We’re gathering our favorite handmade food makers and several cookbook authors for a Holiday Local Market on Saturday, December 10, 2011. The event will take place from 11am-5pm at Made in Fort Point, a huge gallery space at 12 Farnsworth Street (next to Flour Bakery) in Boston’s Fort Point neighborhood.
The holidays are meant for giving, and we’ll have the perfect food gifts for everyone on your list. At this market, you’ll be able to:
- Meet local handmade food makers and cookbook authors
- Taste their delicious sweet and savory treats
- Shop for gifts for your friends, family and yourself, which we’ll also wrap for you!
This market will be set up less like a farmer’s market and more like an afternoon open house where you can mix and mingle with your favorite food makers and hear the stories behind the food. There will be a large gift wrapping area where we’ll box and wrap any items you plan to give as gifts.
We're pleased to host the following food makers:
- Suss Sweets, Nashua, New Hampshire
- Nella Pasta, Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts
- The Salty Road, Brooklyn, New York
- Fat Toad Caramel, Brookfield, Vermont
- Lark Find Foods, Essex, Massachusetts

We’re also delighted to host:

And, we’ll host the following cookbook authors:
- Judy Rosenberg, the founder of Boston’s five Rosie’s Bakeries and author of many cookbooks, including her latest The Rosie’s Bakery All-Butter, Cream-Filled, Sugar-Packed Baking Book (appearing from 11am-12pm)
