Now that Massachusetts farm wineries may legally offer their wares at farmer's markets and other "approved agricultural events," it may be time to acquaint yourself with the surprising variety and quality of Massachusetts-made wine.
They'll be an opportunity to do just that this coming Saturday, January 29, when the Wayland Winter Farmer's Market hosts a group of farm wineries from around the state. The wineries will set up alongside the more than 30 vendors who regularly attend, including purveyors of meat, fish, vegetables, cheese, pasta -- in addition to those selling prepared foods. Participating wineries include Coastal Vineyards of South Dartmouth, Les Trois Emme Winery of New Marlborough, Obadiah McIntyre Farm Winery of Charlton, Running Brook Vineyard & Winery of North Dartmouth,and Turtle Creek Winery of Lincoln.
The Wayland Winter Farmers' Market runs weekly on Saturdays from 10 AM to 2PM through March 12 at Russell's Garden Center, 397 Boston Post Road (Route 20), Wayland.
