Return to the Wayland Winter Farmer's Market!

2 weeks ago I visited the Wayland Winter Farmer's Market, and last week I went to the Somerville Farmer's Market. This past Saturday I decided to return to Wayland for the Winter Farmer's Market at Russell's Garden Center. Figuring it would be nice to spread my support to both markets and their vendors next week I will try to visit the Somerville Market again.
As you can see we came back with a great variety of goods from the market:
After a delicious breakfast courtesy of Nashua, NH's Bagel Alley we hit the vendors and started stalking up. Here's what we got:
-Carrots, Onions, & Garlic from Red Fire Farm (Granby, MA)
-Whole Wheat Flat Bread & the newest spread, Muhammara (fire roasted red peppers, walnuts, and pomegranate with a nice cayenne pepper kick) from Samira's Homemade. (Belmont, MA)
-Mix Salad Greens from E & T Farms (West Barnstable, MA)
-Pam's Salstina (Pea Pesto with a Guacamole like consistency) from Pam's Black Bean Salsa (Marblehead, MA)
-Gala Apples & Cider from Charlton Orchards Farm (Charlton, MA)
-Local Root Beer from the great Tower Root Beer (Somerville, MA)
-Smoked Cheddar, Chipotle Cheddar, & Goat Tomme cheese's from West River Creamery. (Londonderry, VT)
and if that wasn't enough we also picked up dessert:
-Marscapone and Raspberry Gelato from Giovanna Gelato (Newton, MA)

Such a great variety for the 'darkest' days of the year. Once again, in the dead of winter we will be looking forward to a fresh salad in our future! Life is good.

I am so jealous that you have a local market open in the winter. Everything sounds so so good!

meems - I love cheese! I can't get enough of it! Currently we have 5 cheeses in the fridge!

Robin- We have 2 different winter farmers markets, both a 25 minute drive away. Not far at all considering it means access to a ton of storage crops, greens, meats, cheeses, drinks and baked goods. It's wonderful and worth the extra effort on a saturday morning.
