HIGHLIGHTED SEASONAL VENDOR

Each week we list the vendors who come to market on alternate weeks or on a "per diem" basis. We also highlight one of our seasonal vendors — many of whom have been part of the ABFM for multiple years — so that you can get to know them better. Information on all our vendors is always available at our website: www.ABFarmersMarket.org/our-vendors


HAPBERLY FARMS

Our cut-flower farm grows a wide variety of seasonal flowers; we sell them at farmers markets, through local florists, and at our roadside stand, located at the farm. We believe in sustainable farming practices and only produce flowers that will thrive in our growing conditions without the use harsh chemical additives.

Everyone's Fave:

The ABFM Cooking Demo
with Chef Taylor Miller

Chef Taylor Miller comes to the ABFM, via our 2015 Sponsor True West V.S.B., to demonstrateand share delicious, veggie-based creations that use the best of the farmers market season. Watch the Chef make Eggplant "Manicotti" with Herb & Arugula Pistou, and an Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho. You can sample them, take a copy of the recipes, grab the veggies for them at market, and recreate these dishes at home. Find the demo next to the ABFM stall at market . . . or just follow your nose!

"True West — scheduled to open in a few weeks — celebrates the village heritage of Acton and Boxborough with our unique V.S.B. (Village Supported Brewery) and farm-to-fork restaurant. Our 10-barrel brewery and locally sourced menu represent us — families, farmers, brewers, business owners, and community activists. True West will deliver delicious, masterfully handcrafted beer and food, while encouraging local sustainability through community involvement."

Chef Taylor Miller grew up around cooking and restaurants, and began working in the industry at age 12. Hungry to learn more, he enrolled in Le Cordon Bleu in Dover, NH. Stints at 43 North in Portsmouth (where he discovered his passion for scratch-cooked food), at Inn on The Blues Restaurant in York Beach, ME, and at the Green Monkey in Portsmouth prepared him for his career at 7th Settlement, a farm-to-table, Community Supported Brewpub. He is currently Executive Chef at 7th Settlement, which is sister to True West VSB. Taylor and his team have won numerous competitions, including the Portsmouth Chowder Fest and the Taste of Lake Winnipesaukee.

The tapping, sap collection, boiling, filtering, bottling, and shipping are all done by Ian and Caitlin. Cabot, VT
