Summer's Here

FRAMINGHAM

My colleague Meg Woolhouse and I just returned from a lunchtime trip to the farmers' market on Framingham's Village Green.

Browsing the many stalls, we picked out a light lunch of sourdough from Hi-Rise Bread Co. and gouda from Smith's Country Cheese in Winchendon. We also stocked up on fresh peas from nearby Hanson's Farm in Framingham, plus beets, carrots and lettuce from Sangha Farm in Ashfield - all of which is now sitting in our air-conditioned office instead of sweltering in the car.

The Framingham farmers' market runs from 12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Thursdays. There are plenty of others around, probably one near you.
