The first settlers of Massachusetts were the Pilgrims, separatists and other groups, that came from England. The pilgrims were the first to celebrate Thanksgiving, an American holiday quickly approaching. Massachusetts grew with the settling of the Puritans, and continued grow as more settlers came. Massachusetts now has the two largest cities in New England: Boston and Worcester. 

Massachusetts is also home to 3 of our favorite vendors: Fruitations, Plum Island Soap Co., and New England Cranberry Company. 

Fruitations are Craft soda and cocktail mixers made with just 3 simple ingredients: fruit, water, and pure cane sugar. That's it! Its like pure bottled fruit!

Plum Island Soap Co. was born out of the love a mother had for her family and friends. Michele Diodati made homemade soaps and lotions for her loved ones and the business grew into what it is today. The Man Can is one of our favorite products!

New England Cranberry Company was founded in Massachusetts in 1994 with the goal of creating innovative, natural, healthy and exciting cranberry products that made great use of the state’s native crop.
