Heavens Harvest Farm @ Waltham Farmers’ Market

12 10 2013

I always love going to the Waltham Farmers’ Market on Saturday mornings.  Depending on schedules (swim, dance) I usually have one of my children with me.  Today I was solo !  I got to spend time talking to people, looking at beautiful fruits of labors, and relax.  No chasing after kids, bribing with delicious donuts etc.

The first place I went to was Heavens Harvest Farm.  They have the pinnacle of what a farmers market should have – truly beautiful products.  They are worthy of just being a picture in a frame on your wall; they are blessed with being so delicious and good for you at the same time as well as being visually inviting.  I need to come up with a new category.  Visual Umami ?  Umami cubed?   Regardless, I love their displays.  The last time I brought my daughter, the swiss chard was gorgeous – groupings of leafy goodness – the colors were extraordinary.  The oranges, yellows, reds…my daughter picked one out that was almost as big as she was.  And sautéed with some of the great Spartan Pure olive oil and some sea salt….my wife and I ate it right out of the pan, standing around the stove.   We just couldn’t wait!

This week the selection was equally beautiful.  Squashes, apples, fennel, peppers, potatoes etc….all beautiful.  If you get the time to go to the farmers’ market, I highly recommend anything from Heavens Harvest.  They are personable, funny and they think like you do – grow it safely so you can eat it safely.  Seems like a perfect combo to me.  If you forget to bring your own bags, they do supply them for you.

Enjoy the pictures – I can’t wait to enjoy the fruit.

You can visit them at the Waltham Farmers’ Market on Saturday mornings.  I don’t know the rest of their schedule, but you can go to their website here:  http://www.heavensharvestfarm.com/   OR follow them on Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Heavens-Harvest-Farm/104735889564221

Was waiting for me when I got home today. What a fantastic treat ! I wish you could have been here when I opened the bin – the luscious aroma of earth and freshness and the combo of fruit and veg. The kids will be stoked for dessert tonight – oranges pears grapes bananas. Delish!

Boston Organics

Looks like we are going to go back to getting deliveries from Boston Organics.  It is such a great service, like being part of a CSA, but with the goods delivered right to you !  You control exactly how much you want to get, what you prefer to receive, if there are items you absolutely do NOT want.   We had Boston Organics a couple of years ago but now that the kids are all big enough and enjoy eating fruits and veg, it looks like this is a great and surprisingly inexpensive way to get fresh local fruits and vegetable to our table.  Our EdibleTable.
