Thanksgiving in historic Plymouth, MA will be rich this year with local vegetables, pies, and other carefully prepared food made with ingredients from surrounding towns. In addition to the parade held every year the weekend before Thanksgiving, this year offered the very first Harvest Market, supported by our very own Plymouth market manager, Barbara Anglin, and sponsored by CSA members Edible South Shore.
Unfortunately, I was off at school this weekend, so I was unable to attend, take pictures, and tell the story. But Dave was kind enough, after a weekend of hard labor, to bring the camera and take a few shots.
Turnout was excellent! And he said 5 or 6 CSA members showed up to visit and pick up some veggies. We were rich in potatoes, leeks, eggs, carrots, turnip, arugula, squash, and honey and I hear the tent was packed! This was the first market of our first season of winter markets. The rest will be held the third Thursday of every month at Plimoth Plantation, followed by a movie and drinks. Check out the Plymouth Farmers’ Market website for more information.
