It’s only May 14th and already some farmers markets are bursting with products. Not just the piles of sweet asparagus, tangy ramps, gorgeous displays of annuals and lilacs you expect this time of year, but six inch long green beans and even larger zucchini! Farmers who have invested in hoop houses are changing our idea of seasonality and bringing more products earlier. So if you think it’s too early to find much at the market, think again. With the help of fresh pasta, barbequed ribs, chicken thighs, grass-fed beef, and mushrooms, I was able to purchase a week’s worth of delicious dinners that include an unexpectedly wide selection of vegetables and greens. I can’t wait to get started!
