10 Steps to Preparing a New England Holiday Meal


1. Visit a farmers market near you and get your fresh fruits and veggies.

2. Only allow the freshest cranberries and ciders to grace your table.

3. Visit local specialty shops in Northern New England and Southern New England for cheese, olives, condiments and more.

4. What could be better than a delicious loaf of freshly baked bread to accompany your meal? Find bread near VT, ME, and NH here. For MA, CT, RI click here.

5. New England has a great selection of regional wine and craft beer. Hec, you can even get coffee that’s roasted in New England. Load up on the good stuff.

6. Don’t forget to support your local fisherman. Local fish shops can be found here and here. Oysters, anyone?

7. Don’t have a whisk? Broke the carrot peeler? Forget the big box store, visit a locally owned cookware shop instead.

8. Of course, you’ll want to finish your fantastic meal with a great piece of pie or other favorite baked goods. And, what’s pie without ice cream?

9. Let’s face it, the day isn’t done until you have a piece of locally made chocolate from up North or maybe you’re further South.

10. Don’t want to bother with cooking, find a farm-to-table restaurant near you that’s opened on the holiday.
