The beautiful community of Portsmouth, New Hampshire has so much to offer. Local restaurants, craft breweries, and their welcoming energy are just some of our favorites. But what really sets Portsmouth apart is their farmers’ market, a collection of some of the best, freshest local vendors.
The Portsmouth Farmers’ Market is held from May to November and has a wide array of seasonal and year-round products. Rain or shine, a network of local vendors can be found from 8am-1pm on Saturdays. The market features fresh and locally-sourced meats, delicious desserts, just-picked fruits and veggies, and more.
Whether you want to grab an empanada to snack on or are getting all the ingredients you need for your family’s dinners this week, the Portsmouth Farmers’ Market is a must-see.
Let’s highlight some of our favorite things about this community market!
While farmers’ markets aren’t usually the first place people turn to for entertainment, the Portsmouth Farmers’ Market changes that! They have performances from local bands such as The Bog Standard, Bowwow Bones, Barker’s Farm, and more. You can find the whole schedule and lineup here.

There’s nothing quite like the taste of fresh milk or cheese, and the Portsmouth Farmers’ Market delivers on this deliciousness! One of their vendors, Bell & Goose Cheese Co., shares their freshly made cheese curds, goat cheese, and much, much more. We know what we’re going to be taking home next time we visit!
The Portsmouth Farmers’ Market has so much to offer for the sweet tooth in your family! There’s 45 Market Street Bakery and Cafe, a small business that sells beautiful breads and pastries. There’s Toni’s Donuts, where a family works hard to craft delicious desserts. And of course, there’s Figtree Kitchen, which offers delicious and unique foods carefully prepared with local ingredients. Grab a treat, you deserve it!
You can’t have a farmers’ market without festive bouquets, and the Portsmouth Farmers’ Market has a wide array to choose from! There are sunflowers, succulents, peonies, daisies, and other seasonal picks. One of their regular vendors, White Cedar Farm, provides beautiful bouquets and produce. As they like to say on their Facebook page, they deliver “eggs, lamb, goat, whole hog sausage, spray-free veggies, flowers, and smiles”!
Fresh Fruits and Vegetables
As fall approaches, we are so excited about the seasonal picks at the Portsmouth Farmers’ Market! We dream of fresh cocktails made with Green Hope Vodka and locally sourced cranberries, pomegranates, and maybe even a pumpkin or two (that one might need some experimenting!). So many seasonal vodka infusions, so little time!
We believe in shopping local and supporting the small businesses that make up Portsmouth and other wonderful communities. Have you stopped by the Portsmouth Farmers’ Market? What was your favorite pick?
