July: At The Market

by evh on July 2, 2012


We are in it folks. Yes, summer is here and she’s brought a lot of long hot days already and it looks like she’s planning to stay for quite some time. The good news is that her suitcase is packed with a bounty of fresh, juicy, flavorful and colorful fruits and vegetables so this is one guest we don’t mind having around … for a little while anyway.

*Please note: July and August are the toughest months for the farmer’s markets by far due to lower production and heat – As with any month produce comes and goes but I am still seeing local berries, herbs and the like but I am sure they will be done before the month is out so stock up now!

What to expect at the farmers market this month:

  • opulent okra
  • tempting tomatoes
  • bold blackberries
  • ambrosial zucchini
  • intriguing eggplant
  • sweet corn
  • splendrous strawberries
  • grandios garlic
  • plush plums
  • sensational cucumbers
  • hot, hot, hot peppers
  • nectarious peaches
  • lavish leeks
  • peppery baby arugula
  • sumptuous watermelon
  • scrumptious melons
  • delectable carrots
  • fun fennel
  • figgy figs
  • fresh salad greens
  • teary onions
  • aromatic cilantro and parsley
  • sweet tender peas
