Nobody wants to be one of those super stressed out last minute shoppers, so avoid the feeling of being under the wire by scoring some extraordinary finds and shopping locally during Hayground School's "Homegrown for the Holidays" event.
"Now more than ever is a time to embrace and appreciate the talent and diversity of our local communities," explained Kerri Deuel, Event Coordinator. "What better way to show your support and solidarity than with your dollars while getting unique gifts for those special to you?"
Taking place on Saturday, December 3rd, "Homegrown for the Holidays" will highlight locally made artisanal goods. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., shoppers can peruse through booth after booth of impressive masterpieces from more than 50 local artists, food purveyors, and vendors.
The artisanal food and craft bazaar will feature handcrafted items by East End Light, Lavender of the Hamptons, Inlet Studios, Hamptons Handpoured, Sag Harbor Glass and Southampton Soap Company, as well as gourmet food by Stars Café, Backyard Brine Pickles, Fat Ass Fudge, Nofo Crunch, Farmer's Kitchen, Le Fusion, Mr. Vin's Bakery, Sagaponack Potato Co and Tom's Honey Bees. Additionally, fine jewelry, clothing and art by Danielle Leef Photography, East End Fish Prints, Vena Rico Designs, Fin Montauk and many more will also be on display.
"Come experience the creations and stories of more than 50 local food and craft artisans on the beautiful Hayground campus," added Deuel.
Along with the chance to cross off everybody on your holiday gift list - even the pickiest of recipients, the artisanal food and craft bazaar will also include crafts for kids, raffles for specialty items and live local music.
"Homegrown for the Holidays" was founded in 2010 to help drive holiday sales for local artisans. Proceeds from the artisanal food and craft bazaar will directly support local artists and business owners.
