Farmer's Mkts, CSAs, & Farm Stands September

itaunas | Sep 3, 2008 11:02 AM

Topic to continue what Bostonzest started for August:

Arlington today was very busy and very nice. Favorite stand overall was Hmong. Noticed 2-3 stands selling commercial tomatoes (with the boxes in the truck, included some of the more busy stands), but there was a large selection of heirloom tomatoes at Grateful Farms and one other. Dick's had white corn (maybe silver queen??) in addition to butter & sugar which all had. Hmong had some nice maxixe, looked like some flat chives, lots of beautiful squash blossoms, and plenty of other beautiful greens, but very little traffic. Fish stand was very busy, but people in line quite rude.

No jilo, but in addition to the Lowell market where graygarious saw it, I have locally grown jilo at some Brazilian markets. And I didn't see any taioba.

Does anyone know if Hmong is attending Medford this year (I didn't see them, but haven't been recently)? Union on Saturdays? Definitely need to buy more from them!
