Local produce in Boston

A post on the Belmont Farmer's Market website alerted me to this great article at

Just the other day I spoke with a fellow at Arax (not sure if he is the owner or a manager there; he orders produce for them) about their produce. He said that he would be carrying organic produce. I told him I knew of some great local organic farms he might want to contact. His comment was something along the lines of "we all get our produce at the same place", clearly implying that he thinks that the local farms are selling things they are not growing themselves. No doubt true for some, but it was disappointing to hear him brush off the idea of sourcing locally.

What are your favorite sources, other than CSAs, farmstands, and farmers markets, of locally grown produce in season? Organic is great, but anything grown locally is fair game!
