This past Saturday Gail and I visited the Eat Boutique Holiday Local Market in Boston's Fort Point neighborhood. The one day event featured 15 regional food producers from as far south as Brooklyn, NY and as far north as New Hampshire and Vermont. Along with the great food vendors they also had four cookbook authors on hand signing their books. It was a great event with lots of delicious food and beverages available for sample and sale!
After circulating around the room, trying various foods, coffee, hard cider, and rum we were left with the tough decision of what to bring home with us.Salty Road (Brooklyn, NY), 1/4 lb of vanilla sea salt caramel from Suss Sweets (New Hampshire), vanilla and coffee goat's milk caramel sauce from Fat Toad Farm (Brookfield, VT), gluten free spice cake mix from Blue Egg Baking (Newburyport, MA), Cycledrome coffee from New Harvest Coffee Roasters (Pawtucket, RI), and a few Eat Boutique stickers!!!
Not a bad haul and a really fun event! I hope that it happens again, whether it's holiday time next year or before that I would definitely check it out again!
