Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Experience a quintessentially American summer—a village-green, homemade-ice-cream, corn-on-the-cob kind of summer—exploring the fifty vibrant farmers’ and artisan markets profiled in Markets of New England. You’ll find picture-postcard settings, delicious food, and unique crafts down every ribbon of highway. In Massachusetts, make your way up the coast to Cape Cod, where markets feature baskets of blueberries and flats of oysters still dripping with saltwater; hop the ferry to Sustainable Nantucket’s picturesque farm stands; or journey inland to an art festival nestled in the Berkshires. In New Hampshire, attend a lakeside workshop and a market held on New England’s largest town common, in the shadow of a classic white church and steeple. Meander across Vermont during an open studio weekend, or to Maine for a clam festival, a county fair, and craft guild shows. Even tiny Rhode Island has pleasures aplenty: an oceanfront gourmet food tasting, an indie art fair overlooking Narragansett Bay and Newport Harbor, and more. Markets of New England leads you to the local delicacies, the most interesting purveyors, the products of community supported farms and fisheries, the standout crafts and artwork, and provides all the details you need to know, including off-season schedules. The food and crafts are filled with local flavor, the settings pure New England, and the itineraries provide enough delights to fill an endless summer. 

Synopsis:

People across the country are discovering the immense pleasure that can be had by living a thoughtful life full of farm-fresh food and handmade possessions.  This return to the “good life” is reflected in our country’s increasing interest in buying locally grown and produced goods, and there is no better place to ‘shop local’ than at neighborhood farmers’ markets and art events.

 

With this in mind, Christine Chitnis has crisscrossed New England (Maine New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut) discovering farmers markets and crafts markets, sometimes stretching the concept of ‘markets’ along the way to include open studio days, a one-of-a-kind floating farmers’ market (held on a sailboat), a community heirloom plant sale, and a wide range of artisan events.

 

Fifty of the most vibrant, unique and thriving events in the region are described and lavishly photographed.
