NH Eats Local Month: Week Three
Celebrate eating local by heading out to your favorite local restaurant
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?
Colleen: “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.”
Grab some down-home favorites from Brady’s American Grill or cheers local with a beer and snack at Post & Beam Brewing while you wait for the food truck to arrive in Peterborough. Or head on over to Keene for BBQ at CC&D’s Kitchen Market.
It’s time for pizza on a mission. Jack’s Pizza not only tosses out delicious pies and other pizza shop favorites, but owners Jason and Kathleen are working towards an employee-owned business model and transitioning to a B-Corporation that takes on socioeconomic inequality. Don’t forget to check out their location in Pittsfield.
Dartmouth & Lake Sunapee Region
Taste the best of Jamaican-style cuisine at Sunshine Cookshop in Claremont or stop in at the Acworth Village Store on Saturdays for pizza night.
37 Pleasant St., Claremont
The Merrimack Valley region of the Granite State is overwhelmingly delicious! Feed your Italian side with Neapolitan-style pizza and hearty pasta and other Italian favorites, or enjoy a take-out style at 900 Degrees and Presto Craft Kitchen in Manchester. Score delectable breakfast and lunch dishes at Diz’s Café Downtown and Waterworks Café in Manchester, as well as Tucker’s at their various locations around the Merrimack Valley region and the Seacoast. Get down with pub and brewery fare at Stark Brewing in Manchester and The Sun Pub at Pat’s Peak and make your dine out, dine local a full experience with a wine tasting and world-class dining experience at Labelle Winery’s three locations, including their new culinary campus in Derry.
When it comes to dining local on the Seacoast it’s all about the letter “B.” Breakfast, bagels and beer! Emery Farm & Market offers farm-to-table breakfast and lunch offerings in Durham, while Loxsmith Bagel Company rolls out fresh bagels daily to keep Granite Staters going in the mornings. Bad Lab Beer Co. rounds out the later hours with craft beer and innovative brewpub fare, including a NH Eats Local Month special dish each week.
Food Trucks and More
From fried chicken sandwiches and an entirely plant-based food truck to a fully prepared meal delivery service, dining local in the Granite State doesn’t always mean a traditional restaurant meal. Explore these local food trucks and food producers.
