The Finnish Center at Saima Park

Fitchburg, MA




Fall Tori at Saima Park in Fitchburg, MA on September 8th could not have had better luck with this day!  It was a great event regardless from which angle you wanted to look at it.  The weather was more summer like than fall like.  Young or young-at-heart, the great selection of wares offered by both near and far vendors, artisans, artists and bakers had something to offer all visitors.

Finnish folk music filled the outdoor pavilion while people browsed for sweaters, porcelain and glassware or why not something to satisfy the sweet tooth?

Even small accordion players made great music! 


Inside the Ravintola, the sales of food and refreshments was brisk all day the hot dogs, beef stew, coffee and pulla disappeared quickly.  A tasty treat was the Arctic Sundae vanilla icecream topped with Lingonberry preserve or Cloudberry preserve or why not both?

No fall market is complete without some animals for the young ones to look at and pat we had a goat and some really cute pigs for the kids to fawn over.

The organizers and people who worked the Fall Tori want to thank everyone who participated or visited Saima Park that day we had great fun and it was very rewarding to see that people really enjoyed themselves.
