New Student-Run Sandwich Stand at the Farmer’s Market

Do you enjoy sandwiches? Are you too busy gambling to stop to eat and thus require your sustenance between leavened bread? Just like eating local? Damiano Marchetti ’12 writes in to let us know about a cool new booth at this week’s farmer’s market:

We’re opening up a sandwich stand at the farmer’s market and this week we’ll be making sandwiches with eggplant, fennel yogurt, arugula from Urban Oaks farm, and pickled red onions all on a baguette from CT’s very own Howard the baker. Bring your friends. Walk quickly.
Love,
Will + Damiano
