Remember my love for farmers’ markets?
Everything on this platter (except the seafood, of course) is fresh from the market, including this amazing head of radicchio.
The radicchio at my local grocery store is small and compact, not leafy with amazingly deep colors. I like this variety much better. It’s not nearly as bitter.
A trip to the farmers’ market is nothing short of torture for my husband, and total bliss for me.
For some reason, wandering from booth to booth and filling your basket with a variety of fruits and vegetables isn’t nearly as exhilarating for Mike, as it is for me.
At a recent trip to our local market a vender displayed bunches of carrots that caught my eye. There were lemony yellow and deep purple carrots bundled in with your typical orange variety. It didn’t take long for me to add them to my basket.
As you can see, my camera didn’t do these tasty vegetables justice, or maybe it was the photographer.
