CORN, GRAPES (YES, GRAPES!) APPLES & MORE

Finally! There’s a hint of fall in the air and no rain in tomorrow’s forecast. Bottom line, it’s a perfect day for the Elm Street market! We’re welcoming a new vendor, Lanni Orchards, bringing back Horizon Line Ceramics, and have Newton’s own Border Street Band providing entertainment. There’s no better way to spend a Saturday morning in Newton than outdoors at the market!

If you missed meeting Aisling Colleary and seeing her work in July, you’re in luck because she’ll be back at the market on Saturday, September 1st. Aisling is a Needham-based ceramic artist who loves plants and indoor gardening, and creates ceramic plant pots and hanging planters under the label Horizon Line Ceramics. With an artistic philosophy centered around being creative with greenery and reconnecting with nature, her minimal use of glaze is designed to compliment both the natural raw clay body of the pots and the color of the plants that will ultimately sit within. All of Aisling’s pots are handmade, glazed and fired at her Needham studio. You can see her work on Instagram here!
Lanni Orchards, Inc. is a Lunenburg-based farm, started 50 years ago by Pasquale Lanni and his sons. Today the farm is operated by third and fourth generations of the Lanni family. Some of the produce they grow include: apples, peaches, pears, corn, squash, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and the best red champagne grapes we’ve ever tasted. Seriously, these grapes should be at the top of your shopping list. Lanni Orchards will be at the Elm Street Market every Saturday through the end of the season!
