All the details about the upcoming Rockport Farmers Market are here on GMG! The market will be small but mighty, featuring some great Rockport and Cape Ann-based food producers. Word on the street is that Brothers’ Brew will be there with fresh doughnuts AND and espresso maker so you can have your morning caffeine while shopping for all sorts of homegrown goodness! The first week, June 22nd, coincides with Spiran Hall’s annual Midsummer Fair, also held in Harvery Park where the Farmers’ Market is located, so you can grab some pickled herring and other Scandinavian goodness along with your produce.
