Faux Spring!!

It is one of those times that occur in November and February when the sun is out and the temperature is temperate and we all get fooled and end up wearing either too much or too little. The beautiful sunny morning at 8 AM has become cloudy, though, and it's hard to decide what to do. When I was in the greenmarket at 8:30, the vegetables, root and sparsely green as they were, were still bright and beautiful. Now, at 9:30, I wonder. At least the sun was out for my pictures!

Hammond Dairy has tasty yogurts, flavored and plain. I tasted the peach, which was very good. Red Jacket is here with juices and Muddy River has carrots, celeriac, squashes, potatoes, and spinach. Samascott has all kinds of apples, potatoes, and various fruit items, as well as grass fed beef. Norwich has good looking greens and root vegetables. Deep Woods maple syrup and Tremblay Honey are here and Tree-Licious Orchards has apples and pastries. Beth's Farm Kitchen has luscious jams and chutneys (my current favorites are raspberry, black currant, and blueberry). Bobolink Dairy has delicious cheddar-style and other cheeses.

Pura Vida has excellent fresh fish and shellfish. Flying Pig has bacon, pork roasts, and eggs. Miglorelli has frozen vegetables (corn, collards, tomatoes, etc.), apples, and other produce. Madura has several kinds of good looking mushrooms and the ostrich meat stand is here as well. Two Guys From Woodbridge have hydroponic lettuces and herbs. Cayuga has lovely ale bread and whole wheat loaves as well as beans, grains, and flours. John Fazio has ducks, rabbits, and other poultry. And last, but not least, Bodhitree has tasty looking greens, peppers, and root vegetables.
