Gather your family or a few good friends, and take a Saturday morning stroll around the local farmers market. In this community environment, you can savor summer's bounty of freshly picked fruits and vegetables in an array of colors and flavors. In addition to peak produce, many markets offer flowers by the bunch, handmade crafts, and live local entertainment. We've showcased the abundant produce in the recipes here. They're easy to make, and knowing you selected fresh ingredients from a local vendor will make them taste even better.
