Dorchester Winter Farmers Market

The Dorchester Winter Farmers Market has kicked off its 2014 season, and it is a great little spot for picking up vegetables, meats, cheeses, and baked goods this winter. The market is located in Codman Square in the Codman Square Health Center, a beautiful building, and is a wonderful thing for Dorchester and surrounding communities as well as for the vendors who participate.

The market is full of smiling faces and delicious food, and we picked up a few special items along the way. You may remember my visit to Red’s Best last summer. I was happy to see they are vending at the market, and even happier that they were offering Chatham cod. We picked up a pound of cod for Sunday dinner, and it was incorporated into a simple, delicious meal, recipe to come soon.

We also picked up some guacamole and salsa from Mi Padre Pedro’s for snacking and taco salads this week. I have a meal plan that I am trying to stick to, and having some really fun ingredients to look forward to definitely helps.

We couldn’t resist a little bit of sweet from Union Square Donuts. We opted for a heavenly bourbon caramel donut before we left the market.

In addition to great food vendors, the market also offers free coffee and local musicians for entertainment. I loved the community feel of the market and had a great time exploring it. I think it will definitely become part of our Sunday afternoon grocery shopping rotation.
