Little-known fact: the modern holiday party has its roots in ancient Rome, when an emperor once held an ugly-sweater party for a gathering of festive gladiators. Today, your boss might try to have a fun holiday office party, with bonding exercises and white elephant gifts, but don’t you just count the nanoseconds until you can go home? The food is meh, the punch is even worse, and that guy from Accounting always comes dressed as Cousin Eddie, which is super cringey.
Fortunately, we have the cure for the boring seasonal shindig: our annual Taste of Tradition holiday parties! Three nights in a row, one party in each food store, featuring tons of delicious free samples all over the place. Look for local foods, ciders, eggnog, specialty goodies, and plenty of fine meats, seafood, and cheeses. Come hungry! It’s enough to make a meal, our gift to you.

Our TOT parties have been an Upper Valley tradition for more than 20 years. People come from all over to enjoy the good food and fellowship. It wouldn’t be possible without our great local vendors, who take time out of their busy schedules to serve their wares. Thanks, vendors!
Families and children welcome, of course. We look forward to seeing you there.
