Written by Tyler Blance, Marketing Program Coordinator – Local Local_event image   We’re celebrating local again: Saturday, February 27th , 2016 from 10am-5pm in our Wilton, NY Market 32! The greater-Wilton, New York, area is home to unique local farms and producers, with Saratoga Springs offering a wide variety of favorite locally made products. We’ll have folks from Olde Saratoga Brewing Co, Saratoga Peanut Butter and Saratoga Chips in the house to chat with shoppers and offer samples of their homegrown products. Also in-house will be Nettle Meadow Cheese of Warrensburg and Tiashoke Farm of Buskirk, a Cabot Creamery dairy farm! The area is home to multiple family maple farms, and since late-February rings in maple sugaring season in the Northeast, we’ll be featuring samples of New York maple syrup! Local producers Mapleland Farms (Salem, NY) and Sugar Oak Farms (Ballston Spa, NY) will be attending to chat with guests and sample their syrup, made from trees tapped just a few miles from our store. In addition to offering samples, they’ll be demonstrating the maple sap collection process using real maple farm equipment. Also on the roster for our Wilton celebration are the folks at Flavor of Schenectady, a coalition formed to promote local food featuring Mastroianni Bread, Casa Visco, Pede Brothers Pasta and Gatherers Granola. As a fellow homegrown Schenectady brand, we’re excited to team up with Flavor of Schenectady! Find them on Facebook here. Check out the list below to see who else will be joining us for Wilton’s Homegrown Market Day. And if you’re in the area on the 27th, come on down to meet and greet with some of our homegrown friends from the region! We’ll be celebrating local in other stores going forward: Stay tuned as we round up the local crowd in other parts of the Northeast! Appearances Schedule
