Deciding what type of cookies to leave out for Santa on Christmas Eve? I’m sure Santa wouldn’t mind any of these store bought cookies-- in fact they will guarantee you a spot on Santa’s nice list this year.What makes a Christmas cookie? Anything dunked in chocolate, sprinkled with nuts and filled with dried fruits or spices counts.
As the frigid winter air blows and snow begins to fall, the season of summer markets comes to a conclusion. Since many fruits and vegetables are no longer in prime season and vendors would rather avoid the cold of outdoor markets, a number of summer markets--including Boston University’s farmer’s market and SOWA, a popular market located on Harrison St. in the South End--have ended. But this conclusion is not the end of the farmer’s market season: a number of winter farmer’s markets will soon be popping up. Plus one of them is close to campus. Just a 20-minute walk from West Campus.
