Countryside Farmers’ Market Gift Guide 2013 ~ Week 1

~ erin molnar, assistant markets manager

Finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list can be exhausting. And we certainly don’t want you to be too exhausted to join us on Saturday morning at the Market. For the next three weeks, we are going to offer some inspiration to shop local and source some wonderful gifts.

This week we are featuring: Gifts from Countryside Conservancy!


There’s always someone on your list who simply has everything, or lives so simply they don’t need anything. What to do? They still need to eat, so stock them up with MARKET TOKENS. Countryside Market Tokens come in $5 increments, never expire and are good at all of our markets (Highland Square, Howe Meadow and Old Trail School). So, super flexible! Whether you are looking for a stocking stuffer or a major gift, you can make the tokens fit. 



We also have a wide variety of chicken swag for kids and adults. How can you resist a chicken onesie?? Note the tote. There are also car magnets, short sleeved shirts in multiple colors (kids, men and women), long sleeved shirts in a couple colors (men and women) and a very sporty chicken ball cap. 


For that altruistic recipient, consider making a donation to Countryside in their name. As a small non-profit, individual contributions make a huge difference to the programs that we offer and the impact that we can have. Visit here to donate or to see the difference that a personal or gift contribution can make. (Please contact Erin at if you are interested in a certificate to present to your gift recipient.)

We are also offering gift certificates for our 2014 Countryside U classes. The curriculum is packed with returning favorites, as well as new and exciting offerings. Local Meals for Busy People, Backyard Chickens, Bread Making 101, Fermentation 101, Home Brewing 101 – just to name a few. (Click here to see the whole line-up.) You can buy a specific class for your special someone, or simply choose a dollar amount that can be applied to the class of their choosing. Get in touch with Erin, at, to arrange. 

Somewhere in there is something that will cross at least one person off your list, right? Stay tuned next week for a curated selection of market products that make excellent gifts.
