You know how you never regret working out? That’s also how I feel after a visit to the farmer’s market. Most of the produce is certified organic, locally grown, and wallet friendly.
I spontaneously walked to the Fort Mason Farmer’s Market the past weekend, and picked out versatile produce that can be prepared in multiple ways (so you get the best bang for your buck). Although it’s always best to shop with a list, I try to have a general focus and buy whatever looks the best at the time. Sometimes a lack of planning can be refreshing and add excitement to an otherwise over-cast, humid morning.
The best thing about the Farmer’s Market is scoring a week’s worth of produce for what you might spend on a champagne brunch (but we’ll leave that for another weekend).
This weekend’s loot (all organic):
assorted summer squash
