Farmers' Markets, Farm Stands, CSAs etc. Early July

The strawberries are coming to an end. The blueberries are on a lot of stands and I can't wait for the corn, big heirloom tomatoes and Saturn peaches.

Are you shopping the farmers' markets for the July 4th Weekend?

        The Friday market has the same manager so you might be able to get a reply from her if you drop by on Friday.


      2. I just went to Belmont and I have to admit we are in a little bit of a lull. The strawberries are over, the cherries are over. And the raspberries just look so lonely out there. Less greens than usual. Some of the harder stuff making an appearance like summer squash and zucchini. I picked up some Carlisle Honey to make another batch of granola . Also bought some caramel yum... I mean rum sauce.

        Can't wait for some peaches!

            Thanks for the list, Penny! I've been dying to get to the Revere market. I read they have seafood. Has anyone been there?

              Haven't been to Revere, but they have seafood at Winchester. We've tried the trout, crabmeat, and haddock.

                Thank you for the information about Winchester FM. I went to their web site and Love the vendors listed. We pickup at Connors on Sat. AM so have to try to fit Winchester into the loop.

              Wakefield is supposed to open tomorrow, I believe. Yup, here's their website:


              I hope to get there first thing before an appt. in Melrose.

            3. Peaches and red and white currants at Arlington Farmers' Market today, and corn from western MA. The egg lady has moved down to the bottom, I panicked at first when she wasn't in her usual spot.
