The R&I Holiday Gift Guide
The gift guide for the farmers market devotee who frequents their local fresh market on the regular, from a hand-carved egg tray to a wire basket perfect for housing their finds during or after their market run. We are passionate about shopping locally, so these are gift ideas to inspire others to do so as well.
Veji Bag, assorted bags from $18.99 to a 3-pack for $53.99
Help prolong they produce from their daily market runs with a Veji bag made from 100% organic cotton that has been grown in the United States. All they have to do is wet the bag, rinse and shake it; in return, they will have fruits and vegetables that will stay fresher longer.
Make cleaning their produce easy with this stoneware bowl that can easily house berries in the summer to brussel sprouts come winter.
Cage-free eggs have a new home with this egg board that doubles as storage for the refrigerator or a display for deviled eggs. This beautiful board is hand-carved from New England wood ash.
It might be winter, but kick-start their garden with these clever push pop seeds packs that will attract birds, butterflies and hummingbirds come spring and summer. Plus, 10% of the proceeds from each sale will be donated to the Pollinator Partnership. The Pollinator Partnership is a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and promotion of pollinators and their ecosystems.
A very pretty gift for the herb lover in your life. These non-GMO seeds will grow plants, either indoors or out, adding extra flavor to meals or tea time.
These clever push-up packs will attract butterflies, bees and hummingbirds come spring and summer and deliver a dose of eye candy to your garden (or porch!). The Hummingbird Blend includes seeds like Rocket Larkspur and Perrenial Lupine; the Bee Blend contains Wild Bergamot and Lavender Hysop, while the Butterfly Blend includes seeds like Butterfly Milkweed and Dwarf Cosmos. This set would be a perfect stocking stuffer for the gardener on your list.
An ideal basket perfect for harvesting fruit or vegetables from the garden or displaying freshly baked bread purchased from the fresh market.
We love this book so much we are mentioning it twice. Tanis' new book is the ultimate companion when shopping at the farmers market. This would be a great gift for those just getting into the routine of shopping locally to those that do it all of the time. Separated by ingredient, it takes the guess work out preparing dishes with leeks to herbs.
Give them the gift of eternal summer with this candle inspired by the sunrise and the warm breeze through a garden. Housed in a pretty ceramic vessel, this candle will fill a space with a beautiful aroma that includes hints of geranium, rose and citrus.
