SUNDAY'S ADDITIONAL VENDORS

ACKERMANN MAPLE FARM
Ian and Caitlin both grew up in Cabot, Vermont. In early 2013, they 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
Fishwives Specialty Foods produces Mandy's famous Seafood Chowdah — a light lobster bisque chock full of shrimp, scallops, clams, and fish. Busy families create amazing dinners by using our chowdah as a sauce for casseroles or pasta. Ask Mandy for her easy recipes. Try their chowdahs and refreshing GoSpacho — a cold, vegan Spanish soup in a bottle. Pop one into your lunch bag and enjoy a taste of the Mediterranean! Products are handcrafted using all-natural, gluten-free, locally sourced ingredients! Marblehead, MA

LITTLE BEEHIVE FARM
Tony Lulek started beekeeping in 2004, calling the enterprise Little Beehive Farm. The farm packs a lot on just under an acre of land in suburban Boston: a huge vegetable garden, a large array of woody shrubs, trees, and perennials, an ever-changing number of chickens, and our hives. Our products include: honey, handmade soaps, hand creams, body lotion, honey candy, candles, honey mustard, and lip balms. Holliston, MA

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

PONY SHACK CIDER
This family-owned cidery nestled in the heart of apple country produces 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
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
