The Market Boat

Our organic groceries and breads arrive each Friday morning in summer at exactly 9 A.M. Long before I see David Berry's Long Island Sound oyster boat glide into Christmas Cove I hear him ringing the old brass school bell that once belonged to his Grandmother. David and his beautiful wife Allison (pictured above) keep the boat loaded with jams and jellies, chutneys and salsas, breads, exquisite vegetables, fruits, and cheeses.

Friday mornings at the dock are a time for all the neighbors to catch up on the island's happenings. Sometimes Milo rides along with David and plays his violin at each landing.
