News Flash !

Ackermann Maple Farm is back this week.

Donna Carlstrom of Sheepshed, a Wakefield summer vendor, will join us this month with her handspun and hand-dyed yarns and delightful sheep pottery. We hear that she will be demonstrating her spinning, as well.

Be sure to check out Atlantic Salt Works for hand-harvested sea salt. From “just the salt” in flake and grindable form, to gourmet blends including Lemon Sea Salt, Salty Tuscan Herbs, and, believe it or not, Coffee Sea Salt – the perfect touch when sprinkled lightly on vanilla ice cream.

Our fish vendors will be alternating months for the winter market.  This week we have Michelle Kraft, The Fish Lady.

Baer's Best Beans is back for one more visit. Be sure to check them out for wonderful dried beans.
For the Kids

Jessica Buster will lead sing-alongs during the day for kids in the lower hall accessible directly from the entry area.  

Cooking Demonstration

The Winter Market has a new cooking demonstrator, Amy Rindskopf.  Amy loves developing recipes with local, seasonal produce. She lives in Winchester and is the events manager at Wright Locke Farm. Amy will use products and produce from the market to create recipes for you to sample and make at home.
