Yeah! The farmer’s markets are here. Every year I wait for the opening day. My friend Toni and I have been going for several years now, getting up on Saturday mornings to meet at 7:30. We go early, before the crowds, before the veggies have been picked over and handled by everyone, before the vendors have completely finished setting up. It’s cool, and mostly quiet still, everyone’s day is just starting. It takes till June and July before the local produce starts coming in, but there’s something wonderful to be found every week. Take a look….
This is just one long run on pictures, isn’t it? But surely, surely, you’ve seen something you want here? I’m so excited and happy about the farmer’s market, I just get silly. A couple more?
No recipes today. Just the hope that something in the photos will inspire you to go to your local farmer’s market and see what they have. Meet your local vendors and farmers, they’re great people and I know they’ll be thrilled to see your smiling happy faces there! I’ll show you what I’ve been getting there, give you some simple preparations and recipes all summer. And if you’re up for an early morning, come and walk with us, I’ll be the one with the overloaded giant pink straw bag!
