In addition to celebrating the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday with lots of cranberries and cranberry infused items available from our market vendors, we’ll have a cranberry related kids activity AND a couple of GREAT cranberry recipe demonstrations.  Come learn a new way to share this local crop with your Thanksgiving guests, sponsored by Balanced Rock Investment Advisors!

CRANBERRY RECIPE DEMONSTRATIONS!  You’ll be able to get virtually all of the ingredients at our market for these recipes:
Join us at 11 or 11:30 for a Black Pepper Cranberry Chutney
12:00 or 12:30 for a SPICED APPLE CRANBERRY SAUCE

 

 

Come down to the Brewery Project from 10 – 2 to check out the new digs.  You’ll be able to grab a complimentary cup of coffee (sponsored by Ula Cafe, now our next door neighbor!), browse some fantastic fall produce, and get all of your fixings for a great LOCAL Thanksgiving meal!

MOVE INFO: Starting on November 1, 2014, the Egleston Farmers Market will be moving into the Brewery Complex!  Due to scheduling conflicts with Parish Hall over the coming winter months, we determined it would be best to move the market and keep our regular schedule.  We are partnering with The Urbano Project and will be setting up shop in their fine space, right across from the Sam Adams Brewery entrance!
