CAFM ‘Holiday Fare’
Cape Ann Farmers Market raises seasonal spirits to new levels with its first annual ‘Fare for the Holidays’ on Dec. 20, from 4:30 to 8 p.m. (downstairs) at Gloucester’s Unitarian Universalist Church. This special indoor farmers market gathers glorious gifts for home and hearth and brings them right to the heart of historic downtown — the best of local produce and crafts and a beautiful bounty of Cape Ann culinaries for festive holiday shopping with late afternoon and evening hours to accommodate busy schedules. Warm up with hot cider, coffee, mac n’cheese, chop suey; then take a chance on some great raffle prizes to help support our historic host icon, the UU. (located at the corner of Middle and Church Street; CAFM’s ‘fare’ is downstairs, handicap accessible).
