It is our favorite time of the year: Farmer's Market Season!
The Copley Square Farmer's Market, just a short walk away from the Center (and a great place to grab lunch!), opened today, so Becky and I took a walk to see what the first crop would bring.
While not the sunniest of days, the market was bustling with vendors selling veggies, plants, meats and cheeses, and some mouthwateringly beautiful pastas and pastries.
We picked up a couple gigantic (we're talking size-of-your-head) cookies from Cook's to bring back to the office...
We were excited to see some of our favorite vendors back in action, and to welcome some new ones, like White Lion Baking Company, selling paleo and gluten free baked goods, including some homemade granola that we got to sample.
We'll definitely be going back to the market soon, and in the meantime, we have two classes coming up that will show you how to make the most of your farmer's market shopping (and cooking) experience.
