Earlier this week I presented a couple of posts about my day out last weekend in Tamworth, NH – mostly at the charming Tamworth Farmers Market. Today, for my Friday Finds, I wrap up my visit with some final finds and observations.

FF: Big Love Mexican Diner

BLDOne of the best things about returning to New Hampshire and the Tamworth Farmers Market in particular, was the opportunity to check in on some old friends. I was very pleased to see the fine folks of Big Love Mexican Diner on hand.

Big Love Mexican Diner serves up some of the best burritos and related Mexican fare from their cool food truck – all sourced from locally grown produce, meat and cheeses.

Seriously, their stuff is the best.

FF: Hobbes Tavern & Brewing Co.

HOBBSMeanwhile, just a couple of country miles down the road from Tamworth in West Ossipee, NH is the brand spanking new Hobbes Tavern & Brewing Co. – and it is fabulous.

Billed as “an idyllic countryside tavern and brew house offering warmth, history, classic comfort food, and handcrafted beer at the foot of the New Hampshire White Mountains”Hobbes Tavern & Brewing Co. is one of the most pleasant restaurant atmospheres I have experienced in a long time and the food is amazing.

And it’s in Ossipee. NH!

FF: Tamworth Distilling & Mercantile

DISTFinally, while visiting Tamworth Village, NH I was thrilled to see the progress being made on the renovation of – or really the transformation of – the historic Tamworth Inn into Tamworth Distilling & Mercantile. I am pleased to say it is coming along nicely.

Sure, as soon as I move away a distillery opens in my former backyard…
