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.)
