Fresh Produce

Our neighborhood farmers market, which is held at East Lake United Methodist Church, opened the first Saturday in May. I love picking out fresh produce and planning meals around what’s available. Today, the variety was terrific! As you can see, I had little self-restraint in my purchases. But all of this produce cost about $25, and we will enjoy numerous meals from it. Our market offers a basket subscription for 12 weeks; this begins June 9 and goes through October 6. The basket contains a representation of what each farmer brings to market that week.  If you live in Birmingham and would like to know more about this market, click here.
