OXFORD—This Saturday, join your neighbors to stock up your kitchen, enjoy a “Local Lunch,” and discover sweet and savory Valentine pairings of food and spirits at the Oxford Winter Farmers’ Market, Feb. 6, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Parish House Community Center of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Oxford.
What goes well with Flour Power’s raspberry scones? Sandy Stacey of Black Bear Winery recommends their Sweet Amos with notes of apple, raspberry, and strawberry. Blackberry wine pairs well with La Maison Blanche’s chocolate mice, and Cherry-Currant wine is a delicious complement to Pete’s Tapenade on melba-toast crackers. And try dunking a Holler Farm almond biscotti in Maple Dream for a sweet ending to a meal.
Market vendors will offer a full array of fresh produce, dairy products, eggs, pasture-raised meat, baked goods, maple syrup, honey, and handcrafted items. New to market: L’Amour Toujours with handmade Valentine’s Day cards, jewelry, artisanal soaps, and shea-butter body creams. And come to market hungry—Chef Dan is fixing up a hearty stew with rabbit sourced from our very own Hare & Feather Farm for this month’s “Local Lunch.”
Come find true love in all things local at the Oxford Winter Farmers’ Market, this Saturday.
