If you haven’t heard yet, we’ll be having a kid’s Halloween Costume Parade at the last market on the 25th, RSVP via our facebook event page to receive reminders about the event.

PaintingVeggies

We have another fun craft for the kids planned this weekend! This time we’ll be painting with vegetables.  Let’s see what type of fun masterpieces we can create using just paint & vegetables.

We’re at the peak of the season and the produce is looking incredible, make sure you take advantage of it and pick up some fresh veggies for this week’s dinners along with a bottle of award-winning blueberry wine and a cold brew coffee to sip on the way to the beach.

For music this week we’ll be featuring Tev Stevig and Joe Kessler from Seaglass Sound.

We’ll see you there!!

Produce

WELL, it looks like we might have another wet Sunday this week but we’re New Englanders! It just means it may not be a beach day but it will certainly be a Farmer’s Market day. Grab the umbrella and come down for some fun events and a great selection of goods from the vendors.

This week we will be having Pot-A-Plant or Herb event for the kids so bring them down and let them have some fun on a rainy day.

Rich Adams will be playing some music for us and Hope for Creativity will be our civic booth for the week, they are a non-profit providing homeless kids with creative outlets.

2nd Annual Indoor Thanksgiving Market!

SFM_ThanksgivingEventFlyer14

Our Thanksgiving market was such a huge hit last year, we decided to bring it back and make it bigger and better than ever!  If you didn’t get a chance to join us last year, now is the time to take part and stock up on local turkeys, vegetables and baked goods to make your Thanksgiving table stand out.  As if that wasn’t enough, we’ve invited a number of talented local crafters to come so you can get your holiday shopping started early.  As we’re experiencing already, November isn’t known for having the nicest weather forecast so it will be taking place in the warm & dry Swampscott High School Atrium.  See below for more information on how you can reserve your turkey and baked goods for pick-up at the market.

WHEN:  Sunday November 23rd, 2014  10am – 1pm

WHERE:  Swampscott High School Atrium (inside main entrance)

RoastedVeggies2

Our farmers will be bringing a number of hearty fall vegetables and meat, last year I picked up a few beautiful delicata squash and roasted them up with bacon, brussel sprouts and topped it with a maple glaze. Get creative and add something different to the roundup this year, what better way to do that than with some fresh local produce?  Talk to the farmer’s and vendors, if you are unsure of how to cook something, most likely they’ll have a variety of suggestions on how to best serve it up.  David from Salem Spice is another great resource, show him the vegetables or meat that you picked up and he’ll tell you what seasonings or spices will complement it best.

Our food vendors joining us this year will be:

Piper Ranch Beef

Long Hill Orchard

Clark Farm

Grant Family Farm

Salem Spice

Alfalfa Farm Winery

Eventide Confections

The Cannoli Corner

Witch City Salsa

Deano’s Pasta

Melissa’s Honey Pot will be bringing several different flavors and varieties of local honey, honey sticks, locally made syrup, maple candy and maple sugar!

The Soup Guy will have a special Cranberry Squash soup for the Thanksgiving market.

Turkey
