On Tuesday, November 26th, pick up all the ingredients for your Thanksgiving feast at a special farmers’ market at Newton City Hall, which benefits those at risk for hunger this holiday season. Sixteen local farms and specialty vendors will set up shop at the War Memorial, with fresh produce, artisanal cheeses, pies, craft chocolates, knife-sharpening, hostess gifts, and pasture-raised turkeys. There will even be takeout food to serve your family during those busy days before Thanksgiving. Farmers’ market shopping has already begun, as most vendors are now accepting online orders and offering discounts for pre-orders.
The Thanksgiving market, sponsored by the Newton Farmers’ Market and The Village Bank, is a fundraiser for the Newton Food Pantry and supports local food-aid organization, Community Servings. The goal of the market is to lend a hand to neighbors at risk of hunger this holiday season; provide a fun, festive food event for the Newton community; and support local farms and small vendors. All vendors are donating their fees to the Newton Food Pantry, and the market is a pie pick up site for Community Servings’ Pie in the Sky fundraiser.
The November 26th Thanksgiving Farmers’ Market will be held from 1 – 5 pm, at Newton City Hall’s War Memorial. Free Admission. HIP accepted by Dick’s Market Garden. More information, a complete vendor list, and ordering information available at: www.allovernewton.com
