The Boston weather is not the only thing making us forget that it is actually winter, but also a new, all year round, farm stand. Sienna Farms South End opened last month, just down the street from our Boston Bed and Breakfast. Setting up shop in street level store front at 106 Waltham Street, the shop is open most days from Noon to 8PM (Tuesday – Sunday).
For those not familiar with Sienna Farms, the fifty plus acre farm, grows fresh produce for farmers’ markets, restaurants and a 300 member Community Supported Agriculture share. Nestled in the fertile soils of the Sudbury River valley, Sienna Farms is located just twenty five miles west of Boston. Although the Farm has chosen not to be USDA Organic certified, it relies on the trust of its community to recognize its meticulous efforts for natural and fresh products. During the late Spring and Summer, visiting Sienna Farms at the nearby Copley Farmers’ Market, is one of our favorite things to do in Boston.
However, at any time of year, you can find Sienna Farms present in over a dozen local Boston restaurants. Included are the pantries of some of our favorite South End restaurants, like popular Barbara Lynch restaurants B&G Oyster and The Butcher Shop. Both of Barbara Lynch’s restaurants share a convenient proximity to the new Sienna Farms. Also our beloved Jean-Georges restaurant, Market is sourcing from the Sienna Farms.With the opening of Sienna’s South End location, home cooks can now enjoy fresh local ingredients with more convenience. The farmstand’s website even features frequent recipes that help its shoppers to use the seasonal produce it makes available.
For those traveling to New England, seeking sophisticated but authentic touches of New England Cuisine and ingredients, look no further than our incredible Boston dining scene. Clarendon Square Boston Bed and Breakfast is lucky to have neighbors like Barbara Lynch and Sienna Farms, who add further distinction to our notable neighborhood.
