Went to the Brunswick Farmers Market this Sunday. There were about nine vendors there and a fair amount of people milling about. Starting a farmers market must be hard and this looked like an decent start. Had the usual: strawberries, spinach and salad greens, some asparagus. Nice produce from Ridgefield Farm & Orchard (Shepherdstown). Look forward to seeing more of their stuff as the season progresses. Also really happy to see local honey and a meat purveyor. Talked to the meat guy for a while. On his farm, WoodTrail Graziers LLC (about 20 minutes away), he raises all his meat. Everything free range, no antibiotics, additives, artificial fertilizers etc. The beef is 100% grass fed. Pork from Tamworth pigs and pastured and the chicken is pastured in rotating enclosures. Purchased a frozen whole chicken from him for $3.50 a pound. Now what to do with it?
Also the Frederick News Post did a front page article on it. Its great to see things like this get the publicity. As its a little bit closer to stately Fred Manor than Frederick, I shall try to be a regular.
