Cooking From The Farmer's Markets . . . what's on your table these days?

Breadcrumbs | Aug 3, 201106:14 AM

This is an exciting time at the farmer’s markets where I live (in Southern Ontario, Canada). Luscious stone fruits and a wide variety of vegetables are in abundance. We also have our own, small herb and vegetable garden that has now started to yield super-sweet, juicy tomatoes, zucchini flowers, garlic scapes and, lots of lovely herbs.

Fresh from the vine or ground, this produce is the inspiration for most of our meals at this time of year and I imagine many other hounds are doing the same thing.

I thought it might be fun to start a thread to post an account of what’s on our plates these days. Where do you live and what’s fresh these days at your market? What wonderful meals are you creating with the season’s best? Are you using family recipes, creating your own dishes, delving into seasonal cookbooks? I’ll post my dishes here and I’m hoping others will join me in sharing meals, favourite cookbooks, recipes and stories.

FYI, here’s a link to a thread on Seasonal Cookbooks if you’re looking for some inspiration:

So, what are you cooking from the farmer’s markets?
