Last farmers' market of the season

A Proper Bostonian said farewell to the Copley Square farmers' market yesterday:

... Winter has arrived and I was bundled up in my shearling coat, hat, gloves, scarf, and boots. Many market vendors close down after the killing frost, when the choices narrow to root vegetables, cabbage, and apples. So just a few hardy farmers were setting up their stalls when I got there, shortly before 11. Selling can't legally begin until the stroke of 11, so I had to hang around. I went to my favorite apple stand, and saw a fellow with his hood pulled down over his forehead and a huge scarf wrapped around the rest of his face, except for his blue eyes. ...

I always liked these things. Never made it over to Copley, though. I used to buy from the market that started at the old Northern Av. Bridge. It eventually moved to Dewey Sq. (across from South Station). It ended up having to close down (according to press accounts) due to a bill of $19K for a police detail to direct the farmer's trucks in to and out of the square. Too bad.

There's a farmer's market in Somerville's Union Square every Wednesday afternoon from April through October. Good vegetables, etc. can be obtained there for a cheaper price. They also sell pumpkins for use on Hallowe'en and for pumpkin pies.
