Sweet Meadow Farm

October 18th, 2009 · 3 Comments

I posted before about Iron Horse Farm which was my usual place to get eggs.  The only problem with that place is that often if I don’t get there early enough I pull into the driveway to see the note on the fridge saying they’re out of eggs.  Sometimes even when I AM early enough […]

Farmer’s Exchange

April 13th, 2009 · 2 Comments

One  of the nice businesses that has moved from walking distance from our house in Framingham is the Farmer’s Exchange.  Luckily, it didn’t move too far and is about 3 miles away on Nickerson Road in Ashland. I really like this place even though we don’t have much of a yard but they have all […]

Joan and Ed’s

March 15th, 2009 · 1 Comment

I’ve posted about their breakfast before but just recently got to lunch. One of my favorite things about J&E’s are their pickles, which they bring to the tables with coleslaw to the table after you order. My friend Rachel got a bowl of matzo ball soup and a generously sized potato knish: I got what […]

Iron Horse Farm

February 16th, 2009 · No Comments

Iron Horse Farm, at 29 Coolidge St. in Sherborn is a nice little farm that sells a selection of crafts in their shop but I go every other week for the eggs. There’s something nice about pulling into the driveway and seeing the chickens you get your eggs from just walking around freely. Sometimes you […]

Very cool

November 20th, 2008 · 2 Comments

So I went back to Boloco and while the burritos were still okay and I didn’t realise until I got home they forgot to put one in my to-go bag.  Since I had a gift card I decided to try a milkshake and that was pretty decent but the impressive part was the cup it […]

Dowse Orchards

October 13th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Last week I stopped by Dowse Orchard on Rt.27 in Sherborn.  They offer PYO apples and also have a little stand where they sell apples by the peck and half peck plus all sorts of goodies like locally made fudge, ready-to-bake apple crisp, local honey and the best cider I’ve ever tasted, which they make themselves.  Dowse […]

Out Post Farm

September 1st, 2008 · 2 Comments

Saturday we went to Out Post Farm in Holliston for some corn and saw a welcomed (to me anyway) sign of fall: Beautiful pumpkins! Growing up in Holliston, my sisters and I would always get our pumpkins at either Arcadia Farm or Out Post.  The added plus to Out Post is their broasted chicken, which was always […]

I *heart* Kappy’s

July 20th, 2008 · 2 Comments

I don’t drink a lot of beer but when I do, it’s to really enjoy the craft of a fine brew. One of the few beers I feel is a taste experience is “Blackened Voodoo”.   This is actually my all time favorite beer (lager), ever, ever.  The New Orleans based brewery was destroyed by Katrina […]

Gerardo’s II

June 1st, 2008 · 2 Comments

Gerardo’s II  on Rt. 9 (232 Turnpike Rd.) Westboro is another place I’ve been by 100’s of times but never thought of going in because it’s easy to pass and right by an on ramp and I just never bothered stopping in.  Since I started working in Westborough, I made the effort to go check it out. Inside […]

Metro West Humane Society

June 1st, 2008 · 2 Comments

The other day, the Metro West Humane Society was kind enough to let me come in and take some pictures and tell me about their cat shelter. They run a no-kill facility and have set adoption hours on Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. This is right on the Framingham/Ashland line on 126. Before I came here I […]

Minado is just to the left of Sherwood plaza (if it’s not still Sherwood Plaza on Route 9 in Natick). This place is more than just sushi, they have hot dishes, BBQ, salads and a nice assortments of salads and desserts. I love coming here for the variety but at $25 a pop (cheaper for lunch), […]

Ted’s Montana Gill

April 5th, 2008 · 1 Comment

In Westborough’s new and extremely pleasant shopping center (right downtown) is Ted’s Montana Grill. From reading it’s website, it is a chain of restaurants owned by Ted Turner and it’s mission is fresh food and to be environmentally friendly. I loved the inside, it looks old even though it’s brand new.  The combination of dark […]

Oliva’s Market

March 22nd, 2008 · 2 Comments

Oliva’s Market in Milford, on Rt. 16/ E. Main St. (even their website doesn’t give an exact street address) is a place that I know has been around for a long time because I’d go by it all the time but never went.  I heard that they have great Italian sandwiches, even one that is their […]

Tatnuck Bookseller

March 13th, 2008 · 6 Comments

What can I say?  I love Tatnuck.  They took an empty Star Market in the Westborough Shopping Center and turned it into an awesome independent bookstore.  Don’t let the modest lowercase lettering fool you, (t)Tatnuck competes with the corporate bookstores down the road and thanks to local support, continues to be part of the local business scene. I remember their […]
