Spring is in the air! and this also means tons of fresh local produce. One of my favorite things to do when the weather warms up is going to the local farmers market wherever I may be. Luckily, I live just a few T stops away from the Haymarket year-round farmers market in downtown Boston where there is always amazing things to choose from. Great fresh produce at amazing prices that you would never see in a conventional grocery store. Because of my love affair with the farmers market I have relegated myself to no longer venturing there solo… because I will buy EVERYTHING.
The last time I went to the market I bought a carton of strawberries, a whole pineapple, fresh herbs, a red bell pepper and a bushel of asparagus for $4. Awesome deal!
I found a fun video from Zagat on how to go about shopping at the farmers market and how to navigate what is best to buy. Get out and go shopping!
