‘Tis The Season!

I work only a few blocks from Downtown Crossing in Boston and a walk through the carts and shops available there is always worth the time. Today I wandered up and happened upon a holiday market going through December 24th. It felt like Christmas with wreaths, trees, holiday music and treats.

The market doesn’t have to be about your long term shopping if you handle that online or elsewhere. Several vendors were familiar to me from the Dewey Square Farm Market including the Swiss Baker, Q’s Roasted Nuts and Pigs Can Fly Breads. I have brought food from all three back to office for everyone to try! I tasted three flavors of honey any of which would make a great pairing with some goat cheese and crusty bread for an afternoon snack.

All sorts of gift items including prints from local artists, hand knit winter hats & gloves, jewelry and other selections were represented. If you live or work nearby it works out to a nice way to support local businesses and have some fun.

( We go with a fake tree, and ours is up already! )

Happy Holidays!

You have no idea how jealous I am that you work in Boston.. it's quite possibly one of my favorite cities! Especially during Christmas!
