“Pocket-sized and covetable, Christine Chitnis’s Markets of New England is a delightfully fresh guidebook chronicling the quirks and  histories of crafts and farmers markets throughout New England.” — The Maine Magazine

“Here’s a nifty little book to tuck into the glove compartment or tote bag. Rhode Island author Christine Chitnis has compiled a list of outdoor crafts and food markets around New England with photos, addresses, times and dates for the entire spring/summer/fall schedule…pick this colorful gem up for those weekend drives…” — Cape Cod Times

“Chitnis provides the vibrant color photographs that depict New England in its summertime glory.”  — Pittsburgh Tribune-Review 

“… The number of small farms (fewer than 50 acres) is growing, and they can use our support. Christine Chitnis has come to the rescue with a charming, useful, pocket-size guidebook, Markets of New England. It should be a a model for other regional guides since it covers food as well as its kissing cousin, crafts. Chitnis makes a heartfelt case for using “our collective consumer power to support artisans — beekeepers, cheesemongers, weavers and woodworkers.” I couldn’t agree more.” — Dominique Browning, The New York Times

“Readers will want to grab a tote bag, jump in the car, and head out to browse among the organic grains, clams, and homespun yarn. Boston’s hip Bazaar Bizarre, for example, promises it’s ‘not your granny’s craft fair’ and offers items leaning toward the indie and punk. The book’s small size is just right for tucking in the car for a spur-of-the-moment weekend jaunt.” – Library Journal
