We were traveling west on the Mass Pike (that's I-90 for non-Massachusetts folks) the other week, and among the usual lot of roadside signs, we were surprised to see one for a farmers market at the next rest stop! We weren't there on the right day, unfortunately, but we wanted to let other travelers know to keep an eye out. Details after the jump!
The farmers market we saw was at the Charlton Plaza Travel Center between exits 9 and 10 on the Mass Pike. It's open on Saturdays from 9-6 for the rest of the season.
How great would it be to pick up some nice produce or freshly made food on your driving break instead of the normal fast food fare? Fresh fruit is also one of our road trip staples, and it would be great to be able to restock our supply at a farmers market like this one. Of course, we wouldn't turn down a few home-baked cookies or farmer's cheese either.
Have you noticed any other freeway farmers markets in your travels this summer?
