Vendorpalooza is this Saturday!  In addition to our amazing, regular membership of farmers and produce vendors, customers will enjoy an array of new local vendors who are visiting Chatham Mills Farmers’ Market for the first time!

There will be a variety of new farm produce to choose from, including vegetables, flowers, fruit, meat and poultry (time to order your Thanksgiving Turkey!), preserves, baked goods, and additional farm produce and craft, like soaps, wool, yarn and more!

We are also welcoming many local artists and crafts-people, including hand-forged metal-work, locally made farm tools, handmade jewelry, watercolor and landscape paintings, hand-knit and fabric-craft items, custom knives, copper trellises, upcycled and natural artwork and more!

I addition to the many great new local products to choose from, you will also find local masseurs offering Thai massage, as well as kids’ art activities and face-painting!

There will also be live Old-time music for the day, provided by The Hoppin’ Johnnies & Friends and delicious, home-baked pies can be found at the Hoppin’ John Bake Sale tent – all funds raised supporting this year’s local fiddler’s convention coming up in September!

It promises to be a lively and fun day at the market and we hope that we will see you there!
