From Ludlow to Natick, mini farmers’ markets are expected to pop up at the Mass Pike’s rest stops, reports the Globe. The markets, which will sell everything from broccoli to honey, are targeted toward commuters, but seem like they might be even more helpful for those on their way to relatively remote vacation stops (grab some tomatoes before you hit the Berkshires!). Thus far, only Charlton’s market is operational, but the others are expected to start serving soon. The Pike farmers’ market season runs Thursdays through Sundays from now through late fall. This is even better news than when Ben & Jerry’s started cropping up at the Pike’s rest stops.
