There is nothing better than fresh produce. I enjoy walking through the farmers market seeing the bounty of the day. I try not to have a recipe in mind when I go, that way it seems more Top Chef. Actually, it is because I am not sure what produce will be fresh. You don’t want to plan on making grilled corn and then find out it is not available. Either way, the Farmers Market is the place to be on the weekend. See you there.
