Tomorrow is Saturday, the best day of the week. Market day.
There are markets on Tuesday and Thursday, but they’re smaller. Saturdays bring more sellers and buyers. It’s a big social event, centered on food. So very French.
I have my favorite vendors. I try to stick to seasonal produce. It is better in season, and the lack of it out of season makes it all the more special when it’s available.
The apples have appeared. The nectarines and peaches are still going strong, but you can tell they’re going to get farineuse–mealy–pretty soon.
There are plenty of tomatoes, and now that the heat has broken, it’s time to make spaghetti sauce.
An adieu to summer….
Do you cook from scratch? What will you miss most about summer’s bounty?
