We’re nonetheless consuming tidbits from the market journey nearly every week in the past in case you can imagine it, and I’m itching to return for one more crack at this scrumptious bread and extra importantly, this handcrafted native butter – just some of my favorite finds from the final go to.

This tremendous tasty salad is a results of combining a few of my favorite summer time crops – freshly shelled peas, minced cilantro, and yellow zucchini so candy and tender it’s best loved uncooked. Add to it corn that’s grilled on the barbecue when you put together all the pieces else, and also you’ve received a tasty summer time addition that’s nearly as good by itself because it tossed with black beans, pasta, or greens.
