I’m beaming! The Eat Boutique Holiday Local Market is this Saturday, December 10 and I couldn’t be more excited to meet you all. Behind the scenes, I’ve been making hang tags for the gift wrapping station, making up batches of gift boxes, and printing signs for our (count ’em!) 15 food makers. I thought it might be valuable to share just a bit more detail on each participant, so here goes:
Local Food Makers
