Below is the weekly newsletter from Atherton Market, South End’s year round, indoor farmer’s market. They have some great events this holiday season so make certain to add them to your calendar.
What’s happening this week at the Atherton Market?
Signs of the upcoming holidays are all around us. It is unbelievable that Thanksgiving is next week! We’ve had a mild and bountiful fall, so you should have no problems sourcing lots of local produce for your seasonal events. We also have great hostess gifts, as well as many ways to get a jump on your general shopping list. From personal items like jewelry and bath products to items for everyone including gift certificates, we can help please the ones you love (or have to buy for anyway).
We are ecstatic to welcome a new vendor beginning this weekend for the holiday season – the Barking Dog Chocolatier. Those of you who know Debbie and Joal are probably surprised to hear that they are selling at a market, as in the past their sales have been at private events and to their expansive network of friends and neighbors. All of their proceeds go to charitable organizations, and if you’ve ever sampled their handmade candies made from carefully selected ingredients, you already know how special they are. Come find your new delight!
Exceptional Terrariums is now offering a catalogue of container and plant options so you can design your own terrarium for holiday giving and general special occasions. You choose the date for them to have it ready and you can pick it up from their booth at Atherton Market. They are at the market on Tuesday evening as well as Friday and Saturday this week, so you have several opportunities to come see what they have to offer if you haven’t already.
Our growing calendar of upcoming events includes a challenge to area chefs and cooks to make a better stack of latkes than Bill Averbach of Pickleville on December 7th at 10 am during the sure to be entertaining Latke Cookoff and Demo. Come visit him at the Prepared Food cooperative during the week to get more details and enter the contest. Later that evening we’ll be open for the 2nd annual Holiday Arts Market, so you can make a day of it. We have a few spaces available for visiting vendors on that evening, so if you have handmade wares to showcase reply to this email with an inquiry.
There are still seats available for the seven course nose to tail dinner on December 15th. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with a request for reservations and you will be billed via PayPal. Tickets must be paid to hold your seats.
It may be cold and wet today, but we’re indoors and undercover! Come get a warm beverage from Monk’s Groovy Beans and embark on a local food adventure with us. You never know what is going to happen at the Atherton Market.
Keeping it fresh and local,
Lynn S. Caldwell
