|Summer Squash & Peaches are now available at the market.|
The Braintree Farmers Market will be on the cutting edge this coming Saturday as Patti Small rolls in with her On the Edge Sharpening truck tricked out with her mobile blade sharpening workshop on board. Patti makes her presence know throughout Eastern Massachusetts by keeping an active schedule with local farmers' markets. If you like to support small businesses this one is about as small as it gets since Patti is the CEO and the only employee. Her tools of the trade include a whetstone, ceramics and a variety of polishing stones. Load up your knives, scissors, shears, salon scissors, gardening tools and just about anything that needs sharpening. Drop them off with Patti as you arrive at the market and pick them up when you leave. It's like having brand new knives all over again.
Visiting us again this week is Stir it up Cuisine with their taste of the Caribbean Pepper Jelly and Pepper Jelly Cheese Torte. For those of you who met them at the Strawberry Festival you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't tried them yet this Saturday is your chance to spice up your life!

|Unbelievably delicious granola from The Providence Granola Company.|
Start with a sampling from The Providence Granola Project. This is one of our newest vendors and they provide us with a wide array of healthy granola and muesli choices with flavors like Ginger Zinger, Mochaccino Hazelnut, Cherry Chocolate, Pina Colola, Maple Rosemary and Keith's Originola. The very first year they started their artisan business they won a "Best of Rhode Island" award and some of the area's premier restaurants started putting them on their menus. Along with their outstanding products they are also very proud of their refugee employees that are the backbone of the company.
|Fresh picked local berries right from the grower.|
On top of the yogurt add fresh fruits from our growers. Each week brings new varieties of berries and fruits that are in season to the market. Try something new each week to keep your taste buds on the cutting edge of flavor. It's amazing how something so simple can look so beautiful, taste so good and be so healthy!
|Honey direct from the beehives at C.N. Smith Farm.|
This season we are thrilled that The Cupcakerie is providing market customers with hot and iced coffee. We've had many requests for this convenience so join us for your morning brew made from locally roasted New Harvest Coffees. Enjoy your java while checking out the market or sit and relax in our cafe area on the green.
So get into a healthy breakfast routine at the Braintree Farmers Market. If there's something you can't find please ask us at the Sustainable Braintree/Market Manager Tent and we'll point you in the right direction.
