A Sunny Patch of Winter

Back from a week in England to find it just as cold here as it was around Cambridge! Just about every Friday stand is still here, although the offerings are slimmer. Still, you can get beautiful cheese from Dancing Ewe, Patches of Stars and Bobolink, and great bread from Cayuga, Hot Bread Kitchen, and Our Daily Bread. John Fazio is here with chicken, rabbit, and other good things, and Beth's Farm Kitchen is offering pretty Halloween gifts of delicious jams and chutneys. Salento Farm has garlic and garlic powder and Roaming Acres has ostrich meat and fresh eggs. Pura Vida has several kinds of very fresh fish. Tree-licious has quinces. Berried Treasures has STRAWBERRIES!!

Two Guys has lettuces and Bodhitree has great greens, unusual potatoes, peppers, and herbs, as well as beautiful beans and peppers. Miglorelli has plenty of produce, including a wide variety of gourds and squashes. Queens County Farm Museum has mixed greens and other produce. Sycamore and Oak Grove have gorgeous cheese and sugar pumpkins. They and Norwich have heirloom tomatoes (!) and several stands have broccoli. Muddy River and Sycamore have brussels sprouts.

Dutchmill has beautiful zinnias and other flowers and will probably be gone after this coming week for the year.
