A Market A Day


Planning for the Farmers’ Market at Harvard is in full swing. We’re temporarily relocating to 26 Oxford Street, in front of the Harvard Museum of Natural History, and we’ve been working on new site plans, permitting, and collaborative programming with HMNH.

We’ve been thinking about berries, ricotta, garlic scapes, fresh fish and eggs. The kind of stuff you’d like to eat every day, if you could.

As we were surprised to find ourselves, there’s at least one — if not two — markets every day of the week in Somerville and Cambridge alone. (The number of farmers’ markets in the U.S. have increased from 1,755 in 1994 to 7,175 in 2011; some fear that the market is becoming saturated with farmers’ markets.)

    Wonderful site. Many thanks to Harvard Dining Service. I worked for Harvard for many years and enjoyed the dining services’s many talents. I also got to know some wonderful people who used to work there, before they retired I live just “up the road” in Arlington and attend the Farmers Market there.
