First, Arts & Crafts on Bedford is back and filling up the street this weekend. There will be 75 vendors selling all kinds of awesomeness from glass to wood and everything in between. I always manage to find some fun Christmas gifts at this event. Hours for Saturday are 10am-6pm and Sunday from 10am-5pm. There's no cost to attend, excellent people watching and activities for little ones (sponsored by the Nature Center and the Bartlett Arboretum).
Second, Fairway (699 Canal Street; just inside the cafe) is helping you put healthy food on your kids' plate with their Back to School Smart Start Event. On Saturday from 10am-noon, the store welcomes Dr. Carlton Colker, a nutritional consultant, with tips for planning, shopping and eating better. Dr. Colker is a local physician plus an author, TV personality, wellness coach and Fairway's health and nutrition consultant. There will be info on fitness and a Q&A with the doctor as well. And don't let all that education turn your kids off - there will also be some crafts for kids and an opportunity to try some of the healthy food options.
