|Rita Carolina helps her mother Carmen Mirabel sell her all-natural soaps and lotions.|
At the helm of All My Angel's Call Soaps is Carmen Mirabel who was one of our founding vendors when the Braintree Farmers Market opened back in 2009. Carmen and her daughter, Rita Carolina, are happily back again with Carmen's luxurious body products that include soaps, lotions, soy candles and essential oils, handcrafted from flowers, vegetables and trees that enhance and heal the quality of our lives. Carmen uses all-natural essential oils that are used for aromatherapy, an alternative form of medicine in which healing effects are ascribed to the aromatic compounds in the oils and other plant extracts. Many common plants have medicinal properties that have been applied in folk medicine since ancient times and are still widely used today. As you walk near Carmen's tent you will be drawn in by the luscious scents of her products and we're thrilled to have her back with us. My Angel's Call Soaps will be at the market every Saturday for the remainder of the season.
This week, Fairland Farm Cranberries will be our Guest Visiting Vendor with their dried and fresh local cranberries. Jack's Doggy Snacks will also be on board with Marni's all-natural dog snacks that will make your canines sit up and beg for more. Make sure to stock up as they will not be returning until our Special Indoor Thanksgiving Market on Nov. 23rd. The Braintree Farmers Market will operate in our outdoor location at the Braintree Town Hall on Saturdays throughout October from 9 to 1, rain or shine. Please join us.

|The Braintree Farmers Market runs thru October.|
The Braintree Farmers Market is brought to you by the efforts of volunteers who recognize the value of local foods, environmental issues and, most importantly, the strong sense of community that has blossomed in our efforts to bring this event to Braintree. The market runs on Saturdays from 9 to 1, rain or shine, in front of the Braintree Town Hall. In the event of severe weather conditions the market will be moved inside the town hall auditorium. Thanks to everyone who supports this labor of love and, if you have never been to the market, now is the perfect time to try us out. See you on Saturday.
