April: At The Market

When living north or east my favorite season was always the crisp and colorful autumn but now after living in Texas land for a few years my favorite season is becoming spring. Everything is in bloom and all roads and freeways are lined with pockets of green filled with wild flowers galore ranging in hues of bright reds, oranges, pinks, whites, purples and of course the infamous Texas bluebonnets – it truly makes for a spectacular walk, bike or drive. March and April is that sweet spot of beautiful get-outside-weather that’s not too hot (yet) and this years’ rain is making for some fantastic produce at the market.

What to expect at the farmers market this month:

  • gorgeous strawberries
  • bodacious blackberries
  • sweet corn
  • delectable carrots
  • fennel-y fennel
  • art-tacious artichokes
  • blooming broccoli and cauliflower
  • fresh salad greens
  • crisp spring onions
  • flavorful green garlic and leeks
  • juicy oranges and grapefruit
  • aromatic cilantro
  • perky parsley
  • snappy asparagus
  • sweet tender peas
  • creamy new potatoes
  • scrumptious sweet potatoes
  • rad radishes
  • and a few tomatoes might start to appear!
