Ashmont/Peabody Square Farmers' Market

It is July, so that means it is farmers' market time again in Dorchester. Why buy produce that was picked prematurely weeks ago in far away places, when you can buy the freshest locally grown fruits and vegetables at the farmers' market? We frequent the Ashmont/Peabody Square Farmers' Market and argue this is one of the best in the city. It has an amazing selection of local fruits, vegetables, and fresh flowers. This year they raised the stakes with two new additions! There is now a fishmonger from Red's Best, who deals the freshest locally caught fish, and Tavolo has a booth with all sorts of Italian products, including pizza dough, fresh pasta, olives, sausages, meatballs, and sauces.

Have you been to the Ashmont/Peabody Square Farmers' Market? Rate it below.

Wahlburgers in Dot?

The Dorchester Reporter seems to be starting a campaign to get the second location of Wahlburgers to be here in Lower Dot. It does seem like a natural fit, since the Wahlburg family hails from Dorchester and their restaurant uses our neighborhood as part of their Hingham restaurant's theme. They are asking you chime-in on their Facebook page to give your opinion.
