Weekend Veggietrivia

So much delicious local food happening in the next few days ...

Boston's first annual food truck festival is Sunday, 10am to 4pm, at the SoWa Open Market. (Grub Street Boston has a short commentary/guide. And here's the Boston Herald story.)

Simultaneously (Sunday, 3pm to 5pm), Boston Localvores is hosting a local cheese tasting at the Somerville Growing Center. Lemon honey fromage blanc? Yes, please!

Wednesday, August 11, is a benefit night for Mass Farmers Markets at the new Flatbread pizza place (formerly Sacco's Bowl Haven) in Davis Square, Somerville. Like the Davis Square farmer's market, we can see it from our house, so we're pretty excited to try some wood-fired pizza and candlepin bowling.

And so much delicious local food to come ...

So, the big news of last week was that Deval Patrick pledged $10 million for a Boston Public Market, which might open in 12 to 18 months.

But! According to (via @somervilleinfo), Somerville is getting a winter farmer's market even sooner. And Somervillains love their markets, according to the article: "The Union Square farmers market is drawing 1600-2100 people per week ... and the Davis Square market a whopping 2800 or more."

It's an exciting time to like food and live in Boston.
