In addition to our 2017 Year in Review post, we thought you might like to take a look back at all the awesome happening at the New Glasgow Farmers Market last year! We look forward to making new memories with you in 2018!
Ladies, they say we are hard to buy for, but we know that buying for him is no piece of cake either…well actually cake might be a good idea and you can find some of that at the Market from West Side Bistro too (their cheesecake is amazing). But alas, wrapping the cake ahead of time and placing it under the tree may present a challenge and you may wish to eat the cake yourself. Either way, here are just a few man-gift alternatives.
This is a first in a series of posts that is aimed at guiding you to find just the right gift for everyone on your list. The New Glasgow Farmers Market has something for everyone and in every budget!
Why is buying local so important?
Well it’s like this, all items at the Market are hand made, baked or grown locally, they are not imported. By purchasing from one of our talented artisans or producers, you are directly supporting a local family and by proxy, the community at large. When a producer or artisan sells their items, they have to go make, bake or grow more. By doing so, they are putting money back into the community when they buy their supplies. Whether it’s supply stores, feed stores or other local shops, it all supports the community and promotes healthy economic growth in our County. That’s why Farmers Markets are a sustainable and very important part of the future.
The beauty of it is that you are giving a very special gift that was handcrafted with love, thought and care to give to someone special and the people on your list deserve nothing less.
Think outside of the big box!
As we begin, please keep in mind that we do have new vendors that come time to time or are new and may not be showcased here and there’s many more items than we have space to show, so that’s why it is important to come to the Market every week, you never know what hidden gem you’ll find!
