Strawberries, lettuces, and many other delicious foods are now in season! Stop by the Cache Valley Gardeners' Market to pick up the makings for a delicious meal.
The Gardeners' Market is one of my favorite Cache Valley traditions. It has been happening for 20 years now, but I hear it has grown a lot since I was last able to visit in 2009. (I moved out of state for a few years.) I am excited to see the changes, so I hope I can make it tomorrow. A leisurely stroll through the shady market is the perfect Saturday morning. Park between the Market and Tabernacle Square and you can easily walk to Summerfest, too.
See you there!
P.S.: What is your favorite thing to buy at a farmers' market? Personally I can't stay away from arugula and fresh herbs. I also hope someone will have sour pie cherries at the market this year (maybe in a week or two?). I love to eat them out of hand, so they never even make it into jam or pie around here!
