The Weekly Market
We realize that it is frustrating to come out to the Market looking for a specific item that only a certain vendor has, just to find that they are not there that week. And we know that you’re interested in news and new offerings from vendors. Check here to find out who’s coming and what they’ll have.
SATURDAY November 23rd
Transitions and Treats
As we end the 2014 regular season and look forward to the Holiday and Winter Markets, we are grateful to our creative and dedicated vendors for the great products that they bring and to the consistent and committed customers who so generously support the Market.
This Saturday’s Market will be the last of the regular Saturday markets for this season (though there will be an “unofficial” Market on November 30th). Do not miss this opportunity to gather all of your Thanksgiving meal ingredients; the perfect wine to accompany it, coffee to finish it off and bittersweet and beeswax candles to decorate the table.
This coming Tuesday is the last opportunity to enjoy the Tuesday Market in 2013 and your last chance to stock up on all of your favorite Thanksgiving fare, including a few fresh free range turkeys for the real last minute shoppers out there…
Beginning on December 7, we will go to the Holiday Hours, Saturdays only, from 9 am to noon. We hope you will let us help add a “fresh local kick” to your Holidays and that you and your family will enjoy all of the blessings that the Holiday Season has to offer!
Along the Thanksgiving feast train of thought… apples and cider, pumpkins and squash, potatoes and sweet potatoes, cookies, cakes, pies, breads, butter, jams and jellies, cheeses, meats, honey, eggs, herbs, garlic, beautiful salad mixes…. OK are you getting the picture? When you shop the Market, whether you do all of the cooking or not, your Thanksgiving meal is what’s fresh!
Hickory Hill Farm’s last day for the season will be this Saturday. They will have red and green cabbage, several kinds of winter squash, kale and sorghum molasses (or syrup) Don’t miss this chance to stock up…
