I couldn’t resist. I am fully and completely in love with summer. Here is why:
Siena Farms’ sunflowers filled the Boylston Street side of the market, a tiny bit of Tuscany in Boston.
It was so beautiful and colorful it was almost dizzying.
Challah bread from Tatte
Apples and peaches for pies, crisps, salads, and snacks. The arrival of apples makes me look forward to autumn.
Perhaps my favorite part of summer, fresh, local tomatoes. None of those white-fleshed, dry winter tomatoes. I need to learn to do some canning.
My farm basket, ingredients to recreate the couscous dish I had at Zazu in Santa Rosa.
The market was full of sweet corn, perfect for making sriracha corn and shrimp salad.
Japanese eggplant, ready for a coconut curry or a nice pasta sauce. . . the colors at the market are nature’s art.
Yes, the Copley Farmers’ Market is a great reminder that life is very good when things seem a little too hard.
How do you snap out of a funk and remember how great life truly is?
