After you pop into Stellwagen Beer Co. (or another local brewery) for a couple of pints, you’ll inevitably want to pair your delicious beer with a sweet and salty treat—for this, look no further than Amy’s Yams sweet potato chips, a bright spring snack.
Amy’s Yams was established in Quincy by Amy Hannan, who is originally from southern Florida and whose daytime job is in the education sector. It was the classic entrepreneurial story: a weekend hobby that turned into a full-fledged small business. Amy now frequently sells her chips at local farmers’ markets (including Marshfield and Hingham) and brewery events, and she even ships the chips on demand through an online shop!
The chips are made from the highest quality organic sweet potatoes and contain no artificial flavoring. They are also gluten-free and vegan. There are currently four seasonal flavors: OG Salty, Cranberry Crunch, Spooky Sweet, and Purple Spice, priced at $5 or $6 depending on the flavor.
Follow Amy’s Yams on Instagram and Facebook to catch what farmers’ market they’ll be at next. If you can’t make it to a market, simply order some online!
