Watermelons and cantaloupe are here. The big month of bounty is here. I filled my cart today at Copley. A tiny woman in front of me at the Atlas stand bought a 16 lb watermelon!
This year, I decided that I would not miss out on heavy items because I couldn't carry everything home and splurged on a Rolser cart from Charles Street supply on Beacon Hill. LOVE IT!
Now watermelon and potatoes and squash can come home in the same trip as corn and potatoes. Even if I have to pick up a few other things while I'm out. Those of us who walk to the markets are always making choices based on what we can carry.
Today I bought ground lamb and corn from Stillmans; blueberries from Hamilton, tomatoes, basil, fingerling potatoes, and a melon from Atlas; mixed greens and Tuscan kale from Siena, Nectarines from Keown, and a baguette from Iggy's.
As usual, here's are links to find farm fresh food near you.
