Whether you are again cooking the Turkey bird yourself, or buying a pre-cooked one from a grocery store, or just going to grandma’s house for Thanksgiving, we’ve got a suggestion on how to make it a fresh experience. The Salem Winter Market takes place this Saturday, Nov. 18th from 1-5pm at the Witch City Mall (formerly the Museum Place Mall, 1 Church Street) featuring seasonal produce from local farmers. Make the side dishes and the rest of the table stand out!
In fact, a diversity of local vendors will be present at the Winter Market this season. Patrons can expect to find an assortment of foods and artisan crafts including seasonal produce, pasture-raised poultry, locally-caught lobster, baked goods, wreaths, handmade soaps, honey, pickles, gourmet ravioli, and artisan chocolates.
“The Winter Market is a fantastic opportunity to support local farms and artisans through the holiday season, and is a chance to find some truly unique holiday gifts,” states Kylie Sullivan, executive director of Salem Main Streets and organizer of the market. “We’re also very excited to showcase our vendors in the Mall again this year, where we can complement and highlight the variety of great year-round tenants in the mall.”
The Salem Winter Market is a seasonal extension of the Salem Farmers’ Market, this year scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 18th and Saturday, December 16th, both from 1 pm to 5 pm.
The Salem Farmers’ Market and Winter Market are organized by Salem Main Streets, thanks to the support of the City of Salem and Mayor Kimberley Driscoll, the Salem Chamber of Commerce, Destination Salem, Creative Salem, and many other local business sponsors and community volunteers.
