You don’t find a lot of farming in downtown Concord these days. Perhaps it’s because pavement doesn’t make for the most fertile soil (by our estimation, at
least. We’re not farming scientists or anything). Or it could
be that tractors just don’t fit really well in the parking spaces on Main Street. Plus, they’re devilishly hard to parallel park. But the lack of active farming equipment doesn’t mean
there’s not a plethora of farm-fresh options at your fingertips, some of which you can obtain today in the comfort and
general grinosity of the Smile Building.

Johnson Golden Harvest, a year-round farmers market based in Hooksett, will be on the second floor of the Smile Building at 49 S. Main St. for
an indoor farmers market from 3 to 5 p.m. today, continuing its summertime appearances. Items include plenty of products that are native to New Hampshire, none of which are Sarah Silverman. But there are homemade breads and honey and a bunch of other local things
you can eat in your face. New Hampshire pasture-raised meats are available upon
request, as is assorted seafood, so make a wish list and chat
up a Johnson’s rep for next time.

For more information, email or call 496-0219.

From farm we take you to table, as Hermanos welcomes Rob Wolfe for a performance beginning tonight at 6:30. Wolfe and his jazz stylings are regulars at Hermanos, though you never see one without the other, strangely.
