Farmers' market finds: What to buy this July

Posted by Cariset on

Summer is the season for farmers' markets. While you can often find the same produce in your grocery store all year round (thanks to imported fruit),  I prefer sticking to fruits and veggies that are actually in season -- they're fresher, cheaper, and they taste better! 

What's in season now that it's July? Read on for my recs on what you should look for at your local farmers' market.

Which vegetables are in season?

Here's what to look for in July:
What about fruit?

My favorites:
  • Watermelon
  • Cantaloupe¬†
  • Berries:¬†strawberries, blueberries, raspberries
  • Stone fruits: peaches, apricots, plums
    • These make for great desserts on their own¬†or grilled
Anything else?
 
I like to look for flowers, honey, and any other local specialties (think cheese, fresh pasta, salsas, etc.). Farmers' markets are great for discovering local delicacies. Snag those free samples and go wild!
