6 Vendors to Watch Out for This Winter

Wake up from your hibernation and make the trip down to one of Fredericton’s many markets this winter! Whether you need to stock up on weekly groceries, or it’s time to tend to that dreaded holiday checklist – here are some of the many talented vendors you might not want to miss on your next visit to the Fredericton Boyce Farmers’ Market.

From Scratch Bakery

Make a stop at From Scratch Bakery to pick up some fresh, homemade bread produced, well, from scratch! Friendly vendor Georgina Gere brings family recipes all the way from Germany and years of bread-making experience to her stall at the Boyce Farmers Market. Each loaf is carefully crafted with quality ingredients and passion in the three-day process it takes before they hit the market. Make sure to taste one of the delicious scones, which customers say are a must-try!

Coburn Farms

The Coburn family has 212 years of apple farming behind them, and has been selling at the market for 4 whole generations!  Whether you like it hot or cold, Coburn Farms’ apple cider is sure to hit the spot. With 15 varieties of apples on their farm, each batch contains at least three different varieties. Plus, cider isn’t all they’ve got in store! You can also get your hands on some cran-apple cider and apple syrup, maybe a new addition to your family’s traditional holiday meal?

Fromagerie au fond des bois

Practice your French with this next vendor, who formerly organized events for the King of Belgium! However 7 years ago, Didier Laurent found his true calling on a goat farm in Rexton, NB. He now raises his own goats, horses, chickens and cows, and takes pride in selling his artisanal goat cheese at the market. He’s got every flavor from cranberry to seaweed, so you’ll be asking for “more cheese, please!” to complete your next cheese platter this holiday season!
