Second Annual Fall & Winter Farm Share Fair
Thursday, October 16, 2014
5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Watertown Public Library
123 Main Street, Watertown
Embrace a whole new season of delicious local food! Sample new foods, get to know area farmers and food producers, and support local agriculture at the Fall & Winter Farm Share Fair.
If you think fall means the end of the harvest, you will be pleasantly surprised to see the abundance of local food available in winter. In addition to cold-weather favorites like apples, carrots, potatoes, and winter squash, you can also expect to find salad greens, beans, garlic, grains, onions, meat, and seafood. A winter farm share is also a great way to try something new: winter radishes, salad turnips, and celeriac are unusual and delicious.
You’ll meet people representing a variety of farm shares, including traditional single-farm programs, a grain share, multi-farm programs, local food delivery services, and fish programs. Our confirmed participants include Boston Organics, C & C Lobsters & Fish, Farmers to You, Freedom Food Farm, The Food Project, Pioneer Valley Grain CSA, Red Fire Farm, Shared Harvest CSA, and Something GUD.
You’ll also find programs that deliver all around Greater Boston. If you live or work in one of these towns, there is a program at the fair that comes to your town: Allston, Arlington, Belmont, Boston, Brighton, Brookline, Cambridge, Jamaica Plain, Lexington, Lincoln, Needham, Newton, Somerville, Waltham, Watertown, Wellesley, Winchester. (Here’s the full list of locations.)
