Last Minute Holiday Shopping? Almost Home and the Rocky Dale Christmas Shanty Have It All in One Place: Bristol, VT

There are many who will tell you that the only place to go for coffee and scones every morning in Bristol, Vermont, is the Almost Home Market. They will also tell you that the only place to get that great last-minute gift for the home and garden is Rocky Dale Nursery. You don’t have to travel far to do both! Ed Burke and his trusty elves have set up the most wonderful Christmas Shanty right outside the Market on North Street in Bristol. Linda Hanson and her crew of wondrously talented chefs and bakers cater all year long to an ever-growing loyal following who come from far and wide to purchase incredible edibles of every sort (smoked trout and horseradish pate, pasta arabiatta, Italian wedding cake…) as well as gifts for the kitchen, pantry, and bath. There is not a more inviting destination especially during this season. Inside, amaryllis are ready to bloom for your holiday table and outside on the porch are gorgeous wreaths and swatches and swags of greens for the door and mantle.  The Christmas Shanty is filled to overflowing with gifts for gardeners and and trimmings for the tree.  So, this week, visit Bristol, just east of Route 7 on Route 17and 116. Stock up on goodies for parties and family gatherings, decorations for the house, get a cup of coffee, and sit out by the fire with Ed for a bit and enjoy the snow.  See Photos here:
