A few markets offer special one-day-only Holiday Markets that

My Daughter’s Favorite Flavor of Spinning Spider Chevre

take place this Saturday and on upcoming Saturdays. (See Schedule Below) Some Tailgate Markets are still ongoing as usual. Many Tuesday/Wednesday markets have their last official market day the Tuesday/Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Some markets feature a number of ongoing Holiday Market days. You can go directly to the Markets tab to check out what’s going on with your favorite neighborhood market…or see below for a concise list.

Don’t have time to make it yourself? Buy something wonderful that is made with love…at the Tailgate Markets. Think ahead.  Support a local Tailgate Market vendor instead of a grocery store for truly homemade foods. Plus your loyal farmers/vendors have to buy Christmas presents for their families too, right? Order something delicious and homemade for Thanksgiving dinner – savory or sweet – apple and pumpkin pies, and incredible breads and crackers, come right to mind. Gather up some traditional root vegetables. One of my favorite Thanksgiving treats ever was Red Russian kale sprinkled with artisanal balsamic vinegar…very yum! Oh, and remember the eggs for making savory corn pudding.

SCHEDULE

Includes One-Day-Only Holiday Markets, Ongoing Holiday Markets, and upcoming Last Market Days. See Markets tab for additional location info.
