Farmers’ markets are opening everywhere and hounds are sniffing out the great stuff. BostonZest raved over the Narragansett Creamery stand at the Copley Square Farmers’ Market: “lovely, fresh, fresh, fresh queso fresco,” she sighs. “Their ricotta is just amazing! And their feta …” agreed galleygirl.

Madrid spoke up for the greens (including stinging nettles!) at the Siena stand at Copley: “beautiful,” and sold triple-washed and ready to eat.

BostonZest, who’s been busy, also checked out the Thursday Prudential Center Farmers’ Market. “We had the most incredible asparagus from Warner Farm. It was about the best I’ve ever tasted,” she says. “Dave Gilson told me the guy from Warner Farm arrived late at the market because he was out in the field picking that asparagus.”

Fruits and vegetables are still a bit thin on the ground, but there are strawberries, radishes, lettuce, and greens to be found.
