SOWA famers market + Gilson's Lyceum CSA questions

emmtilt | May 6, 2011 10:50 AM

My husband and I went to the SOWA farmer's market last weekend for opening weekend, and I have to say we were really disappointed. There was only one real farm stand there, everything else was prepared foods, and the selection of food in general was tiny! Is this normal, or should I expect it to get more exciting as the season goes on? We're coming from NYC, where we're used to buying all of our groceries (barring canned goods/cereal) at the local farmer's market for very reasonable prices. Can I do that in the South End?

Also, it seems like Gilson's Lyceum is the only CSA offering pickup of fruits + veggies near us. Has anyone tried their CSA in the past...Can you recommend it? The principle (credit for the season) sounds really nice and flexible, but we're concerned about prepaying for something we really know nothing about....

Any advice welcome!
