The Wayland Winter Farmer's Market: More Reasons We Love it There

Because, not only are there so many types of produce, but there are heirloom beans.
Baer's Best Beans are grown in Maine and are perfect for heaping bowls topped with sea salt, olive oil and a bit of vinegar.
Because there are blue eggs, care of Pete and Jen's Backyard Birds that are laid by chickens right in Concord.
Because there are homemade pickles-grapes, carrots, asparagus and even, yes, cucumbers.
Because, if you are lucky, there are goats, bunnies and baby lambs.

And because the setting, Russell's Garden Center provides color in the grey winter.
(Photos care of my four year old son who was enamored with the silk flowers and ribbons!)

We love the Wayland Winter Farmer's Market at Russell's Garden Center in Wayland.
