Eat Boutique Fall Market on Sept 22: More Makers, Event Now Free!


No Comments

I love living in New England and especially Boston. This city is a tough nut to crack but once you do, once you brave some of its harsh winters and finally become a local, you’re in forever.  I may get to visit far off places and meet food artisans who tell the very best, quirky and heartwarming stories, but really, there’s no place like Boston – this city most definitely always remembers your name.

A funny thing about Boston: it’s ripe with the very best, quirky and strange regulations. For example, did you know it’s illegal to eat peanuts in a church? Yep, who knew! And, there’s this one: tomatoes may not be used in the production of clam chowder. Well, that makes COMPLETE sense. No really, it does. I’m just glad there’s a law in place to be sure of it. 🙂

Seriously though, as our tiny business grows, we’re still learning the ins and outs of these fun regulations. But one things for sure, due to some benevolent quirkiness and the fact that we want to have as many makers as we can share small batch goodness with you, we’ve been able to make the Eat Boutique Fall Market on Atlantic Wharf on September 22nd a FREE event. We’re totally grateful and elated for all of you who actually purchased tickets {thank you, really!}, but we’re refunding your money and making it so anyone can attend the Eat Boutique Fall Market on Atlantic Wharf. All we ask is that you kindly RSVP so all of the makers can plan accordingly. How easy is that?!

After seeing more than 1000 of you at our 2011 Markets, I have to say: the 2012 Fall Market will be just as special but with a view of the beautiful Boston waterfront. We have 20-ish food and drink makers ready to sell and share samples, as well as a beautiful new floral design studio who will sell sweet Fall posies. We’re also just floored to have four amazing food writers in our midst for the day. You can read about these wonderfully-talented ladies and enter a giveaway to win their books.

I do hope to see each and every one of you at the Fall Market. AND if you happen to pick up a bag of peanuts, well, you now know what NOT to do. Tell your friends!

Warmly, Maggie and the Eat Boutique Team
