We asked our farmers to send us their favorite recipes using farmers' market fruits and vegetables—whether it's a favorite "go to" meal, something that they make only when a certain fruit or vegetable is at its peak flavor, or an old family favorite that's been handed down to them. This one comes from Victoria of Laurel Glen Farm in Shelton, CT and it uses summer squash and zucchini, which are both plentiful early in the growing season. This one is super-easy and would be a great side dish or a light meal. They're even good the next morning reheated and topped with a farm-fresh poached egg.

I’m so excited to be appearing for the first time in this week’s market newsletter. You’ll be hearing from me throughout this market season. There is a wonderfully passionate group of volunteers whose time and energy bring you a wonderful market experience each week. As a Certified Holistic Health Coach, I’m so happy to be contributing to this effort by providing you with what I hope you’ll find to be helpful articles and fun facts for making the most of your visits to the market. And I welcome your feedback. If you have market or healthy eating related topics you’d like to hear more about or questions you’d like answered, please feel free to let me know. See the end of the article for ways to contact me.
