After weeks of anticipation the festival finally arrived! I headed down to the Greenway around 11:15am and though the festival had only kicked off a few minutes before it was already packed! The booths ran from the carousel at Christopher Columbus park all the way up to the Boston Harbor Hotel.
Sofra. There were four kind ladies manning the table who warmly welcomed me to the neighborhood and offered to let me get up close and personal with Sofra's bakery items. Had I not just eaten a huge brunch, I would have spent a fortune at their booth.
Nashoba Brook Bakery. The old ladies next to me could not get enough of their bread! They sampled a piece of every loaf on the table.
Equal Exchange coffee cart. It's a mobile coffee cafe! If I drank coffee, I'd find a way to get these guys to peddle right over to my house.
American Flatbread also brought something incredible on wheels, a pizza oven! How would you like to ride alongside that thing on the highway?
Ula Cafe table. Though I spend a ton of time in Jamaica Plain, I had never heard of this bakery. They attracted me with their macaroons!
606 Congress was hard at work shucking oysters for the crowd. Quite an elaborate booth set up!
Blue Glass Cafe which had a smoker going, complete with firewood! They also had the most impressive drink station I saw all day.
City Feed. Their booth was totally mobbed!
American Provisions was also tending to eager customers. They chatted away while sporting black t-shirts that said in white across the chest, "Buy Local."
Enterprise Farm. The market team is based in Whately, MA (western MA) and they have a school bus they drive from community to community bringing their farmer's market on wheels to people who otherwise would have zero access to that kind of fresh food at such a low cost.
There were so many great booths today. Here are a few more snapshots of the deliciousness:
