Fall Suprises—September 14th @hellomakersmarkets


I have to be honest, I love fall—the beautiful colours, the warm sun mixed with the fresh cool breeze, the sunflowers, zinnias, and mums, and of course everything caramel and pumpkin spice. I think one of the best things about fall is the unexpected—the surprise warm afternoon later in October, the striking harvest moon that graces the autumn night sky, the unexpected fire flies at dusk, your first smell of woodstove smoke of the season, and the reminder of the how much your taste buds have missed the apple, pumpkin, and pecan pastries. Does that not just warm your heart?

We got an unexpected surprise this week—a surprise that truly warmed our hearts. We were invitation to join a very talented group of organizers and artisans at the @HelloMakersMarket fall market in the lovely town of Uxbridge. To say we are beyond thrilled is an understatement. We are so excited to join this community of makers on September 14th.

For us, fall is a wonderful time of year to be at a market because fall is often considered charcuterie board season. Now for us, charcuterie board season is all year round and maybe we’ll post a few ways to use your board every season over the next year, but we know for many just purchasing a new board, fall seems like the right time to spread that grazing platter out with all your favourite gourmet snacks. If that sounds like you, we encourage you to come by the market on the 14th and check out a few of our boards. We’ll be happy to share our favourite tips for setting up a great spread.
