I am a born and raised Bostonian and of course I love supporting made in Massachusetts products. When planning my sister's wedding in Paris, France I wanted to bring a small token of appreciation to everyone in Paris who helped plan our stay and the wedding itself. I decided to make small gift bags of products made here. Here's a few of the artisans I researched and bought from as well as a few others who I have been known to buy for myself.
Mayval Maple Farm is located in Westhampton MA. They sell delicious maple syrup in a variety of sizes.
Taza Chocolate in Somerville MA makes Mexican chocolate style discs, bars, and chocolate dipped products.
McCrea's Candies is in Hyde Park MA and make smooth caramels in traditional flavors as well as unique ones like rosemary truffle salt.
Martha's Vineyard Sea Salt hails from a small family run farm on Martha's Vineyard in MA. The farm salt in a variety of sizes, flavors, and now in handcrafted sea glass jars.
Cape Cod Lavender Farm in Harwich MA is on my must visit list for this summer. June / July is their harvesting season and I'm hoping I'll be there for it. They have products for body, home, and of course for culinary purposes. I use lavender for my lemon and lavender cupcakes but I am dying to try their lavender marmalade.
Harbor Sweets in Salem MA has been a favorite of mine for years. Sweet Sloops are almond crunch toffee that are sailboat shaped and dipped in white chocolate. Watch out they are addictive!
If you have come across any fabulous Made is Massachusetts products that I should include I'd love to hear from you!
