If you have not already discovered the Tilton Winter Farmers Market, you really should. There are over 40 vendors there every Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 to 2:00, including Hermit Woods Winery every Sunday. There is so much wonderful, fresh, often organic food available it would take too long for me to share everything. Just visit their website to see all the different vendors, or even better, visit the market.

However, I did want to mention one terrific discovery, fresh, locally grown organic mushrooms from the New Hampshire Mushroom Company. I have never seen such a wonderful array of fresh mushrooms. You can learn all about them by following this link: www.nhmushrooms.com.   They were recently featured on New Hampshire Chronicle,  check out their video here.

If you like mushroom soup, I recently discovered a wonderful recipe that we make every week now that we have such a wonderful supply of mushrooms:
