TODAY'S ADDITIONAL VENDORS
BEE FIELDS FARM
Bee Fields 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
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
Lawton’s Family Farm creates its Foxboro Cheese products from the milk of grass-fed cows. Because the cows eat no grain, the cheese is soy and corn free. Foxborough, MA
Small-batch jams, jellies, and marmalades
Jamboleo jams, jellies, and marmalades are handcrafted in batches of 8–10 jars at a time in a permitted residential kitchen. Two essential flavors meet in every jar — one fruit, and one herb or spice. Our recipes feature a short ingredient list and no added pectin. The result is one irresistible blended flavor that is good enough to eat with a spoon! Arlington, 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
JENNIFER'S HANDMADE SOAP
Jennifer's Handmade Soap makes vegetable-based soaps, using only natural oils from coconut, palm, castor seed, and avocado. These natural oils softly clean and moisturize your skin, leaving it feeling silky smooth and completely pampered. Concord, MA
CAMERON SUTPHIN & MARY HASTINGS
Nashville recording artists Cameron Sutphin and Mary Hastings have performed their versions of country and folk music as the duo Cameron and Mary across the U.S. They started performing around New England 10 years ago with the country group Wing and a Prayer, and have since toured from Connecticut to Colorado and back. Transcending folk Americana, their music echoes inspiration from singer/songwriters like Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, and Neil Young, combining simple melodies and lyrical intensity. Enfield, CT
A-B CULTURAL COUNCIL
The Acton-Boxborough Cultural Council (ABCC) is one of 329 all-volunteer local cultural councils serving every municipality in Massachusetts. The legislature appropriates funds annually to the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC), which then allocates funds to local councils. Local councils use funding guidelines and priorities established by the MCC, and may add local guidelines and priorities as well. We then distribute these funds to support performances and cultural activities in and around our towns. Acton & Boxborough, MA
