Thursday was the opening of Framingham's first Winter Farmers Market at First Parish Church hall. Students from the preschool downstairs took the opportunity to explore and discover new things. Pictured is Framingham Centre Nursery School student Sadie Olin, 4, checking out a live lobster, which she told the other preschoolers was not scary to touch as his claws were taped. Shoppers were picking up fresh fish - haddock and cod were sold out by 1 p.m. - bread, scones, jams, jellies, vegetables and holiday greens and wreaths. The winter farmers market, managed by Jackie Meninno, will be open the first Thursday monthly at the church's hall.
