Summer melons from my local farmers market. Want to make me smile? This should do it.
We’ve been enjoying some summer excursions–which have been a total blast–that have caused us to miss our weekly fave farmers market–which is a total drag. But this week we were in town!
From time to time I post my treasured farmers market produce for your viewing enjoyment. This photo features the famous hand of my farmers market sidekick, Josie. She wanted me to say that.
I am not one of those healthy-foody-type gurus who make people feel guilty by saying things like “You should really be buying your produce from a local farmers market.”
There are high points in every growing season, though. Right now is one of those moments. Summer fruits and vegetables are at a real peak in So-Cal. Besides these gorgeous melons, stone fruit (peaches, plums, etc…), tomatoes and green beans are also in a real state of cha-cha.
If you haven’t been to a farmers market in a while, my advice for well rounded summer bucket list is to hit one in the next three to four weeks. In other words: You should really by buying your produce from a local farmers market! Maybe not every week, all your produce, all the time, as a life style. If that ain’t your gig; fine. I’m not judging.
However, if you don’t get your hands on one of these farmers market melons soon, I’m here to tell ya: you will be missing out on a real treat.
