Slowhand Sharpening — Every Saturday At Farm Fresh

Knives out! And pruners and axes and scissors. In addition to the grinding wheel, traditional Japanese whetstone sharpening is also available, by the inch. (See IG) A good sharp knife makes such a difference — no more sawing and pushing. Corey Pacheco of Slowhand Sharpening is one of the regulars at the Farm Fresh Winter Markets; in the summer he is at Lippitt Park on Hope Street. (I’m sure Mr. Pacheco has heard a zillion “knives out” references by now . . . I just couldn’t stop myself.) The Slowhand grinding station can be found on the left shortly after you enter; it abuts Wright’s Creamery which I also recommend.

Food vendors at the market offer a range of produce, seafood, shellfish, baked goods, charcuterie, cheese, chocolate, herbs, dog treats, and more. It can vary from week-to-week; go here for the February list. No dogs allowed per order of the Health Department.

A food truck or two are usually on site.
