Mayfair Fall Festival and Farmers' Market Preview--10/14/12

So you're ready for the second Mayfair Fall Festival and Farmers Market preview right? You've been salivating for a sandwich from Lil' Dan's, cupcakes from The Sinful Cupcake and Cafe, and you're already scraping the bottom of the jars of honey you bought from Mill Creek Apiary and Philadelphia Bee Company? Yeah, me too. Well it's this Sunday, 10/14/12 from 9am to 2pm on the 3500 block of Ryan Ave. (near Frankford and Cottman).

While we have many of the the same vendors as last time I recommend you review the following links to refresh your memory and taste buds:

You know Sunday is going to be great for doing some pre-holiday shopping. Wine always makes a great gift to have on hand for company that drops in or even to give away as gifts to those people who surprise you with an unexpected present. Stock up with the wines from one of the two wineries that will be there on Sunday.

Chris Boyd of  Cardinal Hollow Winery from North Wales, PA will be bringing several selections of his wines. Chris is a first generation wine maker and according to his website, alcohol is in his genes. His grandfather come over from Europe and settled in Syracuse NY back in the 1920's and apparently, to make some money, he modified a V-8 Oldsmobile and would run moonshine from Quebec down to Syracuse. So basically Chris is related to Nucky Thompson and is clearly awesome. Chris made his first batch of wine in 1995 and today they are making over 25 different wines and producing over 2,000 gallons of wine a year. Come out to try his famous Jalapeno wine!


The clamor for coffee was so great after our first Fall Festival that we went on a hunt for a local barista. Luckily we didn't have to go too far to find Lisa and Bill of Great Awakenings Cafe who were recommended to us by several of their friends who are Mayfair neighbors. They will be serving up hot coffee, iced teas and coffee and some pastries. They are only there from 9-11pm so get it while it lasts!!
