For those of us in the Northeast, farmer's market season is finally upon us, and I love it. Like garage sale season, only better. While catching up with friends recently, I heard about a new farmer's market that happened to have their opening day this past weekend. I packed the kids up and away we went.
Even though the spelling mistake on the sign in this picture pains me, I loved the selection of greens that the farmers had available. I toted home quite a bit, including collard greens. Even though I'm the only one in the family who will eat collard greens, that's fine by me.
One of the things I love most about the farmer's market is discovering something new. Something I've never heard of. Or tasted. Or experienced. But then, what to do? It's simple really. I jump in with both feet and buy it. Once home, I head to MyRecipes and do a recipe search by ingredient and figure out what to do with it. It's simply the best way to discover a new love, right from the roots. Now go on now, go celebrate your own farmer's market and discover something new.
