The Brewster Market


In my travels around Putnam yesterday, I came across the Brewster farmers market. I was out of eggs, so I picked up a dozen.


I couldn’t resist the Toussaint from Sprout Creek Farm, either.



And I was going to pick up some fruit from Tello’s (look at those apricots!) and organic vegetables from Ryder Farm, but I knew I had a lot of driving to do in search of pizza, so I was worried the produce would wilt in the heat.



I’ve never been to this market before, but they’ve got pretty much everything covered here: eggs, fruit, vegetables, cheese, flowers and ready-made food, like quiche. The only thing missing is a meat vendor.

How does it compare to the market you shop at?

  1. Hi Liz. Just got back from two weeks in Northern Vermont–almost everything we ate was local–meat, vegetables, wine and beer , cheese, milk, eggs…I think that’s it.

    And just yesterday I was at the Brewster Farmers Market and bought the Toussaint cheese and some of their chevre. Wow, that’s some good stuff.

    Now that I’ve found where your blog is I promise to be a regular reader. Enjoy.
