A Special Place to Visit in Tilton

Tilton Winter Farmers' Market 

The Tilton Winter Farmers' Market

Open on Saturdays and Sundays from December through the end of March,
the Tilton Farmers' Market brings over 40 vendors together to sell fresh
vegetables, breads, pastries, meats and eggs, mushrooms, jams and
jellies, maple syrup, fresh-roasted coffee, soups, and much more.
Recently awarded NH Magazine's Editor's Pick, the winter market is found
in the old Agway Building on Route 3 in Tilton and open from 10 to 2 on
weekends. It is a chance to get out of the house and to shop for locally-grown
food and products while listening to live music and visiting with friends.

                       New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services How to Report A Wetlands Violation

NH DES requires a permit to dredge and fill a wetland, replace or alter
                               a septic system, make land alterations or construction within 250 feet
                               of protected shoreland, move more than 100,000 square feet of earth,
                               or have overland stormwater runoff (non-point source pollution).
                               What do you do if you see what you think is a violation? You may want
                               to discuss your concerns with the alleged violator. You can determine
                               if an activity warrants a complaint by visiting the NH DES website where
                               there is an interactive t
ool that will assist you. If you believe that
                               a violation has occurred, you can contact the town's code enforcement
                               officer, town health officer, or conservation commission. NH DES has a
                               complaint form online that can be filled out. DES depends on the public
                               to provide thorough and accurate information which they will then use
                               to assess the potential for environmental harm and to determine if an
                               investigation is warranted.

                                                     With all the hype about the cold weather this year, it's important to
                                                                  remember that winter in NH can be a wonderful time if you dress
                                                                  appropriately for the conditions. There is no need to hibernate; get
                                                                  out and enjoy. Just be sure to wear layers to protect your core body
                                                                  temperature. And, your mother was right, always wear a hat and
                                                                  mittens. In sub-zero and windy times, a scarf is also a good idea.
                                                                  Socks and waterproof boots are essentials. Hand and feet warmers
                                                                  can be helpful if you're going to be outside for any length of time.
                                                                  Finally, keep hydrated. Warm fluids like cider, soup, and hot chocolate
                                                                  are good ways to keep warm, too.
