Ramps. Rhubarb. Quince. Mouse melons. What do these things have in common? There’s a good chance you’ve never heard of at least one of them, but they’re items you might find at your local farmers market. Your market is likely at its peak right now – so we encourage you to check it out and stock up on fresh fruits and veggies. And we’ve also got a special challenge to help you expand your healthy palate:
Choose a type of produce you’ve either never seen, never eaten or never prepared at home before, and find a recipe to put it to good use. It’s a fun, end-of-summer activity that you can enjoy with your kids. And it can be a clever way of introducing them to new healthy foods.
And speaking of recipes, you can find hundreds of them on the Healthy Lifestyles website and on our Pinterest page.
Here’s to making the most of your farmers market finds,
