|Busa Farms beautiful array |
of fresh, local produce
Today was my first visit of the 2011 season and I purchased delicious local raspberries, romaine lettuce, and fresh sweet corn from Busa Farms (Lexington Rd., Concord, MA), picked-this-morning bouquet of thee most fragrant lavender from The Herb Farmacy in Salisbury, and cukes from Rad Urban Farmers (who brought his produce to market on a bike and grows it in his own backyard! Pretty darn cool!). Oh, and tomatoes - gorgeous ones - from Charlton Orchard (Charlton, MA).

Additionally, I noticed today the Farmers' Market is sponsored in part by Joyce Murphy, a local Lexington Realtor at William Raveis Realty, who is absolutely the ideal real estate agent! I first met Joyce when I moved to Lexington 20 years ago this week! She knows more about the Lexington area than anyone I have since met and I couldn't possibly recommend her more highly! : )
