Westminster Farmers’ Market Report from Maple Heights Farm
Massachusetts Local Food – Delivery Day is Friday. Stop by the booth if you want more information on this incredible opportunity to bring local food to you on a year round basis. We may have a bit of leftover organic, fair-trade coffee from Dean’s Beans for sale. All proceeds from this product benefit local food pantries.
Although the weather was threatening, last Friday was another great day on Academy hill. We were busy for most of the afternoon with customers looking for meat and bread – and information on Massachusetts Local Food! This week I am planning to add more loaves of cinnamon bread and Finnish coffee bread as these sold out by 4:30. Remember that you can order ahead (by emailing me tonight) if you want something reserved.
Showers are expected this week and remember, rain or shine, you still have to eat this week and you deserve great food. If the market doesn’t have much for fresh vegetables this week (though it may), it won’t be long before peas and lettuce are available in abundance. Strawberries are ripening too, though ours are not completely red yet – perhaps next week…
