It’s a last fall fling before the holiday season officially gets under way!
The Denison Homestead will host an Open House this Sunday with costumed reenactors. If you have yet to visit us a the Denison Farmer’s Market, this will be the last one of the year. It will have a special harvest and pre-holiday theme, so you can pick up your produce for your Thanksgiving feast and a few hand crafted gifts for Christmas all in one spot — and add to that a special opportunity to tour the Denison Homestead, and you get the perfect way to spend one of our last “warm” days of the year! Temperatures are supposed to approach 60 with some sunshine peeking through!
Here’s the lastest from the market master:
It’s hard to believe, but it’s the last market of 2011! We have lots of fall vegetables, as well as pies and other Thanksgiving-related items, so come out to the market this Sunday between 12 and 3. We’ll have a few guest vendors to round out the market, and we’d love to see you one last time before our winter break!
In addition to the farm market, there’s a lot going on at the Denison Homestead this Sunday! Come see the newly-painted woodwork and power washed exterior of Pequotsepos Manor, made possible by a grant from the 1772 Foundation. There will be tours of the 1717 homestead with costumed historic actors. You can see cooking in colonial kitchen, with an open-hearth cooking demonstration of Stone Soup. Also, there will be a weaving demonstration on our original loom. Refreshments will be available in the house and donations will be gratefully accepted.
We’ll be there with our remaing fleeces. We’ll also have plenty of our Wacky Woolies for your stocking-stuffing needs.
And we have a few football-themed wackies, too. Also, the girls and I have been knitting scarves of all colors.
We’ll have sheep Christmas ornaments to grace your tree.
We’ll also bring our loom and spinning wheel so you can see what we accomplished yesterday at theFiber Arts Studio! Maybe you can try throwing a couple of shuttles through!
