We are delighted to have several vendors participating in the the Fairy House Festival taking place THIS weekend, September 24-25th.
With the fairy walk and all of the other activities and excitement of the festival, it's very easy to build up an appetite. While we welcome folks to pack a picnic lunch, you may wish to save room instead for the fresh fare on offer from two special locally-based food vendors participating in the festival.
It doesn't get more local than MKT: Grafton, our hometown's star newcomer. The modern general store, located on Grafton's Main Street, will be selling an assortment of delicious fare at the festival this year. Lunch will be served both days from 11am-3pm at their festival booth; fairy lunch boxes and an assortment of fresh salads will be on offer for purchase. Visitors will also find a wide range of fairy themed snacks, thoughtful souvenirs, and lots of local food products.
Regarding the market's enthusiasm for the festival, co-owner Ali Hartman explained, "As a big believer in magic, our store is thrilled to be serving up goodness at the Fairy House Festival! The festival weekend turns our little town into a whimsical, wonderful adventure and is one of our team's favorite events of the year!"
Returning vendor Jamaican Jewelz Catering, based out of Rockingham, will be serving a selection of freshly prepared plates, including jerk chicken and other Jamaican cuisine favorites. Owner and chef Julian Perkins says she looks forward to the weekend because, "The festival means peace & tranquility to me and my family." She added, "It's two days we get to spend enjoying the company of others who share our beliefs in fairies and nature."
In addition to all the tasty fare that will be available at the festival, we are excited to welcome back talented body artist and face painter extraordinaire Mona Frye of Springfield, Vermont. Don't forget to stop by her tent!
The Nature Museum and our vendors can't wait to welcome you to the fest! See you soon!
