Farmers' Market Haul

Oh, I love this time of year so much... Corn and tomatoes and basil and red peppers all start showing up, and suddenly there are million favorite recipes I can make again (and another million new recipes I can try for the 1st time). I buy about 90% of my produce at the farmers' market, so I pretty much only eat in-season foods. That makes it all the more special when my old friends reappear. Corn just showed up last week, and I think I've eaten it almost every day since then!

Here's what I got this morning:
(all organic! yeah!)
3 baskets of strawberries
a bunch of peaches and nectarines
some broccoli
Japanese cucumber
mini gem lettuces and two huge heads of Romaine lettuce
4 ears of corn
lots of little tomatoes



  1. Strawberries still? And corn? Crazy weather = awesome haul.

    1. Tami, we are so lucky here - we pretty much get strawberries from April through October, sometimes even November. They just grow and grow and grow. It's pretty great.

  2. Wow what amazing haul of veggies from Farmer Market, it all looks wonderful.

  3. I am still waiting for corn here. I want to make one of the recipes from your zine 3 years ago, pan roasted with tomatoes and tempeh bacon.

    1. That is such a great recipe!!

  4. That's a good looking load of veggies. I love when asparagus season comes in in England - you know it's going to be so short, it becomes a race to eat as much as you can as quickly as you can!

  5. Haul and how! Gorgeous stuff. I'm missing my organic CSA share this year but sadly, I would not have had the time to use it all up.

  6. I highly admire your commitment to eating seasonal/local foods! It's a reminder that I should be doing the same in the summer. We have such a short growing season here in Saskatchewan that needs to be savoured while it lasts! Everything in your haul looks awesome...I definitely want that basil!


I love comments, they really make my day!
