NEXT SUNDAY =
LAST MARKET DAY OF 2015 SEASON!
BUT WAIT — THERE'S MORE!

Though the regular season ends on 10/25, the great news is that the ABFM has arranged to hold two holiday markets this year! Woot!

Join us on Sundays, Nov. 22 and Dec. 20, 10am–1pm, for pre-holiday markets at which you can purchase many of your holiday needs. Plans are being finalized, so check the ABFM Calendar and the ABFM eblast in the next few weeks for details. We expect to have vendors providing produce, meats, bagels, fruits, wines, mushrooms, maple syrup, baked treats (perhaps including pies that can be pre-ordered), dips and spreads, a variety of condiments, breads, and (maybe) fresh, line-caught, local fish!

These holiday markets will be hosted at the new West Acton venue: The Gallery at Villageworks, 525 Mass. Ave. Check out Villageworks at www.WestActonVillageworks.com


 SUNDAY'S ADDITIONAL VENDORS

ACKERMANN MAPLE FARM
In early 2013, Ian and Caitlin purchased the 36 acres that would become Ackermann Maple Farm, and constructed their business. The sap that flows from more than 3,000 taps is heated using a wood fire, evaporating the water and drawing out the pronounced natural maple flavor for which Vermont is known. The tapping, sap collection, boiling, filtering, bottling, and shipping are all done by Ian and Caitlin. Cabot, VT

CROOKED ROW FIELDS
