Andover & North Andover Farmers Market this Weekend
Both Andover and North Andover run in-season Farmers Markets on weekend mornings. North Andover Farmers Market is every Sunday. While Andover Farmers Market is every Saturday. And this Saturday in Andover includes Andover Bees and Teas. As well as Dracut’s Farmer Dave’s, who hopefully will have lots of plums for baking a delicious Plum Torte.

Dine Alfresco at Bartlet Street Andover
Bartlet Street Andover joined the alfresco dining trend. So why not meet a friend for lunch at the new-this-year Downtown Andover eatery. Enjoy a summer breeze and a Matchstick Apple Salad. Made with granny smith apples, dried cranberrries, pistachio blue cheese, apple cider vinaigrette, and spring greens.
Or a Chicken Gyro with house-made herb tzatziki sauce. Or the Andover Smoothie. A creamy blend of coconut milk, oats, banana, honey, vanilla, maple syrup, cinnamon and nutmeg. You get the idea — Delish!
