Market meets vineyard
Wine tasting highlights farmers market products

 The Salem Farmers Market and Appolo Vineyards of Derry will join forces on Friday, July 21, offering a flight of wine paired with foods from other market vendors. 

Appolo, a regular vendor at the market, will host the tasting outside on its crush pad, and guests will be able to tour the vineyards as well. 
“At the market, it’s about sales. People are there to shop,” said Molly Cartier, marketing coordinator for the Salem Farmers Market. “At this [event], the vendors can have people try their items in a context that’s more about networking than sales. People can meet the vendors, interact and try their products in a more casual setting.” 
The cocktail party-style event will feature multiple tables set up with various hors d’oeuvres, and servers from the winery will be making the rounds with samples of Appolo wines.  
The food selection will include Alpine cheese, goat cheese and other cheeses from Temple-Wilton Community Farm and Brookford Farm of Canterbury; Tuscan herb and garlic olive oils and Sicilian lemon and honey-ginger white balsamic vinegars from Celeste Oliva of Concord; autumn honey from Tewksbury Honey; and French-style baguette bread from Chantenay Patissiere Bakery of Fremont. 
“These aren’t the kinds of items you would typically find at a grocery store,” Cartier said, “and it’s a very different experience than you’d get at a store, because you can learn different things about the food that you wouldn’t otherwise know unless you talked to the people who make the food and know these items well.” 
Guests will have a choice of wine flight with five or so Appolo wines to complement the food offerings. A variety of red and white wines will be featured, including the newly released Bridesmaid 2016, which won a bronze medal at the 2017 Big E Wine Competition last month. Bridesmaid is made with 100-percent New Hampshire grapes and is described by Appolo as “a light, sweet white with floral and honey notes on the nose followed by citrus, honey, and apricot.” 
Proceeds from the event’s ticket sales will go toward a special prize to be raffled off to one of the market’s vendors; the winner will have his or her vendor fee waived for a full market season. 
“It’s something we really wanted to do,” Cartier said. “It’s a way for us honor our vendors and celebrate them.”
