In  my kitchen today: the wonder of farmers' markets

In my kitchen today: the wonder of farmers' markets

The lure of fresh vegetables, glowing faces of fresh-faced farmers, conversation in the background, the scent of fresh-brewed coffee and blueberry scones. How can you resist? Best of all, they are places of inspiration for the kitchen. Farmers’ markets are in full swing, and not only can you find heirloom tomatoes, Italian zucchini and beets, but many also have fresh figs, ginger plants, artisan cheeses and breads, and a myriad of garlic varieties. Here’s a chance to purchase for the week, and plan your meals according to what you find of interest at the market. Check out the farmers’ market strata recipe for a go-to way to use whatever the market offers.
