I have never been so happy to see so much green! I decided to hit the Wayland Winter Farmer’s Market at Russell’s Garden Center on the very last weekend of the season. It was just the breath of spring air I needed after a long week of winter weather, a bad head cold, and no fresh produce. The place itself is huge, and would be heaven for someone who is into gardening. Sadly, I have no green thumb, but I still loved walking around.

There were flowers everywhere, and even the birds were singing (or sleeping, in this case)!

Amidst all the beautiful plants and flowers, there was a great group of vendors with local products including a variety of breads, cheeses, honey, and yes, fresh vegetables. I tasted a few cheeses which I liked, but my main focus was on the produce. The winter selection is limited of course, but I did buy one new item, and the farmer himself told me how to cook it. Details tomorrow!

  1. This brings back memories of when your mom and I went to the veggie stand in RI. The farmer gave us a kohlrabi and told us how to cook it. When we got it home we couldnt even peel it never mind cook it! It was like peeling a rock!…:)

  2. I'm looking forward to a Farmer's Market date next year! Looks fun!
