Wayland Winter Farmers Market 1/14

A great market bounty!
Gail and I visited the Wayland Winter Market for the first time this season on Saturday. The market is held indoors at Russell's Garden Center. Though this market may seem out of the way it is close to both of our families and a quick trip west of Boston is not unheard of! We love this market for the great variety of vendors.  We arrived 90 minutes after the market opened and had already missed the mushroom vendors! Nonetheless there was a tremendous variety.  Multiple sources of eggs, produce, cheese, alcohol (wine or cider), honey and a variety of meats! Baked goods, prepared foods, pasta, maple products, and lots of sweets too! We even enjoyed lunch on a bench in the greenhouse amongst tropical plants.
We brought home lots of great stuff:
Apples, hard cider, eggs, cider (not pictured), beef shanks, chuck steaks - from Charlton Orchards. White sweet potatoes, Japanese pumpkin (green Kabocha), potatoes, yellow onions and a red onion from Red Fire Farm. Carrots from Terrosa Farms. Cabbage and beets from Winter Moon Farm. Marinated feta from West River Creamery. Garlic & basil goat cheese from Crystal Brook Farm. Maple teriyaki marinade from The Warren Farm & Sugar House, and Plum Island red wine from Mill River Winery. Also not pictured is the 'personal' size chocolate bourbon pecan tart from Danish Pastry House which Gail and I spit and shared over the last few days!
It was so great to get back to this market and Gail and I both agree this is probably our favorite winter market and it was so great to get back there and sell the vendors. We spent a little extra time there as Gail had her kitchen knives sharpened by On The Edge, so while we waited we had lunch and browsed the market.
