I was visiting family in Massachusetts recently and spent one afternoon walking around beautiful South Boston. The up-and-coming neighborhood boasts a slew of amazing restaurants, adorable boutique shops and quaint brownstone-lined blocks. Walking along Waltham Street we came upon Plum Produce. The large glass windows showcased colorful fruits and vegetables in a perfectly bright setting. The little shop is a haven of fresh, local produce and specialty items picked by shop owner and chef Barbara Lynch. Lynch opened Plum Produce to give the home-cook the same opportunity to consistently find the top-notch fruits & vegetables available to chefs. If you live in the Boston area I suggest you make your way to Plum Produce for the freshest seasonal fare. If you can’t make it to the store, let yourself be inspired by the beautiful images on the site, or try your hand at one of the featured recipes. — Erica P.
