A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

Sometimes posts get away from me. I’ve been trying my best to catch up on them. Did you know that Worcester has a year round farmers’ market on Saturdays from 9am – 12pm. Bonus that it is next to Crompton Collective and Birch Tree Bread Company. Headed out there one Saturday in May (!!). We started with Crompton Collective. They have a mix of antiques, gifts for the home, jewelry and fun items for the kids.

So what can you expect to find at the market? Five Fork Farms brings their amazing flower bouquets, Seven Hills Farmstead scoops out artisanal pasta, Dismas Family Farm brings some of the freshest produce, Jaju pierogi sells both frozen and warmed up deliciousness, and Stained Swirls is decorating your body with beautiful henna designs.

I had been checking out Aisling’s Cookies on Instagram and had wanted to try them out (the main reason we went out to the market…). They did not disappoint. Aisling O’Sullivan is a mom to 4 and makes these amazing cookies. They were seriously tasty (you know some of these fancy cookies can be hard and taste like cardboard, but not these!!). I made sure to get a few for myself while I was picking up some for the “moms” in my life. Head over to her Instagram account and be prepared to be wowed – and then go ahead and order a custom set of your own.

I’m discovering more and more about Worcester – that there are some amazing restaurants and some really cool local shops. It’s actually just as far for me to get there as it is to trek into Boston, so we will certainly do more exploring in the future. Top on my list to try is Dead Horse Hill and Crown Bakery. Tell me all of your favorite spots in Worcester!
