Looking for some interesting gifts that come from farms and gardens, not a store?
A Holiday Indoor Market, set for this Saturday, Dec. 8, at 220 Overdale Rd. in Forest Hills, will have a variety of items from about eight vendors for gift giving and holiday cooking. The market will be open from 2 to 5 p.m. at the home of Elizabeth Donohoe, who started the event three years ago.
"This is our third market, and I started doing them to provide an off-season indoor opportunity for farmers and users of farm products to sell their products," Donohoe says. "Beekeepers, tea makers, bread and sweets bakers, veggie and animal farmers ...we have them all."
The market will feature:
- Honey infusions, honey, bee-based skincare products
- Late-season farm produce
- Free-range fresh eggs
- Naturally raised local chicken, beef and pork
- Specialty tea blends
- Vegan baked goods
- Wild-yeast breads, sourdoughs
- Natural skin and haircare from the garden
- Goat milk soaps with herbs and flowers
- Natural dog biscuits
- Dried hot pepper garlands.
- Natural skin care
- Fall farm vegetables
"I invite all of Edgewood Acres, where I live, but would like to extend it to the Forest Hills-Regent Square area," Donohoe says.
