Most of us know how to use the lettuce, tomatoes, onions and potatoes we bring home from the farmers market each week. But if you’re browsing your local market’s stands this summer, you might come across some unfamiliar, seasonal veggies. Don’t skip over these delicious finds! If you do, you’re missing out on learning about new ingredients, recipes and flavors. Plus, shopping for in-season produce can save money, as these items are often cheaper and more abundant than others at the market.
Ditch the fear and double up on adventurous, new ingredients all summer long. If you stumble across an unusual veggie at your local market, ask the grower about it. Farmers are full of ideas and recipes for most of their items. Check out the list below to learn more about some unusual, seasonal produce you’ll find at the market this month.
