CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The governor of New Hampshire wants residents to eat locally.
Republican Gov. Chris Sununu plans to kick off a week-long celebration Sunday of farmers markets around the state. Sununu will join the Shawn Jasper, the state's commissioner of agriculture, at markets in Rochester Aug.4 as well as Barnstead and Concord on Aug. 8. Jasper will also visit the Lebanon Farmers market on Aug. 6.
Farmers markets have been deemed essential businesses by the state during the coronavirus pandemic.
Along with visits to farmers markets, Sununu has proclaimed August as New Hampshire Eats Local Month. It's a annual celebration of New Hampshire’s food and agricultural production. August is considered the peak of the summer growing season, a time when a large variety of foods are available.
