If you live in the Midwest or the northeastern part of the U.S. this is peak season. Farmers markets are just bursting with some of the most amazing, fresh and delicious produce you can possibly imagine.

Fresh Wax Beans.

You can’t have a summer farmers market without sweet corn. This is so sweet, it’s hard to not eat three ears at one sitting. One sack wouldn’t last a week in our house!

Summer tomatoes. Juicy, ripe and super fresh.

And last (for this market tour), carrots that are too amazing to resist.
