The summer farmers' markets are opening and CSAs are delivering.
SOWA, Copley, City Hall, Dewey Square, Prudential, Cambridge Center, Cambridge Central Square, Charles Square, JP, Davis Square & Union Square Somerville, Kendall Square Are already open.
Roslindale opens tomorrow with all the wonderful shops and dining spots in that area as another reason to go.
I've had some fabulous greens and hoop house strawberries from my Atlas Farms Market Share at Copley. Seta has added some great pita to her selection and there fresh fish is showing up at a few Boston markets over the next few weeks. And, it is great to have a regular supply of Iggy's bread in the neighborhood again.
What market are you shopping and what have you seen so far this year.
Are you in a CSA? Give us a report
Are you visiting a farm stand, pick your own, etc? Pass on what you know!
Did PYO at the farm on Sat and got strawberries (4qt), basil, parsley, catnip, and assorted peas. Also purchased a 1/2 of pink cherry tomatoes for $4.
1 bunch swiss chard
2 head lettuce
1 bunch pearl onions
1 bunch parsley
2 lb summer squash
A little disappointed that we didn't get the endives or savoy cabbage that the email mentioned. Still have 1/2 head of cabbage, 1/2 kolrabi, scallions, 1 head lettuce, cilantro, 2 squash from last week, and PYO snow peas to work through from previous week. BF's odd work hours/not preparing dinner everynight are slowing me down. Next week on vacation so a friend will have to deal with next weeks load.
Just had the last of the Spring Share at Brookwood Community Farm in Canton.
Napa Cabbage, purple Kohlrabi, sugar snap peas, shelling peas, spinach, green leaf lettuce, garlic scapes, red beets, Swiss Chard. Next week they are starting the Summer Share and the Fruit CSA will start with Strawberries.
