‘Tis the season! Shop the MaryLovesLocal holiday market on December 1st

It’s my favorite time of year!

Time for the MaryLovesLocal holiday market, where I get to bring the best artisans the area has to offer to one place, dine on delicious local fare, sip on wine and mocktails, and spread Christmas cheer for all to hear.

Our largest-ever lineup of local makers will provide fun and unique goodies for everyone in your life. We would LOVE to have you at the market in Quincy this month, where we will have a curated selection of presents perfect for parents, spouses, teachers, friends, and that one cousin you don’t even really like.

There will be drinks. There will be snacks. There will be shopping. There will be rockin’ burgers. It will all be totally awesome. Details on when and where on the flyer below, and keep scrolling to learn more about the amazing vendors we have coming.

Crafts, gifts and Home Goods

Lexi Mayde, Quincy: Lexi DeConti will be bringing her collection of homemade watercolor greeting cards. She also does calligraphy and custom stationary made to order.

Salty Hands, Weymouth: Ashley Hanson turns oyster and seashells into beautiful ornaments, ring dishes and other goodies! All of her work is ocean inspired and can be customized with the help of a local calligrapher.

CLN+DRTY, Kingston: CLN+DRTY is a line of organic skincare that takes an all-natural approach to traditional skin problems. Their products include oils, face masks and spot treatments.

Al LaFrance, Weymouth: Al is a wood turner who makes custom pens from wood, acrylic and other materials. His hand-turned writing instruments are a perfect gift – especially for hard-to-shop-for dad!

J. Lobes, RocklandJessica Nicholson is a mother of two and lover of all things retro. She makes clay earrings that are reminiscent of 60s and 70s styles, as well as those that fit with the season.

Emily Russ Ceramics: Emily Russ makes functional stoneware pottery heavily influenced and inspired by her New England roots!

Bark Club, Weymouth: Bark Club is my absolute go-to for all things pet! They do grooming and more, but my favorite thing is their seasonal toys and adorable selection of dog greats for literally every occasion.

Salt and Branch, Quincy: When I visited Melissa Mengel’s home for candle making last year, it smelled exactly like Christmas is supposed to smell. These hand-made candles are the best and come in a variety of scents and sizes!

Miss Lou Makes, Plymouth: My long-time internet friend, recent IRL friend Jess makes the cutest jewelry for the most perfect wrist stacks. She’ll have tons of options – and maybe even the stack I invented!! – at the market.

DotBeeCo, Dorchester: This woman owned, family run business is obsessed with all things beeswax! Their uniquely shaped candals would be a great gift for any nature-lover or conservationist.

Food and Drink

Pops by C, Weymouth: Cristin is the most creative person in Weymouth, I swear. Her cake pops are so cute – from simple designs to imaginary animals, there’s nothing she can’t do. She’ll bring a selection of sweets and take orders for future birthday parties, family gatherings and holidays!

Mr. Butterscotch Bakes, Scituate: James Kukstis will bring a seasonal selection of homemade and hand decorated cookies for sale, and take custom orders for future events!

Sweet Mama Sauce, Halifax: It’s sweet, but spicy. Subtle, but flavorful. New, but classic. This small batch hot sauce is sure to be a hit with anyone who likes a little extra kick.

Rockin Burgers, Weymouth: You just can’t go wrong with a good burger, and everyone knows it. Rockin’ Burgers is a 50s diner-inspired food truck that serves up inventive sandwiches, fries and onion rings! They will be parked right outside the market entrance.
