MEDFORDIANS, THIS WEEKEND IS LABOR DAY. DO YOU KNOW WHO SPENT THE SUMMER LABORING FOR YOU? YOUR LOCAL FARMERS, THAT’S WHO!
Come show them some love at this week’s Medford Farmers Market—3 to 7 p.m. Thursday, One City Hall Mall, behind City Hall—and cross everything off your barbecue shopping list while you’re at it. Sausages? Shire’s got ’em! Something cool and refreshing to wash down those brats? Look no further than Coastal Vineyards. And have you ever TRIED a carrot dog? Good Roots has you covered. In a bun. Slathered with relish. Say hello to this week’s vendors:
Coastal Vineyards has been coming to the market for some time, and if you haven’t had a chance to try their wines, I highly recommend them! Good local wines are hard to come by (the climate here isn’t exactly ideal), but Coastal does an incredible job down on the South Shore. I’ve tried quite a few of their varieties and was particularly impressed by the Pinot Gris, since dry white wines have been my go-to during the long heat wave of this summer. The Rosie is also remarkable: a crisp refreshing rosé that’s perfect for taking the edge off during these toasty evenings.
