Boston Farmers' Markets

Hi All--

I recently moved to Boston by way of NYC, San Francisco and Atlanta. I live in Brookline, but work in downtown Boston. In reviewing this board's postings and others, including:

I'm quickly discovering there is a dearth of options for Saturday markets with relatively 'reasonable' hours (7 am - 7 pm), especially for the summer. For working folks, the weekday schedules are tough to accomodate. Granted, I've been spoiled by NYC's Union Square Farmers' Market and the too numerous to count in SF/Bay Area, including the Ferry Building and Atlanta's Int'l Farmers' Market, but is Boston's farmers' market scene that lacking?

I'm not in-tune with the New England food scene/culture, but I always assumed there was a rich one to be discovered (i.e. Vermont maple syrup, Maine/Boston seafood, etc.). Are there not definitive go-to destinations for such bounty in/around the Boston area? I'm currently researching the benefits of joining a local CSA as well, but the thought of being able to walk/peruse an open air farmers' market on a beautiful weekend afternoon is my idea of time well spent. Your thoughts are appreciated.
