Many of us look forward to visiting our local farmers market. Bringing home the bounty of fresh vegetables can make meals more appealing and better tasting. Who doesn’t enjoy sampling some of the fresh treats vendors offer?
How do you know how to pick the best bell pepper or Brussels sprouts? If you’ve never cooked kale, how do you know if you eat the stem, or how to best store it at home?
Put aside your fear — look for Savor the Season recipe and preparation cards when shopping at your favorite farmers market.
