We are having a locavore type of week – in February. It’s amazing how much progress farmers on the Cape have made in recent years. Five years ago, it was nearly impossible to buy local sources of protein. Now the choices are nothing less that dazzling at the Winter Farmers’ Market in Orleans.
The Winter Market takes place on the first and third Saturday of the month from 9 a.m. until noon in the cafeteria of Nauset Regional Middle School. It’s a friendly and bustling place despite being in the off-season. The Kitchen Genius and I stopped by E & T Farms’ booth first thing because we had reserved some of the locally grown shrimp Ed and Betty Osmun are offering. It was our first chance to try them and we were pretty excited.
