Dreaming of Wilson Farms

This is the most amazing place--and SFNE in the extreme. I feel very fortunate to have this in my town. It goes way beyond produce to things like fresh-baked bread, flowers (very good prices), jams, meat, and gardening supplies. Just be careful in the parking lot--people have a tendency to get anxious about finding parking (there's plenty, actually). You don't want to be responsible for a five-SUV pileup. Not pretty.

Wilson's is also the first place I ever tried Peanut Butter & Co's Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter. Not made in New England, but delicious (and nutritious!) anyway. Mmmmm. . .

Try Blue Heron Farm for the complete opposite -- it's just a little open-front shed, full of veggies, and you pay on the honor system. No kidding. It's in Lincoln, two towns over from Wilson's. http://www.blueheronfarmlincoln.com/test2/index.html

Whoa--awesome! I will definitely check it out. Thank you, thank you!

Readers: The farm also does pick-your-own, which is lots of fun and guaranteed fresh. But wear a hat if it's sunny!

The train tracks that they mention on the site are a Commuter Rail line. To have a really nice picnic day, take your bike on the commuter rail from Porter Sq out to the Lincoln stop and ride your bike to the farm. If you have a basket or a backpack you should be all set for your goodies. The area is lovely for bike riding.

(You can take your bike on the train free on off-peak hours, which means all day on the weekends.)
