This will be our third year at the Waltham Farmers’ Market. Brookie’s Cookies started 3 years ago for my yellow lab Brady, to give him treats that are healthy and to know exactly what ingredients go into his cookies. I enjoyed making them so much I thought it would be great to sell them at the Market.
I have samples at the table for the dogs to try before they purchase the cookies. They are made with peanut butter, pumpkin, oatmeal, eggs flour and milk.
My first Market this year I sold out of them in 2 hours! The best part of the market for me is to see all of the dogs and to share stories about the customers dogs and my dog Brady.
I named them after my 19 year old niece Brookie who lost her battle to Angiosarcoma 5 years ago.
We are a family farm, operating since 1980, providing Heritage pork, piglets, chicken, and duck. We’re building towards sustainability through diversity, taking the innovations of today alongside ideas of the past.
At Burnshirt Valley Farm, our own Free Range Heritage Breed Pork and piglets are rotationally grazed for the mutual benefit of pigs and pasture. We keep our own breeding stock, a heritage Tamworth boar, two Tamworth sows, and one China sow, which ensures the availability of healthy piglets.
From day one, the piglets are able to roam the entire farm, foraging for grass, nuts, and bugs. At eight weeks, they are weaned from the sow and moved to separate housing in large pens. The pens are moved once the ground has been thoroughly disturbed, bringing rocks to the surface and removing brush and other less desirable plants. The pigs are moved in this fashion until they reach market weight. We feed our pigs Poulin grain, which provides the bulk of their feed. They’re supplemented with local hay for additional winter forage.

The horticulturalist at Buzz and Thrive says that growing plants is his passion. “I’ve been working in greenhouses since I was 14 years old. It’s what I studied in college. Most recently, I was a horticulturist for six years at Tower Hill Botanical Gardens. I love talking about what’s new and exciting in the plant world, and I love providing helpful tips that I’ve learned throughout my career.
In 2015, I decided to showcase my passion by opening Buzz and Thrive Gardens. At Buzz and Thrive, you’ll see my excitement, care, and expertise in every plant.”

A FAMILY TRADITION. Sixty-five years ago, our Jaju started a Polish food business with his brothers and sisters in Western Massachusetts—hand-crafting pierogi, golabki, and kielbasa for their community. Fast forward to the ‘90s and you’d find us, Vanessa and Casey, spending our weekends cutting, stuffing, and sealing pierogi in the back kitchen alongside our elders.
Pierogi was a typical item on our dinner plates, something we took for granted. When we moved out to Boston for school and work, pierogi became more difficult to come by and we had to wait for deliveries from our mom. Friends talked of having to buy the mass-produced pierogi to get their fix! For us, that just wasn’t okay. We would have to do something about it. In 2015, we dug out our grandfather’s handwritten recipes and got to work, perfecting traditional, handmade pierogi for Boston.
We are the first mobile cold pressed, organic, and made to order juice bar in Middlesex County. We strive on producing one of a kind juice and smoothies using locally sourced, organic produce when possible. With the help of local companies that believe health and our well being is one of the most important things we have.
Unlike many of our competitors our smoothies have no fillers, purees, ice, sorbet, ice cream, frozen yogurt and no unhealthy sweeteners. Just 100% pure fruits and vegetables. Our Smoothies can also have your choice of homemade almond milk, soy, or cow’s milk added for a thicker creamier smoothie.
Allowing us to come to you makes everything easier. You don’t have to buy, wash, and juice at home. Cleaning the machines and coming up with juice flavors can be daunting. We want to make drinking organic cold pressed juice enjoyable. With so many health benefits and the convenience of buying our products where you are will be a life changer.
We are Powerhouse Juice, a 6 x 12 mobile concession trailer who goes to different locations daily, private functions, and you can even see us at local farmer’s markets. As a family owned organic mobile juice bar, we strive on serving the highest quality and locally sourced produce in all of our juices, smoothies, and Acai bowls.
El Recreo Estate Farm is a family owned and operated 364 acre plantation that has produced premium coffee for over 40 years.
The farm was owned by the Ferrey-Machado family back in 1972, but the land has grown coffee since 1905.
In 1992, El Recreo Estate used reforestation to upgrade the land and start an era of farming. The increased growth of infrastructure allowed a high standard coffee quality harvest and opened the market to international markets.
Since that time, and with a micro-climate that benefits an optimal environment for coffee growth, the estate has been a leader in promoting economic and social progress, keeping environmentally sustainable agricultural techniques.
In late 2011, Miriam (daughter of farm owners) & Hector Morales founded El Recreo Estate Coffee, Inc. They are dedicated to bring this high quality coffee to you straight from the farm.

Searching for New England traditions? Look no further than a picturesque spot in the hills of Winchendon, Massachusetts. Here at Smith’s, old fashioned family traditions and hard work are combined to produce our Farmstead Cheeses. Our Gouda rivals any made in the Netherlands. It has the same mild taste, creamy texture and small, bubbly eyes. An excellent dessert cheese, it is also great for cooking and melts beautifully.
Our cheeses and spreads are made from the freshest milk possible, just minutes after the last cow in our dairy herd is milked. The result is true farmstead cheese! Smith’s Country Cheese produces, not only the original farmstead Gouda in a variety of flavors, but also cheddar in medium, sharp, and extra sharp … and now our newest addition, Havarti. Anyone who recognizes the appeal of farm fresh milk will enjoy the rich and creamy flavor of our Gouda, Cheddar and Havarti cheeses. Unlike factory produced cheese, our Gouda, Cheddar and Havarti share much of the same characteristic quality, distinction and appeal as other hand-crafted culinary products or beverages.

Our story started with our arrival in North America, initially in Canada and then New England, where swissbäkers was established.
In ‘98 our kids stopped eating bread. Why – we asked? Being kids of bakers, they simply missed the crunch! So we reintroduced them to the “crunch” by baking Swiss breads and rolls in Helene’s kitchen. Helene and Thomas continued this tradition in the downtown area of Boston and then expanded their capacities and capabilities with the move to Boston’s suburbs.
Our credo is: No additives or artificial ingredients. All hand made. We can tell you that each product you buy was baked that morning.
The Warren Farm specializes specializes in the production of specialty food items, pure maple syrup, and maple confections. We grow many of the ingredients – fruits, berries, vegetables, and herbs – used in our unique line of gourmet preserves, savory oils, sauces, and baked goods, all made right here on the farm. The plants we grow and sell are started from seed in our greenhouses and gently raised by hand, using organic, IPM and non-aggressive methods of raising food. Our farm stand is open all year, though hours vary seasonally due to farmers markets, fairs, and other events that we attend.
