Come to the market for all the vegetables you need for the entire week (plus a vegetable or two to store for Thanksgiving). In addition you can plan a farmers’ market gourmet meal or two using some of our farm fresh cheeses, grass-fed beef, pastured pork, local artisan breads and more. Do I even need to say anything about eggs this week? For local, healthy, farm fresh eggs, you may want to arrive early!

Farmers’ Market Finds are a terrible thing to waste…

A fun dish that REQUIRES leftovers is fried rice.  Even the rice should be made in advance.  You will want a farm fresh egg that is not leftover, rice, a bit of olive oil and leftover veges and meat.  If you don’t normally buy farmers’ market eggs, you may want to consider it for this dish as the majority of the dish will be made with leftovers so .25 per egg is worth the splurge for the high quality nutrition it brings!  This is a great meal especially when you only have a few ounces of high quality meat that you want to utilize in a full meal.  Amy Dacyczyn tells us to keep a quart container in your freezer, adding bits of meat and vegetables as you have them so you are always prepared for this simple and delicious dish.

More Ketchup Trials Give Me Better BBQ Sauce and Simple Catalina Dressing

 

Vegetables, Goat Cheese, Cheddars and Goudas, Beef, Pork, Artisan Breads (including Gluten-Free), free-range eggs, herbs, crafts and everything you could hope to find at a farmers’ market.  We are in full swing and the market is as busy as it ever gets.  Stop by for an iced coffee and a donut as you wander through the booths.  Talk to our local farmers about their production methods.  Watch the children run and play and blow bubbles (or bring your own to do the same).  Take in a puppet show or a blacksmithing demonstration.  I don’t think there is a better, or less expensive way to entertain yourself on a Friday afternoon!

 

Entertainment this week at Westminster Farmers' Market…
Entertainment by Gayle Craig who is a singer/songwriter from Ashburnham. She is also a member a Westboro based band called Fine by Friday! We also welcome the musical talent of Kevin Jones!

Stop by for another delightful puppet show at 6:00 from Button Box Theatre!

And don't forget to visit Robert Phillips for another informative blacksmithing demonstration.

Don’t Miss This Incredible Opportunity to Vote for Healthy Food!

Voting by Choice, Your Vote Counts at the Grocery Store…

So, most of us want better food. Better quality, better taste, better nutrition. It all seems like David and Goliath sometimes as we are just one person, one family, one community and cannot be heard, right? While this true at some level and can be very overwhelming, it is not exactly the whole story. The rest of the story is this: food producers produce what you will buy. That’s it. If you won’t buy it, they won’t produce it. You can make a statement every time you shop. We saw this very clearly when Monsanto stopped producing rBGH (genetically modified growth hormone) because you voted for milk from cows that didn’t receive it (note that another company still produces it, but many dairies have stopped using it). Sure, it took a while, but look how far we have come!
