Uniquely NH Winter Market planned in Bedford

Bedford Fields Home and Garden Center, 331 Route 101, will hold its Uniquely New Hampshire Winter Market from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Jan. 9 and 23 and Feb. 13 and 17.

The market began five years ago when nursery manager Anita Stevens wanted to unite small businesses in New Hampshire.

"It is difficult and expensive to get a new business started," Stevens said. "We have this beautiful greenhouse and store, and we can help."

Store owners Bill and Joanne Zeolie were quick to agree, and provide support to this market. Customers enjoy making purchases directly from the farmer or artisan.The ability to ask questions and support local family businesses makes this market busy and fun.

Jewelry, jelly, meat, eggs, syrup and bread are just a few of the items for sale.
