I love the farmers market so much!
I pretty much plan all my meals around what's in season. Here in Santa Cruz, we are super lucky to have a few year-round markets... though there's just no arguing that summertime is when the market really shines.
I go to one market on Wednesday afternoon, and a different market on Saturday mornings. Going to the market is one of the highlights of my week. I love chatting with my favorite vendors, seeing friends, seeing all the beautiful bounty, getting the first ears of corn or the last week of asparagus...
~ last week's bounty ~
tomatoes, red peppers, spinach, mixed baby lettuce, summer squash, spring onions, scallions, Rainer cherries, yellow raspberries, nectarines, corn, asparagus
All organic! All local! All delicious!
