It’s that time of year again – the Best of the North Shore‘s annual awards have been announced, and our Salem businesses and events have risen to the top again! We are especially excited for the recognition of those projects that Salem Main Streets had a direct hand in, including the Salem Farmers’ Market, the Salem Arts Festival, Salem’s So Sweet, and (to a certain extent) Haunted Happenings.

Check out this awesome list of Salem-based award winners, or check out North Shore Magazine’s website for a full list –  http://www.nshoremag.com/bons-2019.
