REAL MEALS FOR REAL MEDFORDIANS

We get it: Life is busy. You’d love to craft elegant menus every breakfast, lunch, and dinner of the week—but you’d also love a pony and a free trip to Hawaii. That’s why we’ve got a meal for every maker at the Medford Farmers Market. Planning an elaborate weekend dinner party? Sweet. Pick up some elegant Chinese broccoli from Lanni Orchards, kumato squash from Brigham Farm, fennel from Good Roots, and pork loin from Freedom Food Farm. Just want to feed your kids and get to bed? Grab a heat-and-eat pasta from Deano’s, and food will be on the table in five minutes. (We recommend the asparagus and marscapone ravioli.) Done and done. See you 3–7pm Thursday at the Condon Shell.
