Our local farmer's market opened this morning, which means I can barely get this written between taking bites of my locally grown lunch. Heck, my editors are lucky the market isn't open all day, or I may have missed a few deadlines today!
Since it's early in the season, our local market was plentiful with fresh spring greens, radishes, rhubarb and asparagus.
But, the true find of the day was a head of butter crunch lettuce. The velvety texture, mild flavor and pale color truly means summer is just around the corner. Since this is one of the first lettuces of the season to grow in the midwest, it's always an early garden-season treat.
Is your farmer's market open for business? What local whole foods are you enjoying?
