Copley Market Today in the rain

BostonZest Sep 26, 2008 09:32 AM

In case you are wondering, I just came from the Copley Market and a few of the vendors did show up, despite the storm. Missing are Atlas, Stillman's (in case you were going for meat) Hamilton, Keown and a few more.

Siena, Old Friends, Iggy's, McArthur's, Dick's, and Crystal Brook were all there with plenty of stock.

Siena had cookbook author Amelia Saltsman signing her Santa Monica Farmers' Market Cookbook while I was there. But, they are going to move her to Sofra in Cambridge (where it is dry) for the rest of the afternoon.

She's great, loved chatting about food with her.

    Just got back from Copley.
    Boy, imho, you can't beat Dick's prices on his fine produce.

      Atlas was there on Tuesday, I think. I could very well be wrong. But they were there pretty recently.

      I'm buzzing htrough there in a minute. Hopefully someone will still be open.

        Atlas was there on Tuesday, I picked up some delicious tomatoes and cauliflower.

          I would expect everyone to be back on Tuesday. I just wanted folks who might have thought the storm would cancel the market (as has happened in the past) to know that some of our farmers were there and to alert anyone who was heading there for meat that Stillman's took the day off.

          I was going to go stuffed peppers with ground lamb tonight but since the lamb wasn't there I picked up some ground turkey at TJs and made it with that. The peppers from Siena were fantastic. They were so fleshy that I had a lot of stuffing left over!
