Savor the Flavors of Late Summer! 🌽🍑🍅

As the warm days of summer draw to a close, our local farmers’ markets are bursting with vibrant colors and flavors. It’s the perfect time to indulge in the juicy sweetness of seasonal fruits and the crisp crunch of garden-fresh vegetables.

Don't forget the amazing array of meat and proteins to accompany your veggies and fruit, along with the many treats from our stall holders.

 Let’s explore what’s ripe and ready for your table:

Fruits in Season:

  1. Figs: These velvety gems are at their peak during late summer. Slice them up for a simple snack or pair them with creamy cheeses for an elegant appetizer.
  2. Peaches and Nectarines: Sink your teeth into these fragrant stone fruits. Whether you enjoy fresh or grilled, their succulent flesh is a taste of sunshine.
  3. Berries: Blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries are like little bursts of summer joy. Scatter them over yogurt, blend them into smoothies, or bake them into pies.

Vegetables Abound:

  1. Bell Peppers: Vibrant and crunchy, bell peppers come in a rainbow of colors. Stuff them with quinoa, roast them for salads, or enjoy them raw.
  2. Beets: Earthy and nutritious, beets add color to your plate. Roast them with olive oil and herbs or grate them into salads.
  3. Chillies: Spice up your meals with fresh chiles! From mild to fiery, there’s a pepper for every palate.

Don’t Miss Out!
