One more thing ...

Make Tuesday special

At a farmers market

By Connie Haas Zuber

Did you know there are FIVE farmers markets open tomorrow — which I thought was going to be a perfectly ordinary Tuesday. 

Maybe my lesson learned can make your Tuesday better, too. We are at the peak of fresh fruit and vegetable season, and adding a farmers market flair to tomorrow's lunch and dinner is guaranteed to improve the whole day. 

My handy Indiana farmers markets guide completely demonstrates what a peak of the season  this week is. The possibilities you might find fresh and healthy at your farmers market include: Apples, beets, blueberries (nearing the end of this glorious season), Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cantaloupe, carrots, eggplant, grapes, hot peppers, mushrooms, onions, peaches (I've had some great ones already this year), plums, potatoes, raspberries, snap beans, summer squash, sweet corn (we like the farm stand on Bass Road), sweet peppers, tomatoes, watermelon and winter squash (sadly for summer produce lovers, fall IS next in line).

So I can plan the rest of the week, let me know what you found that was great at the market you attend. And remember that our events listing online is ready 24/7 to help you find a farmers market whenever you find the time to shop.
