    Fairwood Farmer’s Market
    by Merry Maccini
    I love going to the Fairwood Farmer's Market in the summer. Most years I plant a small vegetable garden, but due to travels this summer I did not. The Farmer's Market became my garden. There are several organic farms which offer fresh produce and eggs. The selection is better than anything I could have grown myself!

    I enjoy samples of fresh baked bread and heirloom apples. Local honey is available, and the aroma of roasted nuts, kettle corn, flowers, soaps, and spices is intoxicating. There are homemade caramels for my sweet tooth, beer from a local brewery, hard cider, and mead (honey wine) from the local meadery.

    Most Tuesdays I go home with a selection of locally produced food to make a delicious dinner. There are protein offerings including grass fed beef and other fresh meats. A variety of herbs are offered by vendors as well as delicious salsas and homemade chips to accompany dinner. If I don’t feel like cooking, I can pick up a prepared lasagna or sauce. Or, I can just visit one of the food trucks and have dinner at the market while listening to the entertainment.

    The Fairwood Farmer's Market is held throughout the growing season on Tuesdays between 3 and 7 p.m. I will be sad when the last market day is held on October 9th, however, I will look forward to the spring opening the third week of May.
