A red-letter day for Jamaica Plain foodies
That is, of course, Wednesday, Nov. 2, when the new Whole Foods is scheduled to open - but also when a new service starts up to deliver Vermont farm goods to JP.
Farmers to You makes its first delivery from small-family, mostly organic farms in Vermont to the Boylston Congregational Church at Amory and Boylston streets for pickup by local customers. Unlike with CSAs, where customers pay a set amount per year for deliveries of whatever participating farms raise, Farmers to You customers place orders online by Sunday for Wednesday delivery to the church (home delivery by bicycle is also available).
JP joins Cambridge, Somerville, Beverly, Lexington and Arlington in the Farmers to You service area.
