On the Saturday before Valentine’s Day, February 9, the Ashland Middle School Cafeteria will be transformed into a lively marketplace where neighbors and friends can gather to shop and shmooze.
Ashland Farmers Market (AFM) plans to host 20 food vendors and 12 popular artisans for an indoor midwinter market. Shoppers will be able to buy from many of AFM’s summer favorites: ShadyPine Farm, Jaju Pierogies, The Crust Bakeshop, Couet Fromagerie, Valicenti Pasta Farm, Everything Jalapeno, Anna Banana,The Fudge Lady, Take the Cake cupcakes, OMG Bagels, Hillcrest Apiary, SA’s Homestyle, Doris’ Peruvian Pastries, Nutty Bird Granola, Auntie Dalie’s Pasta, and Laszlo Dog Treats.
Valentine’s Day will be just around the corner, so shoppers can grab something for a loved one from local artisans: Jennifer’s Soaps, Guilday Glass, Domesticated Wild Child, Brookfield Candle, Two Orange Cats Jewelry, B Organic Bags, Pictures/Pottery ANew, and WoodBee Toys.
Artisans new to AFM, like Ukneek Knits and Tilia Klebnov Books, will also be there. Young ‘kidpreneurs’ will sell their own creative products at the winter market.
Eric’s Sharper Edge will be on hand to sharpen those dull knives and tools.
For those who get hungry while they shop, seating will be available in the AFM café area where friends and neighbors can enjoy crepes and cakes from La Maison a Gateaux and croissant sandwiches, pastries, and coffee from Dulce D Leche.
Make a Valentine for your family or sweetie! The Mom’s Club of Ashland will host a Valentine Card-Making Workshop from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
The next indoor Ashland Farmers Market will be held on Saturday, April 6, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the middle school cafeteria.
