The recent heat and humidity are deceptively summer-like. Before the season is officially upon us, be sure to take advantage of the bounty of spring from area farmers tailgate markets. A wonderfully refreshing way to do that is with a fresh, crisp, and locally-sourced spring salad.
Visiting area farmers tailgate markets can often be a delightful adventure! Each and every week there are discoveries to be made: seasonal produce newly available for the first time this year and unknown, obscure varieties; exquisite beauty to appreciate in vibrant flowers and handmade crafts. Produce, too can be an aesthetic wonder as well as an edible one. Markets are also places full of familiarities: the faithful vendors there every week throughout the seasons; the friendly faces of fellow community members; and the staples that nourish bodies and souls alike, such as bread and eggs.
