Other people wait anxiously for the start of the baseball season. For me, the happy day that kicks off summer is the Wednesday when the Davis Square farmers market opens for the season. Massachusetts has a really great network of farmers markets — some big, some tiny, including new stands at rest stops along the main highways. I started going to the market at Davis years ago, and I’m a rain-or-shine weekly shopper.
This is New England, characterized by its short growing season, so the summer’s first markets have more vegetable plants than vegetables to eat. There are also two bread bakers, several cheese makers, and a fish smoker. It’s a small market, but how much can a person eat in a week? It’s also the closest farmers market to Fletcher, though there are others that aren’t far away. And this year, for the first time, there’s someone selling gelato! Check it out next time you’re here on a Wednesday. I’ll be there!
