Summer is finally here. With the first sunny day in recent memory, I took a trip during my lunch break to the Kendall Square Farmers’ Market in Cambridge, Ma. It opened up a few weeks ago and I have been wanting to go, but wasn’t able to find the time during my work day until today. It’s only about a ten or fifteen minute walk and well worth it. It’s nice to see fresh, sustainable and locally grown vegetables from farmers coming from the surrounding communities. They are eager to talk, answer questions, talk about their farming methods and the in-seasonal vegetables at their stations. Bakeries, dessert companies and artisans also complete the scene adding to a really enjoyable experience. I picked up some really great looking golden and green zucchinis  that I’ll use to accompany a meal and to make bread as well as some lettuce for a fresh salad to accompany my often lonely meat creations.
