I realize that I always say one of the best ways to save money at the farmers market is to buy what is in season but I never blog about what is in season or what I’m buying. I thought I would take you WITH me to the beautiful, epic Santa Monica Farmers Market for a little peek at what is in season now.
Eggplant – When I saw eggplant a few weeks ago I let out a squeal of delight. I LOVE eggplant and please note that there are about 5 varieties at this booth alone.
Heirloom Tomatoes – Both minis and full size perfect for Grilled Heirloom Tomatoes
Bunches of herbs – Actually these are pretty much available year round, $1 for a bunch!
Summer Squash – Again, squeals of glee when I spotted these a few weeks ago! I’ve been using them in this risotto recipe to make summer risotto.
Papaya Melon – Like honeydew but 100% better! Sweet and mild, this is what I use in my Prosciutto Melon Salad.
Carrots – Normally I associate these with Fall, they are so good when honey roasted.
Ginormous Artichokes – Grilled artichokes are good but I need to find other recipes.
Berries – So summer.
What are you loving at the farmers market right now?
