Our goal has been to bring fresh local produce and artisan foods to Braintree and inspire a sense of community in our neighborhood. There's something to be said about purchasing directly from the farmers and food makers that help us understand where our food comes from and how it's made and the thoughtfulness and care that goes into it. The dialogue between folks that live in a more urban or suburban setting and farmers that have a significantly different lifestyle is engaging, enlightening and inspiring. It's reassuring to know your food was cooked by a human with ingredients that are pronounceable and not loaded with preservatives. Purchasing local foods not only tastes better and is at the peek of it's heathy benefits, it also helps the local economy, small businesses and farms, creates less pollution because it travels less and promotes open spaces as farmers are stewards of the land.
