This Week Downtown: Free Ice Cream AND the Rockport Farmers Market. Yee Haw!

Thursday, June 26th at the Ice Cream Store on Bearskin Neck: Enjoy ice cream provided by the Ice Cream Store with all donations to benefit Rockport Fireworks! For more info go to the Rockport Fireworks Facebook page. Don't miss the fun!

Saturday, June 28th Pesto is back at the Rockport Farmers Market! We're thrilled that Paolo Laboa's award-winning pesto will be featured this week, along with scones and tea from Heath's Tea Room, produce from Vintage Greens, First Light Farm and Grant Family Farm. Baked goods, from whoopie pies to anadama bread to focaccia bread will be at the market, along with fudge sauce, fresh salsa, maple syrup, tomato plants, amazing Trupiano's Sausage, hot coffee and much more! The Farmers Market is located in Harvey Park, downtown Rockport and runs from 9am to 1pm. Did you see writer Heather Atwood's take on the value of farmers' markets? Read it here: Heather's post really captures what makes the Rockport Farmers Market so special. (Plus she posts a really awesome sausage recipe.)
