ARTfarm Wednesday Great Happiness, 3–6 p.m.


The cry of the hounds in the early morning fog punctuates the hunt for wild cucurbits. Luca’s Great-Great-Great-Granduncle Daniele Giorgio Wilfredo Blaghini Gasperi IV displays his prized trophy in a rare daguerreotype from the family album.

Great Scott! The ebb and flow of our farmstand customers is ever changing like the sands of time. Wednesdays have become Saturday-like recently, quite popular. We look forward to seeing everyone, and we will have more Fiddlewood Farm fresh local goat cheese this afternoon. Please note, we will also feature Dr. Bradford’s fresh goat cheese on Saturday morning this week, so everyone need not come Wednesday just for that creamy delectable treat.


Also featuring, Wednesday afternoon, from the ephemerally  rain-kissed gardens here at ARTfarm: Sweet salad mix, teen arugula, teen spicy salad mix, loads of cherry tomatoes, slicer tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes (don’t squeeze please!), exceptionally tasty pumpkin, kale, sweet bell peppers, not-hot seasoning peppers, mildly hot serrano peppers, fairly blazing Indian chili peppers, loads of freshly harvested onions with gorgeous green tops for your soup and garnishing purposes, Italian basil, lemon basil, holy basil, garlic chives, cilantro, dill, parsley, cooking greens, radishes with yummy green tops, and big bold zinnias and marigold cut flowers.

And if you’ve missed out (by the bittersweet vagaries of timing) on one of the farmstand items you had your heart set on, or if you are suffering mild fits of nostalgia brought on by the encroachment of tax season or even the onslaught of headscratching headlines in the news media nowadays, be sure to console yourself with a uniquely local vegan fruit ice cream treat by the I-Sha chefs, from our cooler. It is a perfect mini vacation from any negative thoughts. As in any fine dining establishment, we will supply you with comfortable seating and a spoon of quality flatware (which we ask you to leave behind when you depart so that we may clean and polish it for another day). We remain, at your service, at the foot of the rolling hills of the South Shore, between Ha’Penny Beach and the Boy Scout Camp. Open Wednesdays 3–6 p.m., and Saturdays, 10 a.m.–12 noon. As always, Island Casual.
