Welcome! And a brief tour!

Hello Friends and Fans of the Sherman Market!

At last, here is a space where we can record and document information on the products we provide you! Our hope here is to not only share updates and information about what's going on at the market, but also use this space to share information about where our product comes from, who we work with, why they're doing what they're doing, and other tidbits about each product. When time allows and if possible, we hope physically visit the places where we get our items from and talk with the producers, the farmers, the cheese-makers, and the bakers. We want to take pictures and ask them questions you've been asking us. Our hope is then to retell our experiences to you so that this space can be utilized as a reference or an encyclopedia, if you will, of what you've been eating (or what you've been using - if you have bought soap or lotion, for example).

So without further ado, let the fun and the visits to your local connections begin!

For those of you who do not regularly come to the Sherman Market (or for those of you who are thinking to come visit!), here is a brief tour of what our market looks like inside:


  1. Great idea! We really look forward to seeing your blog progress. Your first post about rye flour has already made us very inspired. I appreciate all of the great links to various local food items. You guys are a powerhouse of local food goodness. In my mind, with this blog, you could build up a powerhouse of online resources for Boston Area Locavores. Keep up the good work! Thanks for all of the awesome things you do!

  2. Hurray for the new blog! But I am distraught to see that Mr. Pluckles the Rubber Chicken seems to be missing from the dairy case. I didn't see him during a recent visit, either. Has he flown south for the winter?
