I love the week when the Farmer’s Market opens. There are several that open in our city after Memorial Day.
This morning I visited a small one not too far from our house. There is something about strolling beneath the white and yellow striped canopies and browsing through the not-so-perfect vegetables that our local farmers display.
See the little discoloration of the tomato up front? I love that…that means goodness and yummy, juicy, fresh-grown, ripe-bursting with flavor tomatoes that will be a joy in any salad or dish you may serve them in.
I was super excited to see these little darlings…
You don’t often see shallots in our grocery stores…at least not fresh ones.
I love these little babies….
Pattypan squash. These are going to go into a recipe, soon to come – maybe Creamed Pattypan or Rosemary-Parmesan Crispy Oven Fried Squash.
I may have to finish this post later…I’m getting hungry.
I got these squash also. The back one is a regular zucchini.
The front? I have no idea. The little man in overalls who sold it to me, and who looked straight off the pages of a Norman Rockwell painting, said in his twangy southern accent…”That thar’s yeller squash young lady”.
First of all, I love the little man in overalls for calling me “young”, and second I have seen yellow squash so I pointed at it and said, “I thought that was yellow squash”.
He looked at me like I had 3 heads and said “Nawww, that thar is crook’d neck squash”.
I guess I don’t know my squash very well….
So there ya have it ya’ll, I’m off to conjer up a recipe for that thar yeller squash.
Visit and support your local Farmer’s Market this weekend. It’s great fun!If you like this post, you might like these as well!
