The weekend’s almost here and if it’s anything like last week it will be A)hot as satan’s personal sauna and B) a great time to hit the farmers market. The Raleigh Farmers Market was crawling like an ant hill with patrons Saturday but luckily the produce was in no short supply. Here’s a sampling (and by sampling I mean roughly 5%) of this month’s lot:
Peaches, nectarines, plums, berries and astro-turf galore.
Sweet Peas, Green Beans, and young Yellow Wax Beans.
The first of the peppers, small and colorful but wait another few weeks for the big guys.
Perfectly ripe beefsteak tomatoes, sadly not many other varieties. Only one farmer selling heirlooms, pull it together guys.
Truckbed after truckbed filled with sweet corn.
Broccoli, cabbage and trip-inducing cauliflower.
Every freaking variety of squash or zucchini known to man (except cucuzza…).
And twisting some OG caps to cool off while hunting for the day’s bests. Dig up your tank top and daisy dukes, grab some cash and hit your local market this weekend to score some tasty veg. If you find anything exciting post it on the GiustoGusto Facebook wall so I can keep an eye out for future noshing.
