This weekend I had the pleasure of meeting Christine Chitnis, author of Markets of New England at the very unique Joanne Rossman Design in Roslindale Village.  She has written a delightful guide to 50 farmers and artisan markets covering six states. I couldn’t wait to hunker down with it when I got home.   Supporting regional artists and farmers in a local setting is one of the true pleasures of summer in New England.  Her research has uncovered unique, quality and undiscovered gems that I can’t wait to explore.  It was an special treat to see my own Newton Farmer’s Market included in the mix {and then I knew for sure she had found the true treasures!}

In addition to researching and writing Markets of New England, the multi-talented Christine also took all of the photographs.  She has chronicled her travels with visually stunning shots of mouthwatering food, artists at work and charming crafts that will add a unique touch to your home decor. The chapters are sectioned by state and divided into farmers markets and craft markets. There is also a resource in the back for further information on featured artists and  markets.  Ms. Chitnis has made it easy and enjoyable to support the many talented artists and farmers across New England.  She leaves us with no excuse not to Buy Local and Sustainable!
