Turkey

Piper Ranch will be at the market with a variety of grass fed meats including their homemade charcuterie which would be perfect for Thanksgiving appetizers.

Worried about perfectly seasoning that turkey?  Leave it up to the professional and talk to David Bowie from Salem Spice.  He’ll guide you through all of his unique spices including specialty salts and peppers.

Wine

Alfalfa Farm Winery will be selling their delicious wines at the market, pick some up to have with dinner or serve one of their famous fruit wines with dessert.

Pies

If you’ve tried any of Eventide‘s delicious baked goods at the market this year, you know that Meg is one talented baker!  Don’t stress and spend hours baking pies this year, leave it up to the professional!  She will be taking orders for pies at the Farmer’s Market or just send her an email at megpaine@hotmail.com.

Bread

Big Sky Bread will be baking up lots of fresh loaves for you to serve to your guests.  Just pick up a few loaves at the market and then pop them in the freezer for a few days to keep them fresh until Thanksgiving.

In addition to these amazing food vendors, we will also have some crafters joining us so you can get your Christmas shopping started early! MISAAD will be joining us, they make hand-turned wooden pens, decorations, ornaments & doll accessories.  You can also come pick up some unique holiday cards or hand crafted ornaments from Peach Tree Cards.  Or a beautiful piece of artwork by Seascape Creations is the perfect gift for anyone on your list.

Help us make this special market a big success so it can become a Swampscott tradition for years to come!
