TO ORDER EMAIL GILMANTONSOWN@GMAIL.COM by 9:00 A.M. TUES 5/14
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:
Gilmanton’s Own Market works with the New Hampshire Seafood Cooperative to bring you the freshest fish possible every week. There are always 2 kinds of fish: Haddock and the Fish of the Week. The fish is packed in 1-pound filets and costs $13 a pound.
As soon as we find out on Monday morning what the fish of the week will be we post that on Facebook and on the Gilmanton’s Own Market website. You have until Tuesday morning, 9:00 a.m. to place your order. Send an email to email@example.com telling us how many pounds of each kind of fish you want and tell us your name and phone number. We then place our collective order.
The fish is available for pickup and payment in the Market on Thursdays during our regular hours: 1-5 pm. If you do not pick it up then we freeze it and you can pick it up Saturday or Sunday. If you do not pick it up by 2:00 Sunday we will sell it first come, first served.
Description and cooking tips: Atlantic Pollack: Atlantic pollock, a member of the cod family, has firm and white flesh and a sweet, delicate flavor. It is low in saturated fat and is an excellent source of protein, vitamin B12, phosphorus, and selenium. Haddock: A member of the cod family. Its meat is lean and white; it is less firm than cod and flakes beautifully when cooked. Haddock is excellent baked, broiled, poached, or used in chowders and stews. Traditionally, New Englanders fry haddock fillets or bake them whole with a breadcrumb and spice stuffing. Lots of great recipes for both kinds of fish on line.
What’s New at Gilmanton’s Own Market?
The VEGETABLES change with the seasons: Now we have
Spinach: Remember — this grows only in spring. Once it is consistently hot, it’s done for the year.
Microgreens: The baby leaves of many different plants — lettuces, other greens, radishes, beets, etc. Right now we have radish microgreens. Nice radishy kick to put in a salad, top a burger, throw on a pizza fresh out of the oven, make crostini (toasted bread from the Market topped with goat cheese from the Market topped with microgreens). Delicious and really healthy.
Pea Greens: The baby leaves and tendrils of peas. If you like peas, you’ll like their greens. Salads, stir-fries, in sandwiches, on pizza.
Swiss chard: leafy vegetable from the beet family, kind of a cross between spinach and kale in taste; more like spinach when cooked. Use the leaves and stalks. You’ll find lots of great recipes on line for Swiss chard as a side dish. Easy: just saute it, maybe with a little garlic. Delicious. And super healthy.
Lettuce mix: You know what to do with this.
PLANT STARTS: It’s spring so we are beginning to carry a range of plant starts. Now mostly herbs and hardy plants (and some heirloom tomatoes so you can have your pick). More when we think the frost is gone.
ARTISANAL GOODS AND ART WORKS: We have expanded our range of home-made, hand-made products made by wonderful local crafts people: Shop for yourself or for gifts! Among the wonderful things you will find: unique clothing; dolls; soaps and other body products; jewelry! And see the paintings by local artist Betty Mitchell!
The Gilmanton’s Own Market/ Four Corners Brick House Partnership
We are thrilled to be part of a great local partnership. We have great space with good, comfortable conditions for our produce and other goods and our shoppers! The
parking situation is excellent. And who doesn’t like wandering around the Four Corners Brick House? (If you haven’t been there … just wait!)
Although the Brick House antique business is open 10-5 Tuesdays thru Saturday
and noon to 4 on Sundays, our spring open hours are more limited. At other times, even when the Brick House is open, our door will be closed. Unfortunately, we just don’t have enough volunteers to keep the Market open longer hours.
As always, our products are all local, grown or produced in the Belknap/Merrimack
County area. During the spring you can expect to see great dairy products, meat, fresh bread and other baked goods, syrups, honeys, jams, mustards, soda, spices, soaps and other body products, clothing, and many other artisanal items. We will of course have great local produce as it comes into season, and later we will also have tomato and other seedlings for your garden. And we have fresh fish every week.
As always, you can pay with cash, credit, debit, and EBT.
We keep up to date news on Gilmanton’s Own Facebook page and here on our website,
We’re always looking for new local vendors.
If you are a Farmer or are thinking of going into Market Gardening this coming growing season and you grow in the nearby Belknap/Merrimack County region, please consider selling through Gilmanton’s Own Market.
