TODAY'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
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
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
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
Repurposed Wood Creations
Small wooden totes, birdhouses, tic-tac-toe marble games, and bag/bottle dryers all made from wood scrap and pallets. All proceeds to benefit Dana-Farber Cancer Institute via the Pan-Mass Challenge. Maynard, MA

The AML serves the informational, educational, and recreational needs of residents of all ages and backgrounds. Given community diversity and high demand, the library develops collections in a variety of formats to meet known and anticipated community needs; strives to make residents aware of its services and collections, and to make them as accessible as possible via on-site and electronic means. The Library strives to use resources (staff, technology, and building accommodations) as efficiently possible. Acton, MA
