Holiday Specials Adorn Washington Farmers’ Market

Washington area -

WASHINGTON – Holiday Specials Adorn Washington Grange Farmers’ Market from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4 at Evening Star Grange, 31 Old Union Road between Downtown Gallery and Gibbs Library. For more information, call  Sharon at 845-2140.
This is the second annual seasonal celebration when the Market and others businesses in town get together to offer their best. Special lunch selections will also be available from the Evening Star Grange Grill.
New this year will be an exciting collection of hand-made items from The Common Thread, a group of area women who participate with their babies in Gibbs Library’s Music and Circle Time one morning a week. During the quiet moments there, they discovered a shared interest in crafts and have been practicing together weekly. Their creations include needle-felted fruit and vegetable ornaments, a Nativity scene, gnomes, felted wool ornaments, hats and toys, silver jewelry and many other seasonal gifts and decorations for the home. Amy Donaghy, Dayle Tognoni, Eri Pate, Sasha Kutsy, Joanie Dean and Chrys Delorimier will be happy to show you their handcrafts.

Other guest vendors will include Market favorite Natalie Gardner of Golden Apple Potters with some of her exciting new work. Natalie is happy to talk with patrons about their own ideas she might help transform into clay. Brazier Wire Products will offer their super-tough trap-wire bird feeders in many ultra-durable sizes and shapes. Yvonne Taylor of Black Locust Farm and Pixie Day from Sleighbell Farms will be on hand with their popular selections of delicious goat products. Black Locust offers luxurious cashmere yarn, jewelry, pelts, pillows and catnip mice. Chevon – an increasingly popular meat choice from goat – is available as kielbasa, teriyaki, pepperoni, and summer sausage. Yvonne has a nice assortment of recipes to share, too. Sleighbell Farm’s pure and simple Neufchatel-type goat cheese comes plain or herbed and is a perennial favorite.
