I’m dreaming of early sweet strawberries, pungent spring garlic, crispy French breakfast radishes, and thick heads of just-picked lettuce, spinach, and arugula. This Thursday my dreams will materialize before my eyes as I head to opening day at the Westport Farmers’ Market. Some big changes are in store for shoppers this year, most notably the market’s commitment to becoming GMO-Free.
Working to become GMO-free will surely be a tough row to hoe, but Market Master Lori Cochran seemed undeterred. “We’re taking baby steps, but we’ll be able to do it.”
