Wow, am I behind on posts. I have a few of them in the queue, including a couple of new (for me) restaurant reviews. More on that later, but for now let's take a look at my first visit to the Myrtle Ave farm stand, which started up a couple of months ago on Thursday evenings.
The farm stand is a great idea, and it's always nice to have more options for local and sustainable food. The Greene Hill Food Co-op is also using the stand as an opportunity to recruit new members, so there's another reason to stop by if you haven't yet.
The stand itself isn't massive, but what's there looked great. We picked up a few tomatoes, some green lettuce, and a ginormous cucumber that dwarfed everything else. I loved the tomatoes and the cucumber, but the lettuce turned out to be kind of soft and disappointing. Maybe I'm just picky about lettuce.
The stand is up on Thursdays from 4-7 PM on Myrtle between Price and Navy and will run through October 28th.
