    Dewey Square Market Grows

    It's back and better than ever!

    Good news comes to the Leather District: The Dewey Square Market has expanded to include not one, not two, but three days a week.

    You can now shop Monday, Wednesday, and/or Thursday from 11:30 AM to 6:30 PM.

    Beef at the Dewey Square Market? You bet!

    Come support one of the new kids on the block. Austin's Farm. We bought a big chuck steak last week and braised it pot roast style with Madeira sauce. The meat was fork-tender and delicious. More soon on Austin's Farm.

    Austin's brings their meat frozen. You can buy it at lunch, they'll keep it for you, then you simply swing by on the way home to pick it up. They even have insulated bags.

    Sirloin steaks last night were terrific. Prices are great.

    Here's a sampling of other things we've found in these opening days:

    From Siena Farms:

    • delicious Easter egg radishes

    • Boston Bibb or butter lettuce

    • romaine lettuce

    • chive blossoms

    • scallions

    • rainbow chard

    And fresh, handmade mozzarella (from friends of Siena) which we had with the first of the season heirloom tomato from Savenor's. Some fresh basil, a sprinkle of salt, a dribble fine balsamic and olive oil. Heaven.

    From The Herb Lyceum:

    • lavender for a homemade version of the yummy lavender, cranberry lemonade found at the market

    • herb plants for the windowsill (dill, cilantro, Thai basil)

    From the Panorama bakers:

    • pastries from Georgia & from Russia - try the hachapuri an amazing cheese in puff pastry

    • spinach mushroom turnover

    • broccoli cheese turnover

    From When Pigs Fly Bakery:

    • Green olive and hot pepper bread

    • Sourdough bread

    From Keown Orchards:

    • herb plants (basil, chocolate mint, apple mint, thyme)

    • peony plant

    For hotdogs you can't beat the bread and butter pickles from Warren Farm.

    For a Snack or a Lunch:

    We noshed on a fresh spring roll today that was out of this world. The soft rice paper was wrapped around noodles, cucumber, fresh herbs like cilantro, scallions and a light peanut dipping sauce.

    Other new vendors include a Kettle Corn snack (looks so good, I'm trying to stay away!) and A Touch of Provence which brings Provencal table linens, cooking classes and more to the LD.

    Asparagus is in (see Nourse), baby greens, peas, strawberries and a big selection of baked goods from sweet to savory.

    Wrote to the Digg folks b4. Asked why they don't include any food or cooking topics. They told me their "readers would consider those categories spam" - I've asked them again, based on your query and the fact that Suite101 partners with them. We'll see what response I get this time.
