HeaderWinterAre you going stir crazy staying indoors?

Come on out to the Farmer’s Market where it will be toasty and cozy at the First Congregational Church.

While some of our greens vendors have been impacted by these ridiculously frigid temperatures, our bakers and other vendors have been cocooning and getting inspired in the kitchen! Laurel Maud’s Kitchen has a new organic orange marmalade – just the thing to slather on some Wave Hill brioche.

Stock up on pickles and artisanal cheese from McGrath Cheese Co. Remember most of Wave Hill’s breads are easy to freeze. And Luxx Chocolat will be mixing custom hot cocoa drinks!

And tomorrow is our first annual Chocolate Chip Cookie Contest – with kids judging! There will also be live music by Fred Gillen Jr. Should be fun!
