Fresh Veggies in the Wintertime

One of the things that’s made this snowy winter remotely tolerable is the implementation of the Somerville Winter Farmers Market.  It runs every Saturday from 10 am -2 pm at the old Armory building on Highland Street. The last market of the year will be on March 26, so if you’ve been meaning to check it out you best get a move on. It’s also worth mentioning that credit and debit cards are accepted, according to their Facebook page.  I wish I’d noticed that before heading over there this morning, since I forgot to grab cash.

The Market is part of a bigger city-wide campaign to Shape Up Somerville; its aim is to increase access to healthy foods for Somerville residents.  There are vendors serving up just about everything you could imagine: fresh produce, fish, meat, bread, pies, nuts, sauces, pastries, wine, chocolate – and everything is locally/regionally grown and produced. There’s even live music to entertain you while you peruse, and also… isn’t it cool to have a reason to visit the Armory?
