Farmers' Market (Milton Lower Mills Wharf)

There were about a dozen farm stands located along the Neponset River and near the Milton Landing Wharf. They had great fresh vegetables and fruits grown locally, fresh baked breads, salsa, homemade pies, maple syrup, potted plants and herbs, and even hand-made pottery, which make up this farmer's market. We stopped by the Re-Vision Urban Farm booth, where since 1990 their farm/homeless shelter has been growing vegtables off Blue Hills Ave. We have to say, our favorites were the Mango Salsa... mmmm! And Strawberry Rubarb Pie, fantastic!

Ashmont Grill

We love the Sunday brunch at the Ashmont Grill, although dinner is also excellent. It is one of our favorite restaurants in the entire city. This establishment in Lower Dot has a hip atmosphere with beautiful exposed brick walls and an amazing gourmet menu that highlights local and seasonal foods. The Huevos Rancheros is Erin's favorite brunch item and the portobello mushroom sandwich is her favorite for dinner (the soups are also really great). Chris loves the French Toast for brunch and the Grilled Free Range Chicken Breast with sweet corn polenta cake & grilled summer squash for dinner. We have yet to enjoy the garden patio seating in the back, but we can't wait to try it, along with exploring their extensive beer and wine selection at the bar.
