Indian Orchard Bazaar to Celebrate National Cuisine

INDIAN ORCHARD, Mass.—St. Gregory Armenian Apostolic Church members will hold their annual Armenian Bazaar on Sat., Oct. 19 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., in the church hall at 135 Goodwin St.

Lunch and dinner will feature three kinds of grilled kebab –shish kebab (delicious chunks of lamb), losh kebab (specially seasoned ground lamb and beef), and chicken kebab (marinated chunks of chicken breast)—all served with rice pilaf, salad, and pita bread. For lighter fare, visitors can order lahmajun (a delicious thin-crust Armenian meat pizza), or a vegetarian plate of seasoned cracked wheat, salad, and pita bread.

A baked goods section will feature traditional Armenian breads and pastries, including paghach, choerag, paklava, boerag, and kadayif, along with other Armenian foods, such as stuffed grape leaves, cheese and spinach pie, and pickled vegetables. Many favorite homemade desserts will also be available.

Baskets overflowing with wonderful gifts for adults and children will be raffled off. Bargain hunters will have the chance to peruse the “Forgotten Treasures” booth, filled with crafts and collectibles.

The highlight of the event will be five raffle drawings for prizes, including a 3’x5’ oriental rug donated by Charles Yenian & Co.; a ladies’ watch; an Armenian coin donated by Gary Setian; a handmade clock made and donated by Harry Setian; and one year of Megabucks lottery tickets! The drawing will take place in the evening of Oct. 19. Winner need not be present.

The event is free and open to the public; parking is also free. For more information, call the church office at (413) 543-4763.
