Farmers' Markets survey
Hey everyone!

I'm a huge fan of farmers' markets and eating locally grown food, and I'm thinking about starting a website where people can purchase directly from farmers.  I'm conducting an informal survey to find out whether or not people think it's a good idea.  If you shop at farmers' markets when they're in season and/if you eat locally grown organic food, I would really, really, really appreciate it if you could fill out this anonymous survey (which will take only 2 minutes).


Your input would be very helpful and it'll give me ideas on how to make the website beneficial to farmers and consumers altogether.

Thank you so much for your time! 

P.S. I wasn't sure if this post would be considered spam by the community's regulations.  If it is, I apologize profusely and you are more than welcome to remove it.

Boston Vegan Examiner
I got a position writing about veganism in Boston for this random website I have never heard of before. I have yet to actually see how much I get paid or what, but I wrote my first article!

It's for that crazy vegan ice cream cafe.

Please don't be too harsh on me!

Sorry, I'm just excited so I had to share.

Is there anywhere in Boston to buy MimicCreme? http://www.mimiccreme.com/

I have looked at Whole Foods and have not been able to find it. Any other suggestions for an easy to find cream substitute in Boston?

Vegan Brunch? Brookline's Tamarind Bay Might Deliver
From The Bostonist blog:

Recently, Bostonist checked in with Washington Square's Tamarind Bay, which opened earlier this fall. The "coastal Indian kitchen" has been doing a brisk business among Brookline's ethnic food-loving residents, who pack the blue, ocean-themed dining room on weekend evenings to sample the complex flavors of Tamarind Bay's seafood specialties and load up on their excellent naan. But during the days, the restaurant sits empty, so manager Naveen Guntupalli is considering expanding on their sizable and woefully underreported selection of vegan dishes to create an all-vegan brunch menu on weekends. Love the idea? Wish you were having a vegan brunch right now? Leave a comment here, stop into Tamarind Bay, or drop Guntapalli an email at Naveen [at] Tamarind-Bay [dot] com.

Upstairs on the Square's Harvest Vegan Dinner
We went to one of their events a while back and were impressed by not only the food but the lengths Steven went to ensuring that the wine was vegan! Fine dining and veganism can occur in the same sentence...

Tuesday, November 25th

Soirée Room – 6:30 pm

Judging from the popularity of our vegan and tomato dinners this summer, our clientele absolutely adores vegetables. And fall is the best time of year to enjoy vegan cuisine. Come try Steven Brand’s all vegan tasting menus (we feature a vegan and vegetarian tasting menu every night in the Soiree Room!) matched with Matt’s truly inspired vegan wines. Our previous vegan dinners sold out – and have been big hits – so reserve early. Presented with the Boston Vegan Association.

Four-course dinner with wine, $45
($65 with wine pairings)
Call 617-864-1933 for reservations

Help save fluffy bunnies by eating Pizza!
I know, I know, having my first post be to an event is a bit spammy, but this is to benefit cute, fluffy bunnies!

Tonight, Tuesday October 21, 4pm - 9pm only! The House Rabbit Network (HRN) is having a fund raiser at Flat Bread.

The House Rabbit Network is New England rabbit rescue groups that rehomes abandoned and neglected domestic rabbits and provides loving sanctuary homes to disabled rabbits. There will also be a raffle of goods and services donated by area businesses. You can see a list of the current raffle items at the HRN web site.

Flatbread is a unique restaurant that promotes organic farming and the community. Tuesday nights are Benefit Nights where Flatbread donates $3.50 from every large flatbread and $1.75 from a small flatbread to a local charity. HRN is honored to be the chosen charity for October 21st.

Please keep the date open and come join your friends for dinner that night at Flatbread! HRN members will be there the entire night. Hang out, eat and chat with your fellow rabbit friends. We will have a Chinese Auction with prizes too! If your schedule is tight, you can also purchase a flatbread to go, and HRN will still benefit!

Check out their menu. For vegetarians, Flatbread has many options, including a vegan flatbread or an organic salad. Check out Flatbread's website for more information about this local and generous company.

Where is Flatbread?
213 Burlington Rd, on the Bedford/Burlington line. That is the corner of rte 62 and Network Drive. Easily accessible from both routes 3 and 128/95. It is across the street from Mitre and about a mile from the Burlington Mall.

From Rt 3N exit at Rt 62 Bedford and go right off the ramp on Rt 62 (Burlington Road). Go two lights and turn right into our parking lot.

From Rt 3S (from Lowell), exit at Rt 62 Bedford and go left off the ramp on Rt 62 (Burlington Road). Go three lights and turn right into our parking lot.

From Rt 128 exit onto Rt 3 North (Lowell, Nashua) and take the first exit (Rt 62 Bedford). Go right off the ramp, east on Rt 62 (Burlington Road). Go two lights and turn right into our parking lot on the corner of Network Drive.

They also have a small, but tasty selection of draft and bottled beer, not your average Bud.

Veg on the Vineyard?
Ok, so I know this is not strictly the Boston area, but I'm hoping maybe someone knows . . .  (LMK if this is too off topic and I'll happily take it down)

Is anyone familiar with restaurants on Martha's Vineyard that are particularly vegetarian friendly?
I'm going to be there next weekend for a small family gathering and I'm sorta in charge of finding places for us all to have dinner together, so I'm looking for suggestions for places that either have a good veggie selection on their menu or are happy to make things. 
Anything from super casual to relatively nice is fine, as we'll need a few different places. 
Any ideas?

ETA: We're staying in Oak Bluffs and will probably spend most of our time there and in Vineyard Haven.

I eat curries for dinner about ten times a week. Well, that's not mathmatically possible but you know what I mean.

I am obsessed with food from cultures where religion encourages people to be veg*n.

I am having problems finding many ingredients at stores, and online it's usually in bulk and I'd get too much.

I live in Salem just north of Boston and will make a trip anywhere accessible by MBTA if needed.

I would realy like to find a local (preferably family owned) Indian grocery, and a grocery that has Southeast Asian ingredients.

Thanks in advance.

Falafel King
The bestest falafel I have EVER HAD is at Falafel King on Winter St in Boston. Not dry or like hockey pucks, tastes great and wicked cheap.

Only open weekdays for lunch but ooh so worth it. Get on the T and go go go go go

They even give you a free piece of falafel while you're waiting in line. Dipped in hummus, which I swear is homemade. Ditto with the tabouleh.

Not everything they have there is vegetarian, but most of it is. My favorite meal is the falafel salad.

Christopher's in Porter Sq is amazingly vegetarian and even vegan friendly. I highly recommend their buffalo tofu appetizer.

Anyone know of any growers using sustainable/grass-fed/organic farming techniques for raising livestock in the greater Boston area? I'd love to talk to some actual farmers on the subject.
