This week it's your turn, especially if you love wool. Saturday is "Wool Day." "New England farmers will bring hand-spun and hand-dyed yarn, roving, top, raw and washed fleece. Finished products include woven, knit and felted items, including the Baaay State Blanket," says Market Manager, Peg Mallett.
We saw a sample of the wool last week at the Springdell Farm table. Their sheep are hand sheared each Spring and the wool is milled locally. Last week they had a beautiful selection of bright, cheerful, yarn for sale.
Here are a few more happy market moments.
We sampled Tower Root Beer, a local brand that has recently been revived by the current generation of the family that began the company in Somerville way back in 1914.
Farmer Michael Docter was cutting and passing samples of his sweet, delicious carrots from Winter Moon Farm.
