Gosh, has it been almost three months since our Fall Local Market? The time just flies by when you’ve been:
- Attending the New York Food and Wine Festival
- Finalizing holiday gift boxes of handmade food
- Meeting new food makers in New York, Maine, New Hampshire and Bermuda
- Cooking for 12 at Thanksgiving, all on the day before
- Featured in 101 Cookbook’s November Favorite’s List (Thanks, Heidi!)
- Packing holiday gift boxes (yes, we’ve already packed a ton of them…)
I like to keep busy and I like that the time has flown by. It feels like the right moment to get together again, in a much larger venue, to taste food treats that are well-suited to holiday gift giving. We’ve opened our RSVP list and recommend that you get on the list. Your RSVP helps us plan for samples and staffing.
At this event, we’ll feature some of our favorite food makers, including many new hidden gems in the local food space. We’ll host three amazing authors who will sign their books over the course of the day – check out the schedule on our Holiday Local Market page. Please email if you’d like to reserve one of their books. And for those of you who want to leave the heavy lifting to us, we will offer gift wrapping services; this is new for us and a way for us to fund future Local Markets.
We’ll be passing samples like last time and selling several items from our holiday gift box collection, like our Holiday Breakfast gift box, New England gift box, Cocktails gift box and Our Favorite Jams gift box. We’ll also be offering several stand alone items, including our favorite and super popular granola made by Cow & Crumb, handmade marshmallows, caramel popcorn and the most delicious candied orange rinds ever.
We’ll be accepting credit cards but many of the vendors are cash only, so just keep that in mind. There’s a parking garage just across the street and street parking all around the neighborhood. And while you’re in Fort Point, we strongly recommend you also visit: Flour Bakery, Sportello, and Twelve Chairs.
See you there! xox, Maggie
