May 27, 2010 - Prudential Farmers' Market
I went over to the Prudential market today to grab a sandwich from Iggy's, and surprise! Ben and Jerry's was giving out free scoops of Cherry Garcia or Milk and Cookies. How could I say no to free ice cream? Milk and Cookies is a brand new flavor, and it's made with fair trade cocoa and vanilla extract.

Before I left the market, I had to walk by the Nella Pasta stand to look at their adorable pug. I can't help it; I'm a pug-stalker. Unfortunately I couldn't buy any pasta today since I won't have a chance to eat it in the near future, but maybe next time!
June 1, 2010 - Copley Farmers' Market
Today I braved hurricane force winds to get to the Copley market and back to the office. (Strong winds + long hair + hands full of food = perilous walk.) I made it back in one piece, though, and without dropping anything. Today's finds:
The Herb Lyceum ($5)! Stuffed full of rice noodles, huge chunks of cucumber, spearmint, cilantro, chives, lettuce, and Vietnamese coriander, this big spring roll came with ginger-peanut-soy-garlic dipping sauce. You'd probably guess that The Herb Lyceum would have fresh, delicious herbs, and you'd be right. My co-worker sitting nearby even commented on how good the spring roll smelled. I was worried this wouldn't be enough for lunch, but it was bursting with noodly goodness, and there was seriously almost an entire cucumber in there.
To go with it, I picked up a couple apple cider juice boxes ($0.50/each) from Carlson Orchards. Juice boxes make lunch feel picnicky! Too bad I ate inside.
