Birth Story

After an amazing summer meeting cloth diaper families at the Ipswich Farmer's Market in 2016, the owners of Pumpkin Vines LLC wanted to find a way to bring local cloth diaper families together to Buy, Sell and Trade their cloth diapers...
Not long after local cloth diaper enthusiasts rallied behind the cause and the Cloth Diaper Exchange went from an idea to reality. The 2018 Cloth Diaper Exchange has been integrated into the ​New England Parenting Sale & Expo. 

Pumpkin Vines Events

Local Events

​The New England Family Market focuses on buying local food and crafts while meeting local companies and non profits who value the community or enviornment. The day has a range of vendors so that you are able to meet a range of people that you can call on when you are in need of a product of service.  We understands that families come in many sizes and configurations and we strive for a range of exhibitors for all types of familes. 

Our events are usually Rain or Shine, there will be a range of indoor and tented activities for families no matter the weather. The New England Natural Parenting Sale & Baby Expo was conceived out of the need for the community to connect with like minded local businesses and non-profits. Based on a blend between the Farmer's Market and a Baby Expo, the  Expo & Market gives caregivers an opportunity to learn about sustainable products and services and community based organizations. Unlike so many other Craft Fairs & Expos this event is about selects speakers, companies and products with a local connection or that are 'green' or holistic.

The New England Natural Parenting Sale & Baby Expo was conceived out of the need for parents to connect with like minded local business and non-profit. Based on a blend between the Farmer's Market and a Baby Expo, the event gives parents an opportunity to learn about sustainable and natural parenting. This maternity and baby fair selects speakers, companies and products that can keep parenting, ecologically friendly, local and holistic.

We are focused on bringing up the next generation in a sustainable manner. Event participants can learn through 1:1 interactions and group information sessions. We believes that all parents need to trust their instincts; it is our goal as event organizers that all guests feel confident in their choices for their family. We respect that every family is unique.

Cloth Diaper Exchange

This is a unique cloth diaper event in New England for people come to buy, sell and trade cloth diaper products. At the day long outdoor market parents can also browse a range of vendors that have been selected for parents that care about natural parenting and local products.
We began the cloth diaper exchange because our area did not have easy, affordable access to cloth diapers. No one thought the North Shore had enough diaper addicts or a strong cloth diaper community. We hope this day long event helps to introduce families to cloth diapers in and around Eastern Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire.
We hope that this and future events will help to give back to the cloth diaper community in our area and shed a positive light on the cloth diaper culture and industry. This isn’t your average Baby Show where people just come to push products on you. Our event is a forum for families to buy, sell or trade cloth diapers while taking part in the
This is a family friendly conference and outdoor market and we want to make sure everyone has fun the entire day.
We are currently recruiting local businesses and community leader to run demonstrations, lead activities and have informational booths at the outdoor market.
