Anybody who knows me well knows that I love food. I love to cook, I love to entertain. For me, it is fun to fill my house with friends, and share a meal around a big table. Lots of laughter, spirited debate and camaraderie typically follow. The centerpiece of this Norman Rockwell picture is the food. And I like food, all kinds of food. I like to prepare it, I like to eat it, I just like it!
The root of all good meals is its ingredients. The fresher the ingredients, the better the meal. I did not make this up, this is an age-old adage. And if I am going to make you dinner, a good, satisfying meal, you can bet it is going to be made with the best, the freshest ingredients I can find. (Heck, they will cover up for my cooking inadequacies.)

So while it is January and many of us are trying to eat better, and be better, where does one go to get good, fresh, organic foods? One more responsible choice would be to attend The South Shore Winter Farmers and Artisans Market which opens this Saturday and runs every Saturday through the first weekend in April. Some of my favorite vendors will be there such as Holly Hill Farm, Stephanie’s Sour Dough, and Brown Boar Farm to name a few. There will be dozens of other vendors present on the upcoming Saturdays where you can hand select good, fresh, organic, locally sourced foods to fulfill your healthy living New Year’s resolutions.
