Yesterday was our third-to-last Farmers’ Market and Plymouth. And it was not a beautiful day. We knew it would be cold but hadn’t counted on the rain. What could have made for a very long and miserable afternoon turned into somewhat of a vendor celebration of food and community!
Market Manager Barbara and her husband and Market Traffic Manager Dean supplied us with a deep grill filled with smoky wood chips. Dave came prepared with a ham (our own) that we’d slow-cooked in apple cider the night before. We placed it on the grill with squash, potatoes, peppers, and eggplant and before you knew it, we had donations of local fresh breads from Jenny’s bread, Artisan Kitchen and Blue Blinds Bakery, a delicious mushroom mix from “mushroom lady”, pork sausage from Stillman’s, Corn from Frietas Farm, Cranberry Sauce from Edible Yard, Sweet and Sassy Barbecue sauce from Walter’s Specialty food, and more. Everyone ‘stopped by’ our stand to eat and chat, and after some wine from ‘the shed’, Dave swung me out to dance in the rain to the beautiful harp version of The Sting.
