This holiday market is extra special as we'll have some new vendors added to the mix to give your holiday shopping a kick start. Look for a few local and fair trade craft artisans that are sure to peak your interest. Ann Schunior will have her handcrafted pottery that express her interest in world cultures and travel. Ann is a full-time potter and you'll see her expertise and creativity in every one-of-a-kind piece. Tuccelli Confections will be on hand for the first time with fine handmade chocolates and confections that will be perfect as gifts or treat yourself to a new local flavor. Sippican Farm will have mittens, gloves, scarves and hats made from the fleece from their Alpacas that should keep you warm until the market opens again next year.

Each purchase contributes a percentage towards clinics in their communities. Project Have Hope will also be on hand with their reasonably priced jewelry made from recycled materials. Project Have Hope works with a group of 100 women in the Acholi Quarter of Uganda and helps them transform their lives.
Join us in this warm and toasty atmosphere as we say a fond farewell to the Braintree Farmers Market for the 2011 season. Supporting small local businesses is on the rise. This is an opportunity for consumers to be connected with the business owners and begin to understand the passion they have for their products and support the local economy. These are items that go beyond the bottom line which we've all become accustomed to. These products are grown and made with heart and integrity. We've thoughtfully curated our vendors with a focus on quality and diversity and we're proud of each and every vendor that participates in the market. This is a hoe-down not to be missed! Special thanks to all our Braintree Farmers Market supporters. For more information visit us at www.sustainablebraintree.org/food.
