Summer is around the corner with the lure of outdoor fun. While I can get almost all the groceries I need from a typical grocery store, I love walking leisurely under the sun through stands of fresh foods in a farmers’ market and hopefully, coming across a few interesting items that I can’t find in most grocery stores.

After snatching a bit of every new discovery, I’m ready for my next task: to come up with recipes for these rarities. It will take some time, but I know I’ll have fun. Of course, this isn’t a comprehensive list of all of the unique things in farmer’s markets…part of the fun is constantly discovering new ingredients!
What are some of your favorite farmer’s market vegetables? A couple of mine that are fresh heirloom tomatoes and rainbow carrots. I wish everyone a fun summer in discovering new things!
