You know it’s Summertime on the Seacoast when the farmers markets start popping up again! One of our favorites is the Rochester Farmers Market which happens every Tuesday at the Rochester Common. They are making Tuesdays cool again from 3pm-6pm until September 28th.

Something that really caught my eye was a vendor out of Somersworth, New Hampshire called The Salted Knot. They sell artisanal soft pretzels and according to Patti on a Rochester, NH Community Facebook page these traditional German pretzels are life changing. Allegedly he sold out of them in an hour and a half last week. Dang! (he said he would bring more this week) It appears he is running a rainy day special today, 3 pretzels for $12. I love a soft pretzel!  I definitely need to try one of these bad boys.

You can also find delicious strawberries, jams, mushrooms, flowers, seedlings, meat, bacon, relishes, sauces, breads, soaps, raffle chances and yes, ICE CREAM at the Rochester Farmers Market. This week they had a local musician named Chris Torrey perform. It’s a whole experience! Go get some delicious, fresh food for your belly and support local vendors at the same time. Sounds like a win win to me! Follow the Rochester Farmers Market on Facebook for updates all Summer long.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
