Belmont Farmer’s Market tops competition

Props to Belmont’s Farmer’s Market, which Boston Magazine deemed the best area farmer’s market in their annual Best of Boston issue, which just hit news stands. While many local farmers’ markets offer great, locally grown produce, the Belmont market was singled out for its selection of “regional goodies” –including locally raised meats, honey, cheese (from Somerville’s amazing Fiore di Nonno) and ice cream from Belmont’s own Angelato.

It wasn’t mentioned in the Boston magazine piece, but I’d add Baba Ganoush and Hummus from Belmont’s own Samira’s Homemade, which the Roberts family is crazy about. The article has the ring of truth: I know of a few friends who trek over from Arlington, Watertown and other locales to get what Belmont’s Farmer’s market has to offer, even though their towns offer perfectly respectable alternatives. Boston Mag gave Lexington’s Farmer’s Market at Union Square the runner’s up award. In its fourth season, Belmont Farmer’s Market takes place every Thursday through October 29 in the municipal parking lot in Belmont Center (behind Macy’s, etc.). Check it out!
