Being something of a farming community, Concord doesn't have regular farmers markets. So when there is one, it's kind of a big deal.
And they do it about once a year at "Ag Day," an annual farmers market in which a dozen-plus local growers get together in Concord Center.
Watch the video above for a sampling of what Ag Day has to offer -- fresh produce, local farmers, a putting green, music and more.
The list of participating vendors included Colonial Gardens, Verrill Farm, Hutchins Farm, Brigham Farm and Greenhouses, Scimone Farm, Macone Farm, Millbrook Farm, Kenney Farm, First Root Farm, Walden Bros., Gaining Ground, Lucky Rooster Farm, Pastor Blacksmith Farm, Pete and Jen's Backyard Birds, Concord Land Conservation Trust and more.
Also coming soon is the fifth Stone Soup Dinner, a community dinner featuring Concord-grown produce prepared by Concord chefs.
This year's Stone Soup Dinner will be held Sunday, Sept. 30 at Verrill Farm -- 4 p.m. for drinks and appetizers, 5 p.m. for dinner. Tickets are $40 per person, on sale now at The Concord Cheese Shop, Verrill Farm and Debra’s Natural Gourmet.
The Stone Soup Dinner has its own board and operates independently, with various farms and food establishments of Concord donating their time, energy, and fresh produce to this event. All profits from the sale of tickets go to help young farmers. The dinner made three “Plant a Farmer” grants in 2011, and three more in 2012 to help new farmers in Town.
