What the Locals Know
For a great Portsmouth-area breakfast, skip the diner and grab a bite at Seacoast Farmers’ Market. Held each Saturday from May to November, the market’s main draw is locally grown fruits and vegetables. But this outdoor bazaar also offers quick breakfast options, including freshly baked goods and coffee from Me & Ollie’s. For heartier appetites, put your name in for a farm-fresh breakfast sandwich from Kellie Brook Farm. While you’re waiting, browse Loon Lodge Baskets and Kit Cornell Pottery, select a bottle from Jewell Towne Vineyards, and catch the tunes from the band of the week. Located at Portsmouth’s City Hall Plaza, the unique views of downtown alone make it worth the trip. May 3-Nov. 1 Saturdays only, 8-1. City Hall Plaza, 1 Junkins Ave., Portsmouth.
