Farmer’s markets (berry nice) by ddelcourt

This morning I took a walk through the farmers market. I always seem to be busy during the 11am-5:30pm market, but today I had to have a look. Fresh vegetables, fruit, local baked were just a few of the delicacies I found. At their roots, farmers markets represent just about everything I seek out in my shopping. They promote a local economy, offer the freshest, healthy produce and often are a much more friendly environment to shop in then your average large supermarket chain. Today, I spoke at length with one of the farmers (Farmer Al) about the blueberries and raspberries he had. He proudly pointed out they were pesticide free, organically grown and tasty to boot! I bought a quart of each and can vouch for their flavor.

If you don’t know of the farmer’s market nearest you, check out the USDA’s farmer’s market map. Of course, this is a great resource but is in no way exhaustive. Local coffee shops or book stores have postings here in Boston. In the meantime, I’m polishing off the remainder of the blueberries and raspberries, waiting for that stomach ache around 8 this evening.
