August – The Best Produce from the Farmers Market

August 8, 2020

Tis the season to stock up on fresh produce (and flowers) from your local farmers market. It doesn’t matter what you buy, you can create your own recipes! Most fruits can stand on their own for breakfast or a simple dessert. Really fresh veggies only require a little sprinkle of good salt (like Maldon sea salt flakes), and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.

Summer farmers markets are flush with great produce and August is perhaps the best month of the year. Farmers from all regions of the country have just about the same types of produce—with only a few exceptions. According to the USDA, here’s a list of what you will typically find in season during August:

• Apples
• Apricots
• Blackberries
• Blueberries
• Cantaloupe
• Figs
• Grapes
• Lemons
• Peaches
