Tuckaway Farm is an organic farm in Lee, NH and they grow and mill heritage corn varieties to create this incredible cornmeal. The corn is roasted before milling to enhance flavor and aroma. Tuckaway Farm was recently awarded a value-added product grant that will allow them to scale up their mill to make more grain products. Look forward to more grains coming soon!


The Crust and Crumb Bakery partners with local producers and growers to make amazing food from locally sourced ingredients. As the first Certified Local bakery in New Hampshire with The Farm to Restaurant Connection, everything is made from scratch and by hand.
