Made the trip to town yesterday evening for the opening day of the 2012 Greenfield Farmer’s Market. As you may know the market has been relocated to Gen. Hull Way next to the City Building in trying to make it more central to the community and to draw attention to downtown merchants.
While the fresh grown local produce hasn’t turned up yet there were still good things to bring back to the wife and grandchildren. Julia Estlegroth had some great looking baked goods and a small container of oatmeal, craisins, nuts, and white chocolate chips. From Mary Jane Parker I snagged a slice of sugar-free cherry pie and from others I picked up a jar of homemade hot pepper jelly and some fresh cilantro. Also on display was a variety of hand crafted jewelry, natural oils, lotions and soaps, hand crafted canes and other word workings, plus floral and decorative works. Bill Walls was selling locally raised frozen pork products and I meant to pick up some sausage links and pork chops on the way out but it slipped my mind. In a few weeks he plans to have chicken and lamb also available. Sorry Bill!
