TODAY'S ADDITIONAL VENDORS
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
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
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
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
Images, Voyages, Impressions
Photo images, prints, woodcuts and linocuts. Medford, MA
