The Festival maps are now online! Includes a schedule of events, over 50 participating businesses (plus 30 makers in our Holiday Market). We’ll have them in print for the weekend! Go to www.rockportmakers.com to view the whole thing!
On my way to Ace hardware in Rockport this morning, I passed Rusty and Ingrid’s beautiful print shop and noticed a very cool Rusty and Ingrid graphic in their front window–about a new holiday festival called the Rockport Makers’ Market. I just had to stop in and find out more.
Rusty took a few moments from his super busy morning to explain. “This is the first event of its kind in Rockport. We are creating an on-trend holiday market (like the one’s we sell at in Boston), and we are combining it with a town-wide festival in Rockport. Ingrid and I designed the concept of the event and we are doing most of the production. We are even hand printing much of the event decor in our shop.

Rockport’s quaint Lattof Farm has expanded to include Lattof Farmhouse Kitchen. I have been trying to get there for weeks to try their avocado toast, the quiche, or their sweet salad but I haven’t been able to make it yet. My boys are dying to try their smoothies….Strawberry Banana, PB Rescue, or Seasonal Splash.
I just missed the kitchen hours the other day, but I stopped to browse their gorgeous produce and snapped photos of the Farmhouse Kitchen menu for keeping. I am hopeful that tomorrow will be the day I can stop by on the way to work and you can bet I’ll update you on how delicious my breakfast was….and, I know it will be because I’ve heard so from many a townsfolk!
For now though, check out their farm stand and menu!
Lattof Farms is definitely a Rockport treasure and we’re so lucky to have them conveniently located on the way in and out of town on Main Street!
The first 6 photos are from their Facebook page…and are the reason that I can’t wait to get back to the Farmhouse Kitchen.
The other photos I snapped in the farm stand while admiring the abundance of fruits and vegetables.
Lattof Farmhouse Kitchen is located at:
205 Main Street, Rockport
It is open Monday-Saturday, 7:00-2:00
THIS EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!
Additionally Sherri Casey from the Rockport Garden Club writes: All RGC members and guests are welcome to attend our July 9 evening meeting at the Rockport Art Association. This should be a beautiful, informative talk by Kim Smith titled, “Beauty on the Wing: Life Story of the Monarch Butterfly.” The evening starts at 6:00 with a wine and cheese reception followed by Kim’s presentation. If you would like to attend but do not drive at night we can arrange for a ride. Please contact Sherri Casey.
