Thank you for a tremendous end to our regular season...now on to the Special Markets!
What a wonderful way to wind down the regular season for 2013 -- perfect late October weather, wonderful people and music, terrific food -- we could't have asked for more! Thank you to everyone who donned those extra layers this morning and came out. Special thanks to our wonderful volunteers, who work throughout the season to make Cheverly Community Market the treasure it is. And to our vendors, community groups, and entertainers, too!
We're gearing up for two great special annual events to round out 2013 -- our Thanksgiving Market (November 23) and our Holiday Market (December 14), both 8am to noon at the Cheverly Community Center. Cheverly Community Market is a great place to prepare for the holidays and support local farmers, cooks, bakers, and craftspeople. This holiday season, we hope you buy local and buy handmade! If you're interested in joining us as a vendor, take a look at our guidelines and application. The application deadline is Monday, October 28.
In the coming weeks, we'll use the blog to share information on how to pre-order all sorts of delectable holiday treats. Our vendors will offer preorders for oysters and heritage turkeys from Two Oceans Seafood/Carriage House Farm, hams from Waltz Family Farm, rum cakes from Cakes by Ruthann, and floral arrangements from All in the Details Floral Design, as well as Christmas trees, Market gift certificates and more! We'll also highlight great recipes for the holidays, as well as news about vendors and community groups joining us in November and December. So, though the regular portion of our 2013 season is now in the books, the holiday fun is just getting started at Cheverly Community Market. We look forward to sharing the season with you!
