farmers’ market ‘gold’ . . .

butter

On Saturday mornings, I like to go to the farmer’s market in town because even though there aren’t that many participants, Fivefork Farms, a CSA flower farm from Upton, MA. serves as the anchor, drawing lots of customers from our town and nearby places. And I like to go to chat with Grace and her Dad while picking out some flowers to adorn the kitchen table for the week.

Today, I found this wonderful Fall bouquet of mixed flowers . . . AND walked by a new vendor from a Jersey cow farm in Lunenberg, MA. who had a few bins of freshly made BUTTER from grass-fed Jersey cows. I commented that I had never seen butter offered before and the fellow said they usually sell all of it to a local bakery and had a few bins left that he brought to the market.

Wow! – what a wonderful find! Having fresh filet of sole and asparagus for dinner tonight too! – with lemon (fresh!) butter!

YAY!
