Early Birds Get the Burritos

DSC08263 These people are smart. They want El El Frijoles burritos and they line up for them at the Stonington Farmers Market *early* because Michael sells out of burritos *fast*.

DSC08251 Speaking of running out fast, if you don’t line up early at Morningstar Seafood & Guatamala Housing Alliance, you’ll miss out on the locally caught crabmeat which sometimes is in short supply. If it’s any consolation, you’ll always find some food for your soul in plenty—colorful Guatemalan handcrafts that benefit Nancy Wynne’s non profit org.

Screen Shot 2014-07-20 at 6.18.26 PM  Waters Edge Bagels & Bread Bakery is known for selling out of bagels and other yummy treats early . Tinderhearth only brings so many chocolate croissants. And Sunset Acres Farm & Dairy often sells out of your favorite cuts of meat and chicken due to the logistics of supply & demand.

Are you seeing a trend here? The Summer Folks Have Arrived! Although we can’t sell to you until the bell rings at 10AM sharp but we recommend you get to the Stonington Farmers Market early now that the summer is in full swing. We wouldn’t want you to miss out on your favorite sweets and savories. :)
