Frittering Away

Through vending my Squish Marshmallows, I get to meet some amazing vendors. One worth checking out is Frittering Away. They’re making small batch, delicious beverages here in NYC. Offering their signature Strawberry Basil Lemonade year round, they also have seasonal flavors, including some hot ciders (above photo with a Where’s Squish edition, find the little Gingerbread squish).

I had their Chai Pear Cider. This was incredible, and the perfect drink in the cold winter. You get the tart crispness of pear, and a really nice hit of spice from the chai, bringing a great combo that’s a little sweet and spicy, guaranteed to warm you up.

And then, I had to pop in a Gingerbread marshmallow to soak up all that Chai Pear Cider goodness.

Hester Holiday Market

One of the most fun places to get all of your holiday shopping done in NYC is at the pop-up holiday markets. There are a handful of great ones, like Artists and Fleas in Williamsburg, that I’ve vended at, but one worth checking out is the Hester Holiday Market at One Penn Plaza.

There are about 30 amazing vendors there at the convenient and famous 34th Street right near Macy’s, Penn Station and Madison Square Garden. There are booths selling handmade jewelry, accessories, art and artisanal foods and beverages.  I’ll be there selling my Squish Marshmallows (follow on Twitter and Instagram to see what dates I’ll be there) there, by the bag, holiday gift boxes, and even by the piece with the option to have your marshmallow roasted.

I’ll also be sharing my booth with two other amazing vendors. There’s Jam Jar Bakery, selling all natural, made from scratch, pies in little mason jars. They’re ready to eat and super delicious. I even wrote a a previous post here

Also at at the booth is JLR, fun, whimsical pop-art paintings and designs. These are beyond fun and adorable and make incredible gifts for others, or, great artwork for you to hang up in your own space. 

You can find a full list of all the other great vendors here.
