Market Research
Your farmers market guide

No matter what day of the week it is, there’s a farmers market going on somewhere near you. We talk to the experts about this year’s harvest and when to look for your favorite farmers market items. Have you ever considered taking your own produce to market? We have a discussion with someone who’s done it. Since strawberries are one of the current market delights, we look a little more at these summer sweets. And, for the times you want to go straight to the source, we have a list of places where you can pick your own berries.

Time to hit the market.

Andy’s Summer Playhouse in Wilton will be celebrating its 40th year this season.

In the summer of 1971, as the voting age was being lowered to 18 and China was being admitted into the U.N., Margaret Sawyer and William (Bill) Williams, two teachers at Mascenic Regional School, opened a summer theater in Mason to encourage youth in the performing arts. They named this summer playhouse after beloved Mason resident named C.W. Anderson, affectionately known as “Andy.”

LONGSHOTS: And baseball season finally kicks off
by Dave Long

We’ve been vacationing of sorts for the last month writing about the Celtics’ run in the NBA playoffs. And while we were doing that, a lot of stuff was piling up, mostly from the most under-the-radar beginning to the local baseball season since at least before the Duquette administration was in charge. So in an attempt to catch up, here’s a quick take on things that have been taking place while hoops was the center of my attention.

PEOPLE: Climb every mountain…
Both real and metaphorical
By Jeff Mucciarone jmucciarone@hippopress.com

Keene residents Nancy Sporborg and Pat Piper, both in their 50s, embarked on a journey that took them up and down each of New England’s 67 4,000-foot mountains. Their website, www.its-not-about-the-hike.com, details each hike. They’ve done presentations about their hiking for a variety of audiences, including one in Concord recently. They try to address the mountains in everyone’s life.

TECHIE: Social media anxiety
How to fight Facebook Fatigue
By John “jaQ” Andrews  jandrews@hippopress.com

I haven’t been to Facebook in over a week.

Do we live in an age in which that admission is shocking? Like “I haven’t called my mom in a week” or “I haven’t brushed my teeth in a week”?
