Adventures in Boston

This weekend I ventured to Boston to see a few of my favorites.  I can't say I ate particularly healthy (I was on vacation, after all) but at least it came from some local small businesses, and we even managed to squeeze in some vegetables.  Some of this may be a stretch, but it was definitely foodtastic, so I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking:

Local beer counts, right? (Harpoon Brewery)

And cannolis... as long as they're from a local pastry shop? (Mike's Pastry)

***Important Note!  The Boston Haymarket (where the veggie pics are taken) is NOT a farmers market.  The food here generally comes from a wholesale market, and is not necessarily (and probably not) local or organic.  However, it is CHEAP, and it's an intense experience of an open-air market, so if nothing else, maybe it will encourage you to add a little fresh fiber to your diet once in a while (*ahem*).  Also, some of the tiny local shops that surround it offer interesting ethnic foods and fresh, local fish and meats (very fresh-- you may have to be brave to actually eat it...).  At least check it out for the food experience!
