We’ve been working hard for our market goers to grow the Nashua Farmers Market, and it sure has paid off. We hope you are looking forward to an excellent 2017 market season! The growing market now operates on The Main Street Bridge, and in Parc de Renaissance along Water Street, and features over 30 vendors!
Now Offering SNAP/EBT
We are also very pleased to accept SNAP/EBT payment at our Sunday market, offering Granite State Market Match (GSMM)! The GSSM program launched at the Nashua Farmers Market in 2016. The program is conducted with support from the NH Food Bank, Leadership Greater Nashua, the Nashua Regional Planning Commission, Wholesome Wave, and private donors. With GSMM, for each $1 in SNAP/EBT expended, we will match it with credit toward $1 of fresh fruits and veggies! At this time, there is no maximum, expenditure for our SNAP/EBT customers.
We are very excited to be a part of making more fresh nutritious and local foods available to all, and hope to participate in the program again in our 2017 season! Please note, the Wednesday market does not feature an EBT card reader at this time. However, tokens obtained at the Sunday market can be used on Wednesdays.

Enjoy cooking with the seasons? Take pride in your relationship with the folks who’ve grown your food? Does the idea of a bumper crop bonus tickle your fancy?

Interested in Becoming A Vendor?
Great American Downtown is seeking additional vendor applicants for the 2017 market season. Please note that priority will be given to vendors from this past season, and we may need to prioritize additional vendor selection to provide a balance and variety of market goods for market goers. In addition to locally grown and prepared food vendors, Great American Downtown welcomes artists, skilled crafters, and area non profits. To request an application, please contact market manager, Paul Shea here.
Want to play the market?
The Nashua Farmers Market loves to host area musicians of all skill levels, to perform for market goers throughout the season. We will provide shelter from sun/light rain, a designated space, access to power, as well as access to a street piano which resides in Bicentennial Park throughout the season. We will also feature performers in our weekly e-newsletter, The Downtowner, which goes out to over 4,500 people each week. Want to play the market? Drop our Arts Coordinator, Ben, a line here.
