When Pigs Fly & farmer's markets
Does anyone know which farmer's markets When Pigs Fly goes to? I was downtown last Thursday and grabbed a baguette from them which was a knockout. Not a traditional Parisian French baguette by any means but a tremendous loaf of bread in a more country style- great crust, really great flavor- my new favorite loaf in the Boston area. Paired with Kerrygold butter and prosciutto, it made a knockout of a European-style sandwich. Sad part is that I probably won't ever get downtown on a Thursday any time soon.
Their websites list their stores, but not which farmer's markets they attend. Neither Boston-area stores is especially convenient to me so I was hoping to find a farmer's market to to open up my options.

They are also at the Harvard U. Farmers' Market at the Science Center at Harvard. I bought from them yesterday. They are there every Tuesday.
Indeed, they are in Salem on Thursdays. I bought a loaf from them on a very rainy day. While I bought it (potato onion), I noticed they were *throwing out* a ton of bread because the bread got wet in the storm. After a bit of begging on my part, they gave me a baguette that was supposed to be thrown out. Well, it was barely damp and absolutely delicious.
If you like olives, try their olive bread. It has a nice crust, and is really dense and chewy on the inside, with lots of olives and some hot pepper.
