Today was the first Brookline Farmers' Market of the 2008 Season.
Clear Flour Bakery had lines most of the day.
Thanks to the crew over at the Boston board of Chowhound.com, I sampled the Salty Butterscotch Sauce from Shootflying Hill Sauce Company and decided it would be too dangerous for me to take it home without a dinner party scheduled to use it up. I fear I would sit with a spoon and eat myself into a salty-sugar daze.
And, the "Fish Lady" was on hand with a lovely assortment of very nice looking seafood. I signed up for her e-mail list and will report later on how that works.
Another busy spot at this market is the ice cream truck from Trombetta's Farm in Marlboro, MA. www.trombettasfarm.com
