SUNDAY'S ADDITIONAL VENDORS

BEE FIELDS FARM
Bee Field Farm medicinal garden contains more than 100 different herbs. All the flowers and shrubs planted in our garden have been planted for their medicinal, edible, or pollination uses. We use organic and biodynamic gardening practices to enhance and enrich the fertility of our beautiful garden. Our preparation process is very simple: we harvest, strip, sort, clean, infuse, pour, pack, and label our products by hand. Wilton, NH

COASTAL VINEYARDS
Fine Creative Wines

We grow 12 different grape varieties on our 10-acre vineyard, producing white and red wines, most dry and some sweeter wines. Our varieties include Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Chambourcin, Marquette, and others.  All our wines are made in our farm winery in South Dartmouth. Please visit, tour our vineyard and winery, and (of course) taste our wines; the Tasting Room is open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, noon–5pm. Dartmouth, MA

LASZLO FAMILY FARM / SITZENS ANIMAL TREATS
SITZENS Animal Treats are Farm-Direct! All ingredients are produced on our farm and/or sourced locally and regionally. Fed daily to our hard-working farm dogs, barn cats, and riding horses, all treats on our farm are baked, roasted, or smoked by Laszlo Farm and are preservative free. We offer biscuits, bones, training treats, and more. Every SITZENS treat purchase aids our continuing conservation of rare-breed livestock. Pets like local, too! Ashby, MA

Our magical sauces enhance the taste of anything, and can be used as a dipping/finishing sauce, marinade, BBQ sauce/additive, or cooking ingredient.
