Viewfinder: Winter Farmers Market in Somerville

Saturday’s Winter Farmers Market at the Armory in Somerville will have foodies and connoisseurs of locally grown foods singing the praises of beautiful winter vegetables — radishes, turnips, kohlrabi, rutabega, beets. These vibrant watermelon beets are from the Misty Brook Farm in Albion, Maine. There’s also music, chocolate, and wine, meats, eggs, cheeses, and breads. Plenty of room for baby strollers, too.
