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)

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
