Thank you all for an absolutely wonderful Thanksgiving Market on Saturday -- we had great vendors, and volunteers, great music, great crowds -- and we heard many times that this was, perhaps, our best Market yet. We're inclined to agree!
Congratulations to our three raffle basket winners: Ann Barsi, Mrs. Mohindra, and Wendy Shenk-Evans -- our vendors were very generous in their donations and these baskets were fantastic. In fact, Ann Barsi sent us this effusive email:
WOW! Was I a big winner!! Just as we got home from stocking up on all manner of goodies at the Thanksgiving Market, I got a phone call saying we'd won BASKET #1 in the raffle. I couldn't believe all of the amazing things tucked into that winning basket.....
- $10 gift certificate for the next market
- 1 quart Simple Pleasures Ice Cream certificate
- Bottle of Cygnus wine
- Bar of Black Diamond Soap from Essential Reign
- Tin of Organic Shea Butter
- Fresh apples and squash
- Big bag of Moctec Chips
- Silver Earrings
- Hand-made Ceramic dish from Madeleine Golde
- Baby Boppy from Stefanie Krimsky
- 2 jars of Martha's Jams
- Fresh Collard and Tomato Bruschetta from Gone Greens
- Ceramic Mexican Ornament from New Starts Farm
- Community Market Shopping Bag
- Handled Fruit Basket
Even by a conservative estimate, that's over $120 worth of goodies for the price of a raffle ticket. All of these gifts were donated by the loyal vendors to promote our Cheverly Community Market. I know I need to thank each and every one of them for making our town's market so special. If you haven't supported the Market by getting a raffle ticket before, make sure you do next time - you too might be the big winner!!
Ann BarsiWe'll have another raffle at our Holiday Market on December 14 -- make sure to enter!
We're still taking orders for Maryland Christmas trees from Mayne's Farm -- you may order and pay online via EventBrite (you may also reserve via EventBrite and pay at the Market on December 14). The deadline is Friday, December 6, so place your order today!
Again, many thanks for a spectacular market -- we're already working on our Holiday Market (December 14) and will have lots of news to share with you over the coming weeks. In the meantime, Cheverly Community Market wishes you and yours a very happy, healthy Thanksgiving (and safe travels for those of you leaving Cheverly). We are honored to be part of this great community.
