The Last of the Vendors for 10/14/12

I love you pumpkin! Almost as much as the Mayfair Fall Festival.
Have you started fasting for tomorrow? Doing stretches so you can sprint all over the final 2012 Mayfair Fall Festival and Farmers' Market Preview? Got your game face on ready to stampede the cupcake stand, push that little old lady out of the way for the last baguette and then celebrate your dominance with a gourmet chicken cutlet sandwich and a beer? Go get em' tiger!! But try to leave some goodies for the rest of us.

What am I saying? There's going to be PLENTY of stuff throughout the day.

 High atop my list of place to visit are any vendors serving and selling wine or beer. We have 2 wineries coming tomorrow for your purchasing pleasure. You already got to meet Cardinal Hollow Winery so now it's time to unleash the awesomeness that is Desiato Winery. Luigi 'Louie" Desiato from Pipersville, PA will be bringing a taste of Italian wine to Mayfair. The Desiato family planted their first grapes in 1993, and they are focused on doing things naturally — growing grapes without pesticides and recycling the rainwater for irrigation. They also run "Mamma D's Restaurant" which was recently featured on the Food Network show "Restaurant Impossible."

Mamma D's Restaurant

I've decided I'm having a caramel apple for breakfast. Hope of Hope's Sweet is a local girl from Castor Gardens who is just starting to branch out as a confectioner. She's bringing a bunch of her homemade caramel apples and some homemade candies on Sunday. Is there anything that screams fall festival more than a delicious, crispy and gooey-sweet caramel apple? If there is, I haven't seen it! Make sure you stop by and see Hope and her sweet goodies!!


Jenna our wonderful face painter from the last Mayfair Fall Festival is back and she'll be assisted by the lovely Erin to paint all the adorable faces of your kids! It's completely worth the wait for that little smile that lights up their faces when they see Jenna and Erin's handiwork.

Donna of Caricature Art, Murals and More by Donna will be at the Fall Festival tomorrow doing her art. You know your mother, mother-in-law, or *fill in the blank relative* who are IMPOSSIBLE to shop for for Christmas, would love a caricature of you, your significant other, your kids, your dog, you name it. Donna can do it! Make sure you sit for her and walk away with the memories of the best Mayfair Fall Festival EVER!!

Painting pumpkins with Republic Bank!
Republic Bank, who are the sponsors of the Mayfair Fall Festival/Farmers' Market preview along with the Mayfair CDC, are getting into the fall spirit by hosting a pumpkin painting table for the kids. The pumpkins were purchased from our friends at Stern Farms and Republic is supplying all the paint and decorations for you! Bring the kids over to this great little activity! Republic is also working in conjunction with Animal Care and Control (ACCT) of Philadelphia to co-sponsor a dog adoption table. If you're looking for a new best friend you may be able to find him/her tomorrow at the Fall Festival. Then you can make sure to buy your new pal some gourmet dog treats at the Philly Dog Biscuit Company and the day will be complete!!
I bestow on you a kiss and I will name you 'Mayfair'.

Throughout the day enjoy the musical stylings of some of Philadelphia's finest musicians. Mr. Jason Cohn just returned from a European tour and local boy, Herb Oakley will be singing and asking trivia questions for prizes!! So grab a beer or coffee, unwrap that cupcake, take a seat and soak in the atmosphere.
