Best Bets This Week


wine basketYour best bet this weekend is to spend those dollars locally. Sure you have some last minute gifts to buy, but why not start at the Easton farmers’ market and work your way through town  from there. We’ll take some fresh bread and local cheese, and toss in some homemade jam, thank you very much.  Is that a handmade basket over there? You get the idea. Much more fun to chat with farmers and crafters than deal with mall crowds, isn’t it?

A basket of cheer with local wines and beers is another option – also makes  a lovely hostess gift. Or consider a restaurant, theatre, shop,  spa, etc. gift certificate, museum membership…. This Spy would be delighted with a week’s worth of free lattes at the local cafe.

As far as entertainment this weekend, you’re on your own, unless you missed the opening of the Santa Diaries at the Avalon, which we highlighted last week. The musical comedy runs through this Sunday.

  1. Andy (and Talbot Spy) – thanks for the reminder about the Easton Farmers Market.
    Yes, this will be our final Saturday market until we re-open in mid-April. But you simply cannot find a more interesting, varied, and enchanting selection of last minute hand-crafted gifts . ..whether a bauble or an expensive gift, you’ll purchase it from the creator of it!
    Baked goods, holiday decor, fresh flowers, breads, meat & seafood, sauces & preserves, cheese – great for your own holiday meals or as “hostess gifts” for others as you go visiting.
    And, you’ll be able to see and greet your friends, our wonderfully loyal Customers and Vendors who’ve made this year so successful for us.
    Holiday Greetings from Easton Farmers Market to you all.
