The Art of Meaningful Gift Giving, How to Preserve a Child and some Yummy Market Fresh Recipes

We're at the time of year when everyone is in a hustle and bustle of the Holidays.  For us the Farmers Market is filled with beautiful gift items and our market friends are all too happy to stop by and pick up that beautiful, one of a kind, hand crafted item to give their loved ones.  There's an art to gift giving.  Some folks like the idea of gift cards- quick & simple and they don't have to worry about the 'did they like it or not?'  Others love the thrill of searching and finding just the right thing for that special person.  Then there are those that take the time to actually create something unique for each individual... and all three are fine! I don't think there is any wrong way to give a gift, especially when it's given with love.  We are all different and we need to do what fits our personalities... and those that love us will know that whatever the gift is, it was given with heart. I hope this post will help all of the above and you will find something that helps you in this typically crazy time of year.  [Read More]

Schedule of Events!

Hello all!

I just got done posting all the awesome events that we have planned for you this winter season at The Old Winery Market. Please take a minute to go through all our events and be sure to add them onto your calender.

We will have monthly Cooking Demo's presented by some of the area's finest chefs. Each month we will again feature a special day for the children. The Farmington Public Libray and Farmington's Heritage Nature Center will be on site at each one from 10am to noon doing free nature acitvities and reading fun stories for the little people. 

I think it is so important to bring the children out to the market. They need to learn where their food comes from... meet the folks who grew those tasty Brussels Sprouts... raised those beautiful, humungous brown eggs... talk to the guy who cut those tomatoes to make the salsa... laugh with the lady who made the brownies... chit chat with the couple who melts the wax and pours it into those pretty jars that smell so good. 

Market going is a way of life... a destination that shouldn't be an option... a place to go and hang out and meet friends and lounge for a while and visit in the lounge catching up on the weeks events.

Take the children over to the Market Lounge and grab a board game and spend some time, real quality time with your little ones...

I love the market and I want you to love it too...

See you there,
