Farmer's Market

Do you have a Farmer's Market near you? I just love going to them!

Farmers' markets are a great place to find the freshest sweet corn, the reddest, ripest tomatoes and the most fragrant, flavorful strawberries. You can taste heirloom varietals and sample hard-to-find items like ramps, morel mushrooms, cardoons and quince. Many market vendors provide recipes and cooking tips for their products. Some markets sell house-made jams and hearth-baked breads, free-range chickens and fresh eggs, making gathering ingredients for tonight's dinner a snap.

We went to one last week and picked up a nice variety of both fruits and vegetables, as well as some home made bread that was heavenly!

Next time you see a Farmer's Market, stop in! I'm sure you'll be eating healthy that night!
