Love your Local Veggies

Several varieties of produce are available at 2nd Nature Farm.
Visit one of the finest farmers markets in Massachusetts-the Braintree Farmers Market, hosted by Sustainable Braintree, which operates every Saturday through October from 9 to 1, rain or shine, at the Braintree Town Hall.  In the event of nasty weather the market is moved in front of and inside the town hall.  Now is the season for root vegetables and a good time to get out the crock pot for soups and stews.  The growers are harvesting turnips, carrots, beets, onions, potatoes and more.  Last week Second Nature Farm brought in 36 different varieties of locally grown produce from the fields.  Joe Beaulieu Butcher Shop always stocks many more choices of meats than you can purchase at grocery stores.  If he doesn't have what you're looking for he can probably find it for you.

The Indoor Thanksgiving Market is gearing up for Saturday, Nov. 17th, when all of our regular vendors, Visiting Vendors and a few more will unite in front of and inside the Braintree Town Hall.  Candis Stout will be on hand with jazz musicians to perform pieces from America's Songbook. Each year this market gains in popularity as it's a great time stock up for the holidays and say goodbye to your favorite vendors until next year.  Bring your visitors from out-of-town and show them this unique community event that has something for everybody.

Cream will be joining the market for the rest of the season with their Massachusetts-made ice cream.  Look for their brand new cart filled with fall inspired flavors like Pumpkin, Cranberry Harvest and Apple Crisp available in pint and half gallon sizes.  Each flavor is so delicious you'll want to pick up one of each to sample with your other market goodies.

This coming Saturday the market is introducing another new Visiting Vendor for the very first time.  Join us in welcoming Morning Bird Botanicals.   Michelle Angelides makes and sells natural honey-and-honeybee-based skin care products.  Michelle is also a beekeeper and uses her honey for products like Pucker Up!™ lip balm, Bees Knees Honey Soaps™, soaking salts, body butters and lotions and Scent Sticks for Men™ and women.  This vendor will be with us for this Saturday, Oct. 13th only, so please try out her products and let us know what you think.
