Scarecrows on the Common Returns- Saturday, Oct. 11

Jaffrey Commons Marketplace

Main_Street,_Looking_East,_East_Jaffrey,_NH_0Jaffrey Commons Market is a cooperative enterprise of (20+) individual businesses, shops, and restaurants located in the Town of Jaffrey. While most of our businesses are located within the downtown area, the Market also includes several small business owners who operate out of their homes. Feel free to explore the Market here and then visit and enjoy everything Jaffrey has to offer including Mount Monadnock, historical Jaffrey Center, fresh water ponds for swimming and fishing, and our wonderful area inns.

Jaffrey is a Main Street Community and the Main Street organization, TEAM Jaffrey, produces many events throughout the year which attracts townspeople and visitors. Highlights include:

  • Concerts on the Common: a series of summer concerts held at the town’s bandstand
  • Riverfest: held annually the last Saturday in July which features an Artisan Fair, “Musical Chairs on Main”, food, entertainment, promotions by businesses and local non profits and much more.
  • Scarecrows on the Common: held annually on the Saturday of Columbus Day weekend where families come downtown and build scarecrows, enjoy food, games and wonderful family fun.
  • Winter Carnival: held annually the second Saturday in February and brings back old fashioned winter fun with sledding, snowman building and yummy treats.

Other programs include the Jaffrey Community Farmer’s Market which is held on Saturday mornings July– October on the lawn of the Jaffrey CIvic Center and lots of local happenings sponsored by Jaffrey Commons Market partners. Check out the calendar for details on our events.
