May 1 marked the opening day at one of most popular local farmer’s markets, which features seasonal produce, locally grown poultry, local cheese, baked goods, beautiful eggs of various colors, all kinds of things to eat, musical entertainment and neighborly chat. Going to the market is one of my weekend rituals from May to October, second only to the trip to the CSA farm. Being able to have freshly asparagus, rhubarb, lettuce, spinach and dandelion greens is a rediscovered treat and gets the juices flowing for simple preparations that bring out the fresh flavors. May 1 truly signals a new beginning in our culinary adventures.
