There were cherries today! The first stone fruit of the season finally arrived, and they were surprisingly delicious. I had trouble focusing on much else.
Luckily despite my excitement I still had enough wits about me to grab some heirloom tomatoes, basil and fresh mozzarella. The mission: caprese salad. The verdict: awesome. Yep, the heirloom tomatoes are finally tasty.
Peas and fava beans are huge at the farmers market right now: sugar snap peas as well as snow peas and English shelling peas.
The asparagus season is peaking right now, so be sure you get your fill in the coming weeks.
I also found a rare delicacy today, green almonds. Though they were more developed and less sweet than I remember them from last year, it was still exciting to see them and I’ll definitely be trying them again this season.
And aren’t kumquats pretty?
Do you have cherries yet at your farmers market?
