Now that summer is in full swing, there’s no better way to celebrate than by getting outside and taking in the produce, baked goods, meat and flowers of your local farmers market. New Hampshire Eats Local Month is happening August 1-31, so we sat down to talk with NH Food Alliance Communications Coordinator Colleen Stewart to learn more about what is going on during the third week.

What do you have on tap for this week?
“Week three of NH Eats Local Month might be our most delicious week yet. It’s Dine Out, Dine Local Week! Head out to your favorite local restaurant, savor that menu item you’ve been eyeballing, and share it with us via our NH Eats Local Month Photo Contest by tagging @nheatslocal and using the hashtags #nheatslocal and #nheatslocalmonth. We’re offering up a few local restaurants and other places to snag some local fare below, but check in with our friends here at New Hampshire Magazine for more recommendations about where to get your eat local on.”
