Farmers' Markets week of June 25th

BostonZest | Jun 26, 2007 07:59 PM

It was so quiet at the Copley Market today. I really felt bad for the farmers. I guess, no one wanted to venture out into the heat.

Stillman's reported that they have put the netting on their blueberries-- apparently they are starting to ripen and need protection from the birds. We had their Italian sausage for supper tonight, and it is very good.

I bought salad greens and English cucumbers from Atlas. Greenhouse tomatoes from McArthur Farm-- we had some this week and while not the best ever they were good in a salad.

I picked up strawberries from both Hamilton and Stillman's (I try to buy a bit from all my favorite farmers) and my first fresh fennel of the season from Stillman's. I'll shave it on my mandolin and make a salad of it over a bed of arugula.
On the other side of the market, I tried some butter bookies from Tatte. Very nice and small enough for less guilt.

Cook's orchard had my husband's favorite oatmeal raisin cookies so I took their three for $5 deal and tossed a couple in the freezer for him.

It was so hot and humid that I did not visit every booth to see what was new. I'll try to do a better job on Friday.
