June 2016 Market Thymes
The summer season is upon us and oh, what glorious fruits and vegetables abound! Everything from stone fruit and berries to peppers, tomatoes, corn and summer squash is arriving at your farmers’ market.
- Stone fruit appears this month. Get out the canning jars and preserve the sweet taste of summer, make a pie, or eat in hand.
- It’s barbecue time. Toss some zucchini and peppers on the grill or cut a big fat peach in half and add to the grill for a sweet dessert.
- Juicy heirloom tomatoes will have you singing their praises. Simple salads or a big slab of tomato on a sandwich are the best ways to eat these beauties - simply.
- Berries Abound. Check out the array of fresh berries right now - strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries, all for easy and delicious summer eating.
The best part of June is the variety and flavor of its produce. Enjoy the sweet taste of summer in the coming months!
