On Our Radar:
Fresh and Local
Posted by:  Jamie Bushell

One of my favorite pastimes of fall is perusing farmers markets. The Copley Square farmers market enables us city dwellers to get a taste of a small community feel every Tuesday and Friday from May to November. All of the local, fresh produce has usually been picked within the past 24 hours with speckles of dirt still sprinkled on the skin. Plus, who can resist digging into a huge barrel of string beans to hand pick the ripest of them all for an afternoon snack? From fennel bulbs and beets the size of my fist in the early spring, to the juiciest assortment of berries during the peak of the summer, I look forward to seeing how the produce changes week to week. What truly distinguishes this farmers market from many of the others throughout the city is the unique and plentiful mix of farm stands, artisan bakeries, florists, cheese makers, meat suppliers, and independent artists as well. It is also a great place for people watching, with its central location on Boylston Street. So why not get outside to buy some veggies? The sweet corn is a callin' your name. And trust me--you won't be able to resist it!
