Purple Scallions, Rainbow Chard, a Bevy of Berries, and More
Just a few photos from a recent trip to the farmers’ market at Copley Square in Boston. So much good stuff there, including a few vegetables and fruits I’ll bet you’ve never seen before…
Quite the palate of brilliantly hued fruits and vegetables, yes?
I’m willing to bet that you a) saw at least one thing here you’ve never seen before and b) cannot get such things at your local supermarket. Am I correct? Do let me know. (I love it when I’m right.) Nevertheless, if you are lucky enough to have access to a local farmers’ market, I implore you to check it out. There’s no better time than the heart of summer to get the freshest and most interesting produce to add intrigue and beauty to your next dish. And you can feel good about supporting your local businesses and farmers, too.
