GRAFTON, Mass. - Fire Star Liquors will be adding something a little less alcoholic to their wares: fresh produce.
The Board of Selectmen on Tuesday granted a peddler's permit to Dennis Walsh of Charlton, who will set up a farm stand in the Worcester Street liquor store's parking lot to sell fresh produce throughout the summer.
"I have trucks that go to farms seven days a week so it will be fresh daily," said Walsh, who operates several other small farm stands in Central Mass.
Walsh is working with Five Star Liquors owner Kirti Patel to set up shop for the farm stand, which he expects will open around June 20.
"We won't start until the sweet corn is available," Walsh said.
The stand will be open daily through Labor Day. Walsh said the bulk of his produce comes from farms in the Connecticut River Valley, although he said he would be willing to work with Grafton-area farmers who might want to sell their wares there.
