I love going to farmers' markets in the summer and fall. The older dudes remind me of my maternal grandfather. He didn't sell his produce, but he did plant and harvest a garden every year.
You can see this week's farmers' market selections above. The cantaloupe might be enjoyed sliced and dusted with chili pepper. The corn is destined for a bean salad. The green beans will be lightly cooked and then tossed with a vinaigrette. The okra will be fried with a panko coating. And the flowers are just because.
