SUNDAY'S ADDITIONAL VENDORS

ACKERMANN MAPLE FARM
In early 2013, Ian and Caitlin purchased the 36 acres that would become Ackermann Maple Farm, and constructed their business. The sap that flows from more than 3,000 taps is heated using a wood fire, evaporating the water and drawing out the pronounced natural maple flavor for which Vermont is known. The tapping, sap collection, boiling, filtering, bottling, and shipping are all done by Ian and Caitlin. Cabot, VT

REASONS TO EAT LOCALLY GROWN


Each week for 10 of them, we're republishing, from the Central Mass Grown 2016 Farm Products Guide, one of their list of 10 Good Reasons to Eat Locally Grown. [Our edits in brackets.] First up:

One:

Locally grown food tastes and looks better [and is fresher]. Crops marketed close to home are picked at their peak and usually sold within 24 hours of harvesting. Food imported from far away must travel on trucks or planes and then is stored in warehouses [beore it reaches you, the consumer].


The Maynard Community Farmers' Market


A shout-out to one of our neighboring markets, which opens this Saturday, June 25. Check it out 9am–1pm in the Mill Pond parking lot of Clock Tower Place on Main Street (Rt. 62). Have a great season!
