If you’re not here in the Bay State, it’s National Farmers Market Week as well. According to the USDA, there are over 8500 farmers markets across the country.
Here in Massachusetts, according to the press release, we have “approximately 248 summer and fall farmers’ markets and 40 winter farmers’ markets ….” There is an interactive map listing all the farmers market in the state, so you can find one near you.
Going to work I take the Red Line to South Station, so I pass the Dewey Square Farmers Market every Tuesday and Thursday. It couldn’t be any easier, so I have been buying fresh produce and flowers there on a regular basis. Also, on occasion, I stop by Hanson Farm in Bridgewater.
Maybe this week, I’ll buy something a bit different from the farmers market. What about you?
