If you haven’t been to a farmers market the first visit can be intimidating. You will find rows and rows of fruits, vegetables and sometimes bakery. The key is to think about which type of vegetables you like and zero in on them. After that pick one new fruit/vegetable you will try this week. The prices at our farmers market are pretty uniform, I think because the vendors have agreed not to compete. When I’m in a hurry I buy whatever is closest to the entrance and leave. Other times I walk through savoring the colors, shapes and smells of the produce.
I have included my farmers market stirfry recipe with the vegetables I used. Almost any vegetables will work, except those with a very strong flavor, like turnips.
It’s an easy recipe to follow through the photos and breif captions.
After the short investment of time to clean and cut the vegetables(about 20 minutes,) it is quick to make.
If you have a farmers market near you it can be a very inexpensive way to go for summer eats. I bought everything I needed for this stirfry, plus rasberries for dessert for for $12.50. Add $.50 for rice and $1.25 for tofu and it’s a $14.25 meal for a family of four.
Look for Sundays full menu, including farmers market vegetable bake.
