Our Road-Side Stand
What surprises a lot of farm supporters and fresh food enthusiasts, however, is that not all road-side markets are the same. Many trucks that park in parking lots and put out farm stand looking set-ups are not selling their own food. Instead, they purchase the same food from the same regional wholesalers markets that supply Stop and Shop and other large food chains. What looks like Connecticut grown tomatoes, for example, may have been grown anywhere, and under any conditions, and transported thousand of miles.
What I hear again and again is that people like our CSA and road-side produce because they know it is grown the way they want it grown. In fact, whenever you visit our stand, you can see the fields right behind where the food was produced. And yes, sometimes when you visit it will be self-serve. That's because you really are buying from farmers, who have to head off and tend the fields. Not hang around in a parking lot.

There are many ways to prepare pea shoots. Some thoughts from friends include:
- Alone and crisp;
- In a salad with a light vinaigrette;
- On sandwiches;
- Sautéed and put into an omelette, quesadilla, or tossed with pasta; and
- Alongside some grilled tuna or salmon.
