This Week 

One of the comments we frequently
hear is about the
HFM's fabulous Hingham Harbor location. And last week market-goers were lucky to be on the scene to watch the Hingham High School varsity eight (above) attempt to break the world record of hauling a water skier - and they did it! Reporting on the record-breaking event, USA Today wrote: "By pulling the team's coxswain (and waterskier) Cotter McCarthy for 4:08.22, the Harbormen easily topped the record of 54 seconds previously held by the crew team at Stanford University." Congratulations! (For the full story, read more at
     A reminder if you want the tastiest turkey around - order it now from Copicut Farms. It's easy: just visit them at their stand and place your order for a small, medium or large turkey ($5.69/lb., $35 deposit). Pick up is Sunday, November 20, 1 to 3 p.m., at the Hingham Bathing Beach (HFM parking lot). If you can't make it to the market to order a turkey, go to their site at and visit the online store. The turkeys from Copicut Farms are the best tasting turkeys around.

Fall Bounty
     As much as we all love tomatoes, corn, berries and other early to mid-season
     produce, one has to admit that this array is a stunning selection of fall
     offerings from 
HFM vendors Oakdale, Freitas and Second Nature farms.
     With the warm weather we've had this fall, this bounty should continue for the
     foreseeable future.
