Speaking of Food... [farmers' markets, co-ops, and farm shares]
I miss the farmers' market in Chestnut Hill. I did all my shopping weekly at the farmers market... I walked up with my canvas bags and pick up fresh meat and produce. When I got into cooking Asain food, the guy at the produce stand would always pull out special ingredients that he must have kept in his van only for special requests. The old man at the sausage counter was irrascible but had the best pork apple sausage (that carmelized when you cooked it).
Anyhow, I was looking for local farmers' markets and ran across this site. Does anyone have a favorite farmers' market?
In looking up farmers' markets I thought to look up co-ops and farm shares as well. I don't think there are any co-ops in Northern Virginia, but I know there are farm shares. Does anyone have any experience with these?
