My family recently went on vacation and visited some other farmers markets in the area we were staying only to find out that the produce they were selling came from our lovely state of Indiana. It was a treat to know the veggie came from my home state but it made me miss out local produce vendors at the Southside Farmers Market and the Southport Farmers Market. So, as soon as we got home I made it a point to make sure I stopped in at the Southside market to get my fresh vegetables for our supper.
I know the vendors at our markets grow the produce they sell so I knew I would only get the freshest goodies. I picked up some zucchini, yellow squash, cucumber, green pepper, blueberries, corn on the cob, a head of cabbage, and some green beans brought them home and started cooking even before I star Ted unpacking from va cation.
I cut the cabbage into quarters, clipped the green beans, sliced the zucchini and yellow squash and popped those veggies into a cast iron skillet with some butter and garlic, sautéed until just right. I boiled the corn and we set down for dinner in less than 20 minutes. O my goodness you can really taste the freshness and it was sooooo good.
This is the best part of summer – getting those fresh vegetables and being able to enjoy them shortly after they have been harvested. Another great advantage of the Southside market and Southport Market is that you can buy those smaller amounts and don’t have to worry about them going bad before you cook them. And they are really fresh chalked full of vitamins and flavor. It doesn’t get any better than that.
When you are shopping for those fresh vegetables think of visiting the Southside Farmers Market or the Southport Farmers Market and I can guarantee you will not be disappointed. Hope to see you all soon at one of our markets.
