My first taste of the day was this lobster taco from the Newburyport Crab Cake Company. A soft tortilla topped with warm lobster, cole slaw, and spicy aioli. Might have been the best thing I ate all day!
This pulled pork sandwich is from the famous Redbones out of Somerville MA. Their food truck was on of the many present on Saturday along with Grilled Cheese Nation and The Dining Car.
Sofra Bakery had sweet & savory pastry items like Shanklish Fatayer, Cornmeal Apple Snacking Cake, and Butternut Squash Tart. I opted for the Pumpkin Jam Tart which was to die for.
The longest line I saw was at the Calendar Islands booth where people were anxiously waiting to try their Maine lobster cakes. Unfortunately I was full by this point, but thankfully had gotten my lobster fix earlier in the day.
One of the items I regret passing up is the sunshine watermelon from the Rockville Market Farm from Starksboro VT. Along with fruit and butternut squash soup, RMF brought a mini farmer’s market and was selling organic veggies, pastured meats, and organic eggs.
