Whether you're shopping for mom, grandma, your mother-in-law, or even a friend, you can head to the Brookhaven Farmers Market this Saturday to find something unique for that special woman in your life. Here’s our list of ideas sure to show Mom you care:
If you want to pamper her – Let Mom take a trip to the spa from the comfort of her own home. Exceptional selections of handmade and all natural body scrubs, facial polish and face masks by Oh Honey! Skin Care or baskets with natural soaps, bath salts and whipped butters from Luvin’ My Soaps can be enjoyed week after week adding a little extra luxury to mom’s long days.
If you want something traditional – You can never go wrong with flowers on Mother’s Day and Yang's Cut Flowers has gorgeous bouquets that are sure to make Mom swoon. If you want low maintenance (because doesn’t Mom do enough already?), get her a gorgeous succulent from Eden’s Easy Beds.
If she has a sweet tooth – Make Mom’s mouth water with delicious cookies from Curly Sue’s Cookies or candies from CC Brazilian Sweets. With classics like chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin and unique treats like twisted turtle and carrot ginger, you are sure to find a flavor that will suit any mom’s sweet tooth!
If she loves trying new things – With so many great artisan and gourmet products available at the market, why not put together a gift basket for Mom of locally made items for her to enjoy. Fill the basket with a howler of Banjo Cold Brew Coffee, crunchy pecans from Pearson Farm, Antonio's Fresh Pasta, some honey from Hometown Honey, a jar of delicious Golden Bay Chutney, and olive oil from Strippaggio. You can also throw in a piece of handmade and beautiful jewelry from Pink Scorpio for a nice touch inspired by peace, love, and soul.
If you want to give her a night off – Mom would love a night off from kitchen duty, so take the lead and prepare her an amazing farm-to-table meal with locally sourced ingredients from the Brookhaven Farmers Market. To make the meal extra special, do a surf and turf theme with meat from Brasstown Beef or Double B Farm's Heritage pork and shrimp from Tom’s Awesome Seafood. Pair your entree with some seasonal veggies and some crusty bread from Fat Lady Baker or Bernhard’s German Bakery. Finish it off with a picturesque pie from Pie Local.
All these vendors will be at the market this weekend so come to shop for yourself and get something special for Mom.
Happy Mother’s Day!
