The wait is *finally* over! Those of us who longed all winter for one more bite of just-picked lettuce or sweet-as-candy strawberries can finally rejoice and put back that bag of frozen broccoli crowns. Farmers markets  and the World PEAS community-support agriculture program (CSA) are back!!

Besides the miracle of fresh, locally-grown  produce, those of us who live and work in downtown Boston can also enjoy the convenience of picking up fresh food at farmers markets that are nearly around the corner every day of the week.  Even more convenient, is the World PEAS CSA, which drops off farm shares right in the Jaharis Building of the Friedman School!

So, lettuce begin a new season of yum ;-)! Check out some of the following farmers markets close to the Tufts health science campus and learn more about the World PEAS community-support agriculture program (CSA).
