Nestled in the Nashoba Valley, Westward Orchards is a 275-acre, fourth-generation family farm that produces the area’s best blueberries, peaches, pears, plums, and apples. The farm’s on-site store — in a 1900-era dairy barn — is filled with gourmet foods, fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, sandwiches, and hearty soups. Enjoy a cup of coffee, a snack, or lunch on the covered porch; the lunch counter hours are 11am–3pm; breakfast is available on weekends, 9–11am.

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. South Dartmouth, MA


PET WANTS LITTLETON

MANRAAJ LIQUID YOGA

Freshly made herb juices served as incentives for yoga or exercise for us when we grew up in India. For the last few years, we have been recreating the same magic. Manraaj, a liquid yoga company, is our attempt to spread the goodness to others and serve health-conscious folks. Lowell, MA

SA'S HOMESTYLE
Sa's Homestyle is the maker of Sa's Sweet and Spicy Sauce. Our magical sauces enhance the taste of anything they're put on. Versatile, it can be used as a dipping/finishing sauce, marinade, BBQ sauce/additive, or cooking ingredient. We offer the following varieties: X-Hot, Hot, Mild, and Mild w/ organic cider vinegar. These sauces have some warmth, but even our spiciest variety will not set your mouth on fire! Natick, MA
