We’re baaaaack! Jason and I are back in Boston and pretty settled into our house, minus a few miscellaneous boxes. Rick is also getting used to being in a house again, taking advantage of our yard and barking at all the neighbors!
One of the first things I wanted to do after we got home was fill the kitchen with fresh fruit and produce. Luckily, we live walking distance to a great farmer’s market, in Union Square, Somerville. The market is open every Saturday from 9am-1pm through October. I hadn’t been to this market in years and it sure has grown. There were a dozen purveyors of fruit, vegetables, flowers, meat and poultry, baked goods, herbs and plants. We made sure to get a little bit of everything – fruits, veggies, poultry and fresh cut flowers (for my mom, awwww).
The last purchase at the market was a whole chicken from a local farm. It seemed weird to photograph it, but I’ll post pictures of the dishes I made with it soon enough! I’m so glad I can hit up this market every weekend. We went at 11am and by then it was packed with adults, kids and dogs. It was really difficult to get around so next time I think I’ll go earlier before the crowd. I’ve done quite a bit of cooking since being home (yea for a dishwasher and full-size oven!) and will post new recipes and photos soon.
