4th Annual Indoor Thanksgiving Market

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and it’s time to think about what to serve your guests.

We’ll be hosting our 4th annual Indoor Thanksgiving Market on Sunday November 20th, 10-1 in the Swampscott High School Atrium. If you haven’t joined us in the past, it isn’t one to miss! Stock up on fresh local vegetables and goodies to bring to the host or to serve up to your guests.

Long Hill Orchard will be bringing Turkeys for those who preorder with them. Please email them at longhillorchards@gmail.com or call 978-363-2170 to place your order for pickup at the market. Some sizes do sell out.

Mia’s House of Sweets will be selling her wonderful scones and treats and will be taking orders for fresh pies that can be picked up on the day before Thanksgiving at Town Hall from 9-12.

Clark Farm with be bringing apples, winter squash, honey, cranberries, greenhouse tomatoes, kale, leeks and cauliflower.  Grant Family Farm, Salem Spice, The Soup Guy, Ackermann Maple Farm, AllFruit, Arrowhead Farm, Moran’s Pet Food, The Pickle Emporium & Alfalfa Farm will also be joining us. And don’t forget our 4 legged friends and pick up some dog treats from Moran’s pet food. We are still waiting on final confirmation with our other vendors but we will update our event page as soon as we have them so be sure to like the Swampscott Farmers Market on Facebook.

Alfalfa Farm will be there with their terrific Blueberry Wine, a NEW dry blueberry wine as well as a limited amount of 2016 Strawberry Wine, made from the berries picked at Marini Farm in Ipswich this past spring.  It is a semi-sweet wine, with a strong strawberry nose and a pleasantly surprising rose finish. Delicious!  And of course they will have a great supply of their Cranberry Wine, perfect for ALL the holidays. They are also hosting their annual craft fair: “Crafts and Cranberries” on Nov 27 from 1 -5.

In addition to our food vendors, we will be featuring a variety of talented local crafters so you can peruse their handmade goods and get a start on your holiday shopping. Crafters joining us at the market are…

The Swampscott Historical Society, Donna Bagarella jewelry, Dave Matthews Pottery, Bills Beads, Barefoot Books, Sew Envious Crafts, Salem Soapworks, Kat’s Latest Addiction as well as Town of Swampscott selling long sleeve t-shirts. Salem Soapworks will have lots of holiday baskets in an assorted price range ($10.00 – $25.00), in addition to their usual products.
