Verrill's is more than a stand - it's a 200 acre, working family farm, complete with flowers, fruits, and vegetables, plus a full bakery (with custom orders), deli, and a refrigerator full of pre-made meals (everything from mac-n-cheese to lamb shanks). In fact, Verrill supplies fresh produce to many well-known Boston area restaurants.
- yellow tomatoes (they had red, green, and purple as well)
- a purple pepper
- fingerling potatoes
- purple string beans (which I'd never seen before)
- spicy corn salsa (which I just enjoyed over tortilla chips with melted cheese)
- pepper jack bread
- and a single-serve pumpkin-maple pudding for good measure :)
I also picked up a free copy of Edible Boston, a quarterly magazine that "celebrates the diverse food and delicious culture of the Greater Boston Area."
