Yesterday was the first Monday of the season for the farmers' market in Bedford - until recently I didn't know Bedford has one. Maybe a dozen stalls, some with candy, baked goods, and plants. There was more variety at the produce stalls than I expected this early in the season - I suppose some of it was greenhouse-grown, or started. Got a big heirloom tomato, some lovely radishes, rhubarb, chard, and leaf lettuce. One vendor had coolers of fish, but I had to pass since I had other things to do before heading home. Andover is the same distance from me as Bedford, but doesn't start till mid-July. Ditto for Lowell, but last fall when I went there at the scheduled day/time, the plaza was empty. Does anyone have any reviews of the Andover and Lowell markets?
