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.
