Celebrate summer’s bounty by shopping at one of the area’s many Farmers Markets and enjoy getting creative in the kitchen with fresh, farm-to-table produce. Throughout the summer, we’ll feature a simple-yet-nutritious recipe for savoring your market haul.

It’s not often that we get to shake the hand of the grower who picked your red, juicy tomato. But at the region’s many summertime farmers markets, shoppers can leisurely sample a farm-fresh peach, hand-pick the perfect pint of berries and high-five a farmer. And of course, you can enjoy the taste, variety, freshness and nutritional value of area-grown produce. 

Here’s a roundup of the region’s farmers markets and a seasonal recipe to enjoy all the goodness the season has to offer.
