After Superstorm Sandy there is no doubt everyone in our area has been affected. Now more than ever is a time for us to band together as a community and support each other. Although most of us are still in a fog after the Hurricane (at least I am!) it's time to start thinking about Thanksgiving, which is just a week away.
One great way to help our community rebuild is to source your Thanksgiving meal locally, to support local businesses. I've compiled a quick list of places you can shop for common Thanksgiving Day needs:
- Ort Farms-- We have freshly picked produce, home baked pies, local apple cider and more!
- Mini Mac Farms and Ashley Farms both offer local turkeys--we purchase our turkeys to feed about 50 members of the Ort Family from Ashley Farms and the quality cannot be beat! Great tasting turkey
- Long Valley Green Market--there are several food vendors that have something unique to offer, all locally sourced.
--Silver Birch soups and ready to go meals
--Homemade pasta and delicious cheeses from Fontanarosa's
--Organic Coffee from Black River Roasters (coffee for dessert)
--Lemon and Blue Cupcakes make a great dessert.
--Teas and spices from Grandma's Herbals
If I've left any local vendors out please post via comment section!!
