See Food - Green City Market's July Colors

By Anthony Todd in Food on Jul 20, 2011 9:00PM

Every time we go to a farmer's market, we're amazed by how much has changed from the week before. One of the best things about talking to farmers and buying local produce is that you get back in touch with the seasonality of food - when things are available and at their peak. Right now, the colors of the market are bursting into full bloom, as the market moves out of its green period and into the bright oranges, purples and reds of mid-summer. It's not quite peak harvest time yet, but if you haven't been to the market lately, go on Saturday.

Or, if you have a bit of cash and want an exclusive look at the chefs that support the market, go to the Green City Market BBQ tomorrow - there are just a few tickets left.
