Eat fresh, seasonal, and locally-grown produce. That is what a Farmers Market encourages you to do and so does this new cookbook. With 251 color images, it is filled with lots of traditional, time-tested, and delicious recipes for everything from corn and brussels sprouts to tomatoes and rutabaga. Designed to be small and portable, you can take this book to the market, identify the item by photograph, read a brief description, and see at a glance the most common ways for preparing the vegetable. Each plant is then referenced to simple, easy-to-prepare recipes that only use other ingredients found in the farmers market. This book is a perfect resource for anyone interested in "eating fresh, eating local."
Jennifer Loustau and her husband have a 2-acre "farmette" in Chester County, Pennsylvania, that provides most of their year-round food. They sell herbs, eggs, honey, and herbal foods at the Kennett Square Farmers Market.
