Spring has sprung!

Who's excited for the 2014 farmers market season?  After a long winter, the spring and summer markets have slowly begun to open.  So far, I have been to the Natick Farmers Market and Union Square Farmers Market.  

New additions that I noticed at the Natick Farmers Market include Bondat Foods, which makes a delicious chocolate chipotle steak rub, Red Barn Coffee, for whole bean coffee and Doos PK, for dips and energy drinks.

At Union Square, I saw Hosta Hill for sauerkraut and Kim chi made with their own produce, Soluna Garden Farm for spices and teas, and Tipping Cow Ice Cream from Medford.  I saw they had a strawberry basil flavored ice cream, definitely something I want to check out.
