Magnolia Landing

Please share to help spread the word.
These signs are going up today in Magnolia at the public landing. The amount of Kayaks and Skiffs left at the landing has got out of hand. 2 weeks ago residents and GFD members were wadding in the water fishing out kayaks and skiffs that were heading out to sea. When these boats are found unmanned and adrift it is automatically assumed that someone is in distress sparking a search and rescue mission for the USCG and local harbormasters. Starting spring of 2020 the Gloucester Harbormasters office will have modified kayak rack storage a Magnolia landing. If you are interested please go to the City of Gloucester’s website Departments>Harbormaster>Wait List> Apply> Magnolia Kayak Rack and follow the prompts. For more information please contact the Harbormaster Office.


Love at The Magnolia Community Farmers’ Market

On September 15, 2019 was the Magnolia’s Community Farmers’ Market last Sunday of this season.  It was so much fun and successful.  On Sunday the Cape Ann Animal Aid brought a beautiful puppy named Dobby.  Love this photo of the love that puppies can bring.  This little girl was adopted to her forever home.

Magnolia Farmer’s Market

A reminder from the Magnolia Community Farmers’ Market

Just a reminder, this Sunday is the final market 😢  Couple things…

Don’t forget that immediately following wrap up, as soon as the street is open again, we plan to head to the pub for an end-of-season toast! First round is on us!

So far our list contains the following vendors:

Marshalls Farm

Eclectic Clam

Breakwater Roasters

Classic Cooks

Cape Ann Animal Aid

Jodie M Tupperware

Sharon Lowe Photography

All Purpose Flowers

Rocky Shores Glass

Riverbend Bowls

Donna Arizona Photography

Bonnie Breads

Dancing Daisy Bakery

Magnolia Library

Designs By V

Four Directions Integrative Health

Inspire Bar and Fitness

Still Tides Massage and Spa

Agape Brew Community

Tony Fronteiro – Musical guest

The MCFM Committee will be setting up our own independent table to host the raffle. We will collect names, emails, and phone numbers. Guests need not be present to win. Classic Cooks has most generously offered us a GRAND PRIZE donation, consisting of a Thanksgiving Dinner for 6, delivered hot and ready on Thanksgiving day. This raffle ticket will be separate from the collection, as we plan to use it as a fundraising opportunity to benefit additional advertising for next season! We hope that throughout the day on Sunday you will entice your customers to visit our table to sign up for the raffle. Prizes will be pulled during the final 15 minutes of the market. In the next 24 hours, I will be posting a flyer and an event on our facebook page and we encourage you to share and post about it to build a broader audience for this week!

We could not be more proud of the 2029 Magnolia Community Farmers Market team and we are so fortunate to call you all our friends. Thank you for a wonderful season! See you all on Sunday!

In an effort to celebrate our success, we would love to turn September 15, the final market of the season, into a bit of a block party. We’d like to make it fun for the customers and vendors alike. We are hoping to put together a free raffle for customers and are asking vendors to participate by submitting an item as a fun prize. By handing out raffle tickets we will be asking for customer email to create a mailing list for our website (under construction) to better construct our advertising plan for next season. Our idea is that our musical guest, Tony Frontiero, will announce some winners of free give aways in the final hour. (Customers need not be present to win, but it would be nice; we can take the reigns on prize notification after the market closes if need be). We will be working with Classic Cooks to obtain a one-day permit to serve/sell mimosas on the street throughout the morning. If you are a food vendor, it would be nice if there were a few extra free samples available to keep the merriment flowing.

At the close of the market, we would truly love to have all our vendors join us for an end-of-the-summer toast at the Pub (JD Meyers and Friends) to congratulate us all on our amazing summer!
