Do you love local, fresh food?  Maybe you’ve been thinking about joining a CSA – a Farm Share? A Farm Share program allows you to receive a fabulous box of great stuff every week direct from a Massachusetts farm. 

Join us at THE ARMORY on MARCH 29, and meet the fantastic farmers and home delivery companies from across this state, which bring local produce to the Boston area.  Compare and learn about all the various options: veggies, fruit, flowers, meat, fish eggs, dairy, and specialty products. 

Over 30 vendors will be at the fair, including some wonderful sustainable food product companies and service providers.  Spend your food dollars on locally grown, and sign up at the Farm Share Fair!

Saltbox Farm Cooking Class: Breakfast Pastries @ Saltbox Farm
Mar 30 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

SaltboxFarm

Sunday mornings are, hopefully, restful. Mornings when we can wake up a few minutes late and ease into the day. What better way to accompany a peaceful weekend than to have some pastry for breakfast. These pastries don't need to be complicated and can often be prepared with little effort and time. After this class, instead of heading to the bakery, you'll have the skills to make delicious pastry at home. 

Menu: 
Coffee Cake with Pecans
Chocolate Eclairs
Yeasted Cinnamon Rolls
Savory Scones with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Bacon
Lemon-Glazed Pound Cake
