Like corn, nothing says summer like a fresh tomato and at Brigham and Applefield Farms you can currently buy tomatoes in a wondrous variety of shapes, colors and sizes. And if you aren’t a canner, you can still capture summer using your freezer. Two easy ways are to peel and seed for use in soups and other dishes (dip them in boiling water to easily remove skin) or slow roast tomato slices or halved cherries with a bit of salt for winter use on sandwiches.

In addition to tomatoes and all the other delicious produce, The Compulsive Baker (Susan’s last 2018 date!), Joni’s Cannolis, and Pony Shack Cider join the weekly vendors. Also find new-to-us artisan Everything Alpaca, NH, Dr. Kay Sunakawa, Holistic Healing Center, Assabet River Rail Trail volunteers at the Community Table and Maynard Rocks in the Kids’ Area with rock painting for everyone. Vira DeFilippo makes her annual appearance at the Serendipity Music Tent with her blend of old school Motown, funk, soul and pop opera. Don’t miss it.
