Don’t get stressed about shopping for your friends and family, the Old Town Farmers’ Market has you covered!  Pick up handmade goat’s-milk soaps from Amalthea Ridge, a bath bomb from Truly-Life, and a calming candle from Capital City Candle Company for a thoughtful spa-themed present.  Gift an heirloom quality cutting board from the veteran-owned Affinity Woodworks—you can also pick up a matching hand-crafted knife storage sleeve from Chef Folio while you’re here.  We have knitware, fabric craft and jewelry vendors every Saturday through the 24th.  Treat yourself and your giftees by shopping local this holiday!

Brussels sprouts are no longer the flavorless, boiled things your parents forced you to eat before you got dessert! With the right preparation they are delicious, seasonal, and something that even the little ones can enjoy! Find Brussels sprouts at Spring Valley or Gold Goose Farm and the recipe here.
