How to Make the Most of a Farmer’s Market

Go in with ideas, but not a concrete plan

Walking through a farmer’s market can give you tons of inspiration for seasonal, fresh cuisine. There is always plenty of fresh produce to buy, but since the growing season changes so rapidly, there’s no guarantee that whatever you liked last week will be around this week. It’s important to go in with a few ideas, but if you’re heading to the market with a super-specific list, you may be disappointed.

If you’re serious about doing the farmer’s market right, invest in a cookbook which lists recipes by season, and learn the schedule of the growing season in your area. That way, you’ll always have ideas in the back of your mind.
