‘Tis the season, but gift giving doesn’t have to be stressful, and it definitely doesn’t need to be devoid of meaning. Here’s 4 great gifts you can buy (there are so very many more) at the Winter Farmers’ Market this Saturday, 12/14/13, at Exeter High School (and again next Saturday in Rollinsford on the 21st.) The market is open 10am to 2pm, but your gift will bring joy to your giftee for much longer than that [cue corny but legit holiday spirit].
Gift the market itself
Market tokens come in $5 increments and can be spent with any vendor just like cash. They’re gift certificates good throughout the whole market, but a lot more fun. Because they’re wooden tokens! Share your love of the markets and the awesomeness that is our local food scene in the winter with a cute gift bag filled with any quantity of tokens you like.
Gift local seafood!
NH Community Seafood will be offering gift certificates at the next two markets (12/14 in Exeter, 12/21 in Rollinsford). You can purchase any cash amount you’d like or purchase a full half or quarter share of fish. Give the gift of 2 months of NH wild caught, dayboat fish. CSF seasons starting June 2014.
Give the gift of cheese.
It’s sort of like the gift of life. Because it’s cheese. Wolf Meadow Farm has cheese baskets available, call ahead to place your order (978) 201-1606. They’ve got gift certificates, good in Amesbury at at the markets they attend. They are also offering a cheesemaking class with Luca. This will take place on December 18th at their Italian-style facility in Amesbury. You’ll be making Primo Sale and Ricotta with Luca. $60/person, 6-9pm. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
Gift happy mornings.
Both coffee and tea drinkers, basically anybody who has to wake up in the morning, will appreciate a bit of White Heron in their lives. Cutey gift packs, great unique and new choices, fair trade and awesome people to boot.
Bonus round! Give a tote bag.
We know, we’re sneaking a 5th idea in here for you. That’s how much we love you. Every year we put out a new design on our super collectible fun tote bags and everybody wants one (limited edition!). Here’s what makes these even more awesome: these tote bags are made right here in NH by a woman owned company out of recycled fiber and recycled soda bottles. Take that plastic!
