Special features at the Newmarket Farmers' Market tomorrow at the Stone Church are Green Gold, music of Sam Southworth and Project Laundry List.
Green Gold was formulated 32 years ago in response to skin irritations when Sharon Cloud had her middle daughter Iris. She did some research and came up with the formula comprised of comfrey leaves and root, calendula, plantain, goldenseal, and beeswax in a base of olive oil. This combination produced a salve good for any kind of rash, burns, wounds, scratches, chapped skin and a wonderful moisturizer, says Sharon. The formula is the same as the day Sharon made her first 6 jars. She currently supplies the The Portsmouth Health Food store, Rising Tide and Blue Moon market with Green Gold. For more information, email Sharon.
Sam Southworth and Friends will be giving market goers a musical treat. He is assembling a Brechtian cabaret for the amusement of market goers on March 20th. Some Commedia del Arte, and a few sock puppets, Ionesco and Beckett, some Jarry and Baudelaire, absinthe, Harpo Marx and Al Jolson, marionettes and Punch & Judy--you know, the usual. It'll be a little like Paris in the 20s, and Berlin before they got all sinister and goofy...it'll be like Newmarket just before the world ended in 2012. Sam has played at the market on other occasions with the band Codfish Aristocracy. For more information, email Sam here.Project Laundry List is a non profit dedicated to making air-drying and cold-water washing laundry acceptable and desirable as simple and effective ways to save energy. Some of the organization's principles include the following: the sun is the most powerful nuclear reactor and can serve many purposes—none of which should be ignored, all citizens nation-wide should have the legal right to hang out their laundry, North Americans-as all people, must lead by example and frugality or thrift needs to be a universally practiced virtue. Information about Project Laundry List will be available at the market tomorrow. The main office is located in Concord, NH. For more information, email Project Laundry List here.
