Hello, Goodbye! 11/21/2014

cropped-cornmgm_edited-1.jpg

It’s been a long season, starting in early April and now we have only two MGM events left for the year. For this Friday and the next Tuesday Special Market you’ll find us warm, dry, and cozy, INDOORS; at the Parish Hall, located at the rear of the church green. We still have a great selection of meats, baked goods, eggs, and fall produce such as, potatoes, kale, chard, and more. We’re hoping you will come see us, shop for the holidays ahead, say the last of your hellos, and your goodbyes.

We also hope that you’ve had a great time coming to market this season, finding great food and making friends while enjoying the music and sunshine. It seems to have gone by all too quickly. Speaking for all of the vendors, volunteers, and myself; thank you for coming and for keeping it alive. This is what an ongoing community supported project looks like. It makes me proud to be a part of it. We all wish you a great winter; hunker down, stay warm and enjoy all that comes with the seasons. Looking forward to seeing you next spring at the MGM.

Ghost Busting!!! At the MGM 10/31/2014

halloween2

Just in case you missed it, we’ve moved INDOORS  to the Parish Hall, located at the rear of the church green. Although it’s been a wonderful summer for the MGM, filled with great weather and an abundance of produce and all of the other products that you have come to expect from our crew of dedicated vendors, we are excited about this move. It can be a bit grueling when it’s cold and damp outside and you need to basically stand in one place for three hours. We’re hoping that you will  continue to come see us, shop, hang out, and have a great time at the market this and all of the remaining weeks to come. We’ll be inside until mid November with a great selection of meats, baked goods, eggs, maple products, and fall produce like winter squash, pumpkins, potatoes, and more. Come on down for a frightening good time!

Hillstone will be back this week with their quality beef, other meats, and great hot-dogs; you won’t find this type of dog or anything like them in any store.

Herb Corner will be bringing beautiful fall flower arrangements this week. They partner with Keeney Farm for their pumpkins, and the flowers come from their own cutting gardens. They should also have Swiss Chard, fresh cut herbs, tomatoes (red and green), and butternut squash. They will also, for the next two weeks, be selling Liz’s great jams and jellies from Yorkshire Meadows.
