Sad local food discovery: the farmer’s market here does not open for another two weeks. Boo. I was looking forward to lettuce on Saturday. But at least we’re checking out the Central Square one this afternoon!
Happy local food discovery: There is at least one store in downtown Boston that sells local meat, according to a local food website I found, and one local farm has a buying club in Boston for meat purchases. I will have to check these out. I don’t *need* to eat meat, but it’s tasty and a good source of protein, and I want to support local farms who are raising animals sustainably and humanely. Once we locate a source of meat we like, we’ll probably eat it a few times a month in things like stir-fries, plus in larger quantities a few times a year for special occasions.
