Wednesday in Wellfleet: Check Out the Farmers' Market

Did you know that there's a farmers' market on Wednesdays, behind Preservation Hall, 335 Main Street? The hours are 8 am to noon. Last week the Portnoys were selling organic honey from Narrow Land Farms and is it ever delicious. They had even brought part of a hive so visitors could admire the busy bees. Today Annie, from Eastham, had amazing heirloom beans for sale. I also purchased a rhubarb pie at the Wildflour Bakery stand.

Please support Wellfleet's farmers' market. It's a great way to see old friends and make new ones, as well as to pick up some succulent greens or a dozen fresh eggs.

It's a shame some people in town do not see the benefit of having a farmer's market. Having lived in France, I love going to an open-air market. How do you feel about it? Do you have a farmers' market in your town?
