It’s hard to believe it’s nearly July! I bought what was probably the last asapargus and strawberries of the season this week. Good thing I made my jam early! Blueberries, red and black raspberries, red currents, sour cherries are showing up at markets in abundance. I hear from farmers that peaches are going to be especially good this year. I just want to slow it all down and enjoy each week’s worth of bounty. Thanks to greenhouses and hoop houses, beautiful ripe tomatoes have been available for weeks. The creative and hardworking market farmers of Northeast Ohio are extending the season on so many of the foods we love, the “What’s in Season” charts will need modification.
With so many farmers markets available now, there’s no excuse not to feed yourself and family the best, ripest, and most delicious foods from our local farms. If you don’t know where to go, check out Debbi Snook’s great coverage of farmers markets at
