Wayland Winter Market 2/11

Gail and I unexpectedly found ourselves at her Sister's house early on Saturday morning which made a trip to to the Wayland Winter Market  very convenient!  We got some usual staples as well as a few treats!

We got carrots from Winter Moon Farm, which are quickly become my favorite carrots! They are slightly sweet and bursting with flavor!! From Red Fire Farm we got a bag of potatoes, a bag of yellow onions, a bag of spinach, and two sweet potatoes. We took home a small bag of arugula micro-greens from E&T farms and a baguette from the Danish Pastry House. From Charlton Orchards we got apples and beef shank for soup. We also got a second beef shank from Caladonia Farms, because Charlton Orchards only had one. We needed a soft cheese for a dinner party so we took home a log of Australian ginger goat cheese from Crystal Brook Farm. On the 'treat' side of things we picked up a container each of pickled carrots and picked grapes from Grillo's strange as the thought of pickled grapes sound they are  a great balance of pickled and sweet and very snack-able. I can say with full confidence that I would be able to take down an entire container of the grapes with ease. The carrots were great too, and were a perfect addition to a cheese plate.
Not from the market, but another 'local' treat we got was a bag of Hawaii Kona coffee from Sudbury Coffee Works, which is roasted on site in their commercial grade roaster. The coffee works had an impressive selection of at least 15 or 16 varieties of coffee and I look forward to giving the Hawaii Kona a test drive!
