Any markets on Thursday?

    The Brookline one is excellent; I also use the little one in Brigham Circle because it's across the street from my work.

      Brookline doesn't open until 1:30.

        Yes, but it's open "till dusk", which is extremely handy for those of us who can only get there after work, i.e., around 5:30 or 6. The Fish Lady is often sold out by then, so if you're interested in buying from her it pays to get on her e-mail list and pre-order, and it can be dicey getting just the cut of meat you want from River Rock and Stillman's, but there's still plenty of produce at that time of day.

    2. If you are in Cambridge, there is a very nice Farmer's Market, but small, at Kendall Square. Produce, Baked goods, Taza chocolate, maple products, goat cheese, etc. Link below. It's not a destination market, but if you are close by it is very pleasant.

      p.s..they also have a Berklee Jazz concert playing in the patio while the market is out. Really great place to have a picnic lunch, especially today!

      1. Dewey Square is open Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 11:30am to 7pm.

        1. Melrose had a crowd at 10 this morning.

          1. Belmont Farmers' Market is Thursday afternoons.
