This Week in Veggies – What’s Fresh at Your Local Farmers Market

We’ve been a part of the Westfield CSA (community supported agriculture) group for several years now. Since our farmer also delivers to local farmers markets, we think his shares are pretty representative of what other organic farmers will be bringing to their markets. Check out what we got so you can see what your farmers will have this week!

This week we found peaches, yellow plums, white onions, cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, melon, red cabbage, rainbow carrots and ground cherries in our bags.

Never tried ground cherries?  Our farmer best described them one year as looking like grapes but tasting like light pineapple.  We’ve made them into pies and tried them in preserves. Check out this recipe for ground cherry cupcake pies from!
