MANCHESTER - The Manchester Farmers' Market features fresh, local greens this week.

The market will be held on Thursday in Adams Park from 3-6 p.m. rain or shine.

This is the market's 14th year of featuring fresh, local foods and crafts.

This year shoppers will find a vast selection of local produce, meats, cheese, soaps, coffee and teas, bread, and other prepared foods.

Favored vendors, such as Earth Sky Time Farm, Clear Brook Farm, and True Love Farm will all be returning, along with other familiar faces.
