Flavorless FRESH Farmer's Market Green Beans??!!!

aurora50 | Aug 13, 2011 09:41 PM

I live in the greater Los Angeles area. My sister and I picked up some beautiful, fresh, unbruised green beans at the local Farmer's Market Night. "Whoopee, I'll have some wonderful tasting green beans, because they're fresh from the Farmer's Market!!" I said to myself.
Well, I gently steamed them, and simply added some salt and butter, because I wanted to taste the green beans. And they hardly had any flavor at all, and actually tasted WORSE than the green beans I usually get at Stater Bros. Market!!!
What gives? Are all farmers different, and can I not depend on fresh produce just because it is fresh? Or something else?
I was really disappointed!!!!
