Seasonal Sunday: March 27 – April 2

March 27, 2011

Don’t you just love being out in the sun? We have our market bags bursting with the colorful produce of Spring. We have artichokes, asparagus, pea shoots, rhubarb, carrots, and avocados. We spied fresh dungeness crabs, halibut, wild salmon and spot prawns gracing the local markets, too. We’ll miss cooking with kohlrabi, pumpkins and butternut squash as they make way for this season’s bounty, but nothing beats the fresh greens this season brings. It’s a wonderful time to be out and about, so take a bag with you and pay a visit to your local farmers market!
