TODAY'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
FISHWIVES SPECIALTY FOODS
Not for Wimpy Chowdaheads!
Mandy's offers handcrafted, all-natural, gluten-free seafood chowders and bisques, vegetable and fruit gazpachos, and dips and spreads. She sources as much sustainable seafood from from New England as possible, as well as produce from local farms.
PONY SHACK CIDER
We are a family-owned cidery nestled in the heart of apple country. Our mission is to produce small batch, artisanal cider from locally sourced ingredients. We dream big and believe life is too short to drink a bad glass of cider. Boxborough, MA
Snowplace Farm, small family farm committed to sustainable and biodynamic growing practices, offers heirloom vegetables, herbs, fruits, and berries, and free-range chicken and duck eggs. Lunenburg, MA
WEST RIVER CREAMERY
West River Creamery is a small cheese-making facility that makes several different types of farmstead cheese and other specialty products. Londonderry, VT
Kittredge Candles offers 100% pure soy candles, including jars, tins, tarts, tea lights, votives, and novelty candles, as well as soaps, all natural goat's milk lotions, and gift sets. Everything we sell is handmade and available in more than 150 fragrances. The proceeds from the sale of all of our cat candles and soaps are donated to our local cat shelter; we encourage recycling by giving a refund for the return of any of our candle jars. Andover, MA
GENE BELLOTTI & FRIENDS
Folk, country, blues, and jazz. You may have heard Gene and his friends perform at the Tuesday open mic at MainStreets Market and Cafe in Concord. Now you can enjoy Gene’s music — along with his bandmates from the Cellar Dwellers Blues Band — while you browse, buy, eat, and walk through the market. Acton, MA
