Is it possible that I have not yet waxed rhapsodic about the farmers’ market this year? I went, as I always do, to the Davis Square market yesterday and there was a real August-worthy bounty awaiting me. The piles and variety of produce increase week-by-week until there is truly more variety than a shopper could need. The market is located close to campus but, more to the point, convenient to the parts of West Somerville/North Cambridge where students tend to live. For those in other neighborhoods, there are markets all over the area. In fact, there are several other markets that I could (and sometimes do) shop at, but the one at Davis is my favorite.
The vegetation wasn’t the only highlight yesterday. I also ran into two Fletcher friends — Elke, a PhD candidate, and Lauren, a recent MALD graduate. Such a treat to catch up in my favorite Wednesday location!
