Farmers’ Market Update

I’ve been a repeat offender at the Bethel, New Milford, and Litchfield farmers’ markets in Connecticut.  Litchfield has by far and away the largest number of farmers present, but they all seem to have their own specialties.

Heirloom tomatoes seem to loom large these days; they are soooo flavorful and even colorful.

As for Otis, Massachusetts:  Unfortunately quite small.  But everything has to begin that way.  Perhaps with time.

About goatsandgreens

The foodie me: Low/no gluten, low sugars, lots of ethnic variety of foods. Seafood, offal, veggies. Farmers' markets. Cooking from scratch, and largely local. The "future" me: I've now moved to my new home in rural western Massachusetts. I am raising chickens (for meat and for eggs) and planning for guinea fowl, Shetland sheep, and probably goats and/or alpaca. Possibly feeder pigs. Raising veggies and going solar.

  1. BTW… one farmstand at the Litchfield farmer’s market was selling…. artichokes! So they CAN grow around here! My heart throbs and pulses and purrs!

    I’m gonna have to learn how to do that!

    I get Jerusalem artichokes up the wazoo, but what I want are the real things!
