The basket will include a box of Sirenetta Seaside Chocolatier’s Berries and Cream chocolates including Berry Smitten (fresh strawberry ganache in dark chocolate) and Vanilla Tryst (Madagascar vanilla white chocolate ganache in a dark chocolate heart shell) —- a clove cinnamon orange soy wax candle and artisan soap from Back to Basics Soaps — handcrafted wax candles from West Elm Farm — a coffee body scrub from S&B Apothecary — pure local honeyfrom Queen Bee Honey — and a bottle of local wine from Westport Rivers Winery.

Sign up to take this basket home at the market table, on your right as you enter the Accomack Building.

Vendor Update – Say Cheese, formerly Englenook Farm, is now in partnership with Shy Brothers Cheese of Westport, MA, adding even more delicious cheeses to Joanie’s local artisan collection of New England cheeses. Shy Brothers Cloumage was recently named by Bon Appetit’s Andrew Knowlton as one of the Top 10 food trends to watch this year

Take a look at this absurdly delicious recipe featuring Shy Brothers award winning Cloumage, Swiss Chard and Hazelnut…

Join Plimoth Plantation for a Tasty February Vacation on Tuesday, February 18th
Take and Bake | 10am
Make an apple pie to take home and bake. When the English arrived in New England, there were no apple trees here. They created orchards here as soon as possible – they really missed apples! You will learn all sorts of modern-day kitchen skills while you follow a 17th-century English recipe to make your pie!

Cook over a Hearth Fire | 1pm
Prepare a few familiar foods over an indoor hearth in the modern Visitor Center. In the 17th century, pancakes weren’t made from a box! Learn about interesting English recipes for pancakes and fritters, and how to prepare some deliciously different versions of foods we still eat today.

Additional childrens’ workshops are available each day of the vacation week. The fee for each workshop is $5 ($4 for museum members). Bundles of five and 10 workshops can be purchased for $22 ($17.50 for museum members), and $40 ($32 for museum members) respectively. Ticket bundles can be purchase here or by calling (508) 503-2653 or emailing

Cheer up though, there will be chocolate available…

    TRY THIS | How to cook a perfect Strip Steak (WITHOUT A GRILL)

    1 1/2 pounds strip steak
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

    Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. a half-hour before cooking, remove steak from refrigerator to bring to room temperature.

    Heat a large skillet over high heat. Pat steak dry and season generously with salt and pepper. We don’t use any oil or butter, but you can if you like. Cook steak until browned, about 3 minutes on each side (will vary depending on size of steak and remember dry-aged beef cooks fast!). Transfer skillet to the oven. Roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted sideways into the steak registers 120 degrees F for medium-rare, about 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer steak to a cutting board and let it rest for 10 minutes.

  • Allen Farms

    Pea greens for smoothies, salads, sandwiches, toss into pasta, toss into roasted root veggies, toss into a stir fry or into a pea green pesto…..

  • Copicut Farms

    This chilly winter weather encourages slow and savory cooking. We have been spending our days out on the farm but in the evenings we all gather around the table to enjoy dinner together. Lately our favorite meal has been oven-roasted leg quarters with lemon gravy, thyme seasoned quinoa, and a green salad. This time of year demands delicious food, come on by and get some healthy and happy food for your family.

  • Sirenetta Seaside Chocolatier

  • Plato’s Harvest Organic Farm

    Well this winter just won’t quit, eh? It’s been tough to do anything productive on the farm, but the endless stream of paperwork is ahead of schedule… seed orders placed, taxes done, field layout and planning done, organic certification paperwork nearly completed, and on and on. When or if the weather finally breaks, we’ll be ready to hit the ground running. The only thing that breaks the seasonally affected funk for me this time of year is the stack of seed packets on my kitchen table, and my old farmall cub, both of which provide the promise of possibility for a new season.

    Greens in the greenhouse have been extra slow because of the freezing temperatures, but I should have a fair amount of spinach and lettuce to bring this month. And my storage techniques improve each year, so I have lots of great looking and great tasting carrots, and potatoes to bring. And plenty of fresh eggs.

    Looking forward to seeing old friends and new this month in the Accomack building, so generously provided by our friends at the Plimoth Plantation. Know your farmer – don’t take food from strangers!


  • S & B Apothecary

    S & B Apothecary is now offering makeup!

    Try our new line of all natural powder foundation, bronzer and blush. Nothing artificial, no preservatives…be good to your skin :)

    SKIN CARE FOR THE COLD SEASON | Exfoliating is the best way to combat winter dryness.

    Our whole body benefits from exfoliation, not only our face. Exfoliation stimulates circulation and gets rid of dry, dead skin. Our salted coffee scrub provides a 1, 2 punch for exfoliation. The scrub is great for removing dead skin but the coffee stimulates the skin and helps to diminish the appearance of cellulite while the salt removes harmful toxins from the body.

  • Skinny Dip Farm

    Despite the serious winter weather, we have salad greens!

    Come early, they’ll sell out fast. We’ll have spinach, mixed greens, kale and chard. We’ll also have beets, turnips, watermelon radishes, sunchokes, potatoes and garlic. All certified organic and totally delicious.

  • Pain D’Avignon

    This month, in honor of Valentine’s Day, your friends from Pain D’Avignon have decided to sweeten things up a bit by bringing some of our delicious pastries to the market. We invite you to take home some of our Belgian dark chocolate Brownies, our Hungarian Shortbread with a Raspberry filling, or try any one of our five flavors of Biscotti. We will also try to coax our chef into whipping up a batch of his special hot chocolate. Mmmmm…..

    In addition to the Kobe Tourierres (French meat pies) and the Roules a la Saucisse (Pigs in French blankets) which have gained quite a following here in Plymouth, we will also offer a second vegetarian option along with the Fig Jam, Brie and Arugula Tartines which we brought last month. (Think …meat pies but with a spinach, ricotta and Portabello filling instead!)
    To top it all off, we will entice you with the February selection from our Bread of the Month Club…
    1.5 lb Heart-Shaped Chocolate Hazelnut Bread pictured here…

    How can you resist???
    So, come, shop, listen to some great musicians, and treat yourself or your sweetheart to some of the best food you’ll ever eat. And remember, if you cannot make it to the market, take a short drive to our home in Hyannis and discover all that we have to offer at the Pain D’Avignon Cafe and Boulangerie.
