Quick update for all our SNAP/EBT customers! First off, our apologies for not having an alternative system in place to process your transactions when our EBT machine finally died last week – not the way we wanted to start off the season! Fingers crossed, we SHOULD have manual vouchers by tomorrow’s market – they are currently winging their way to us via FedEx. The vouchers are a much slower process but it at least provides us with an option to accept SNAP. Please bear with us in the meantime while we wait for our new machine to be approved and delivered. Hope to see you tomorrow!

You met some real cool folks last week. We have another batch of folks for you to meet this week too. Here are the newcomers to the Summer Market that will be here on Thursday:
Beverly Bees Raw Local Honey and Beeswax Candles. And make sure to ask them about bee and wasp removal. Are you thinking about keeping bees? They’ll talk to you about that too! (Taken right from the Facebook page.)
Pigeon Cove Ferments Out of Gloucester. “Pigeon Cove Ferments sauerkrauts are made with locally sourced cabbage from Northshore Massachusetts farms and our salt is harvested from the North Atlantic ocean.” (Taken right from the Facebook page.)
Mia’s House of Sweets Out of Beverly. Baked goodness.
Jaju Pierogi Out of Gloucester. “Sixty-five years ago, our Jaju started a Polish food business with his brothers and sisters in Western Massachusetts—hand-crafting pierogi, golabki, and kielbasa for their community. Fast forward to the ‘90s and you’d find us, Vanessa and Casey, spending our weekends cutting, stuffing, and sealing pierogi in the back kitchen alongside our elders.” (From their website.)
Hannah’s Herbals “hand crafted herbal products made with high quality ingredients. I make my products in small batches to ensure freshness and quality. I am committed to environmental sustainability. I use certified organic and ethically sourced ingredients. I don’t use preservatives, colorants, or synthetic fragrances. My packaging can be composted or recycled.” (Taken from their website.)
