May is when many farmers markets get underway or move from indoor markets to outdoor locations.
Jane Lang is president of the New Hampshire Farmers Market Association. She says it’s still early in the growing season, but over time consumers will see more options.
“A lot of them bring a lot of their seeds and things like that to the market," Lang says. "But you’re going to start seeing the vegetables coming probably in the next few weeks.”
Lang says a number of food producers are extending the growing season by raising produce with heated greenhouses and other cold-weather growing techniques.
According to the list maintained by the state Department of Agriculture, Markets and Food, more than a dozen farmers markets are now open in the state.
