It’s August already?!

We’re looking forward to another great Market this Saturday. With the recent warm weather there should be an increased quantity of corn and tomatoes and Brigham Farm will be bringing peaches from Carlson Orchard.

Corn season is starting!

Joining the weekly vendors find Joni’s Cannoli’s in the shade next to Applefield Farm and Burro’s Tail Farm succulent arrangements for their only date of the season. b-organicBefore shopping at the farmers, you’ll want to pay a visit to new artisan Cathy of B-Organic Bags. Her 100% organic cotton produce bags come in an array of designs and can help you eliminate single-use bags from your life. Brookfield Candle Company attends with her hand-poured soy candles.  MayDOG is celebrating their 5th anniversary and volunteers are at the Community Table to let you know how you can participate, Nan of groovyhome will share how she can help  you turn your home into your sanctuary, for less money than you think, and at the Serendipity Cafe Music tent, enjoy performances  by Paul Driscoll at 9am followed by Ralph DeFlorio at 11:15. In the kids’ area, staff from the Discovery Museum in Acton will have hands-on science activities for adults and kids to do together.  This week, find a friend or neighbor who’s never been to the Market and bring them down to discover the fun and local food.

 

 

The Alpacas will be visiting

Looking forward to cooler weather this Saturday.  In addition to the weekly vendors (Dino’s Pasta returns after missing last week due to the heat), you’ll find The Compulsive Baker, Pony Shack Cider, Suzanne Selig massage and community groups ACME Theater and Assabet Village Co-op Market. This is the first date of the season for artisan Everything Alpaca and along with their alpaca products, they’ll have duck eggs (and the alpacas!). IMG_5459

Bruce Davidson Art will be selling: prints of the  panoramic Maynard painting, his nature greeting cards, and both prints and the original art.  It’s Youth Day at the Serendipity Music tent with a performance by Elliott followed by the Maynard Public Schools Jazz Band led by Trisha Gately. At 10am, we’ll celebrate dance with Miss Trisha’s Dance Studio beginning with some solo and duet performances by her dancers, followed by a short demo class for the kids.

Hope to see you at the Market!

We’ll be open 8:30am-noon!

We’ll be opening at 8:30am this Saturday. Look for the farmers to have the first of the cherry tomatoes on Saturday – a sign of bigger things to come (tomatoes that is). Tim attends with the Muddy Water Coffee Roasters truck for the first time this season. He’ll have plenty of iced coffee drink to help cool you off.

Saturday’s vendors include weekly vendors Applefield Farm, Balance Rock Farm, Brigham Farm, Cookie Lady Treats and Hudson Hives, periodic vendors The Compulsive Baker and Joni’s Cannolis and artisans Jennifer’s Handmade Soaps (now offering shaving soap & brushes) and Julie James Woodworking who is fundraising for her Pan Mass Challenge ride.

Chef’s Day Out: It’s Mocktail Time

On July 13, we welcome the Orange Door Kitchen team to the Market for Chef’s Day Out starting at 10am. mint They’ll be shopping the market for local seasonal ingredients to make craft mocktails, then demonstrating how to create delicious syrups, shrubs, and infusions to kick your cocktail game up to the next level this summer. Come for the inspiration, stay for the yummy samples.

At the Serendipity Cafe Music tent we are excited to have Average Joel. Joel comes to the stage with an hour and a half set of original, moving Americana music. Community Table groups are Sudbury Valley Trustees and Maynard MA Neighbor Brigade with free giveaways for anyone who signs up as a volunteer and information about how to receive their free services if you’re in a temporary crisis.

Joining the weekly vendors, Pony Shack Cider makes the first of their every-other-week visits to the Market this season and The Compulsive Baker starts a three-week run.

We introduce two new-to-us artisans – Savannah’s Nourish Shakti and Eleonora Lecei Pottery – as well as host Kids’ Artisan Day.  Savannah (who is also a Maynard resident) offers compassionate wellness coaching and inspired botanical creations while Eleonora makes hand built pottery and ceramic sculpture and specializes in raku glazes.
