Now In Season at Your Local Markets

Parsnips and lots of Squash

A Mountain of Beans

Fresh Chick Peas in the Pod, Hummus Maybe?

Bing Cherries

It seems that now the rain has finally gone for the year and with the much better weather brings the start of the Summer harvest of fruits and vegetables. Right now I am seeing cherries everywhere from roadside stands to the many stalls at farmers markets.  The quality is really good and they are sweet too. Last of the the season fava beans, asparagus, artichokes are available for a little while longer. Stone fruits are also beginning to show up in time for the many fruit cobblers that are a Summer time tradition. Get out there and buy it now; we only have a few more months 'till fall begins.
