It's time to keep your eyes open for this second issue of To Market. This is a second great publication from the same folks that bring us Edible Boston.
Here's the cover that you want.
In my preview copy, I found a fun set of connections. I wrote a recent Fresh & Local newspaper column on following recipes. As I was looking for the perfect thought to wrap up my article, an online conversation with award-winning food writer Maria Speck contained the perfect quote and she gave me permission to use it. (Thanks, Maria!)
I curled up in my chair with the new To Market and found a great article, The Revival of New England Grains by Maria Speck. In it, she gives a bit of history, an outline of the grains that are finally being grown locally, and a list of farms that are adding a missing link to our local tables.
One more link was seeing Four Star Farm on the list of suppliers. This farm gave me my introduction to the great taste of our local grains. A few years ago, they made a guest appearance at the Copley Farmers Market and I was able to buy their whole wheat and Barley.
Naturally, there is a lot more to discover in this issue, so get a copy and enjoy.
Here are Maria Speck's books, if you want to learn a lot more about all those ancient grains that are new again.
