You’ve probably already noticed that I have a thing for farmers markets. I get a thrill every time I walk into that lively group of tables and tents, with smells of fresh strawberries, peaches, and flowers washing over me. Those stacks of colorful root vegetables, verdant leafy greens, and bright citrus fruits seem like nature’s art to me. How can anything be lovelier? I can’t resist taking home big bags of produce, like candy pink striped radishes, red okra, and the freshest asparagus to be found. And then my meals for the whole week are inspired by these delicious finds. And that’s the inspiration for my recipe roundup this month. My blogger friends share my same passion, and know just what I’m talking about when I put together this gorgeous collection of farmers market inspired recipes. So, head out to the farmers market this weekend in your own neighborhood. It’s the best time of the entire year to find berries, stone fruit, corn, melons, beans, and more. Let this beautiful recipes inspire you to enjoy summer’s bounty.
