Farmer’s Market June – What’s in Season?

By HealthyMeNow.Net

Summer is almost here! Can you feel it? The sight of fresh cherries, blueberries and strawberries means that the season of sunshine is near.

Avocados, good gracious, how I love avocado. Avocado on a sandwich is almost impossible to beat, but it’s also a fantastic addition Mexican meals and fresh green recipes of any kind, really. The avocados you’ll find in stores now are probably from Mexico, where avocados are in season year-round, but California avocados are in season now, too

Beets  I’m slowly changing my tune about beets. I like them raw in salads and even in my juice. I’m still learning to appreciate roasted beets, though. Beets are tremendously earthy and can be eaten fresh, cooked or roasted. Some, like the golden variety, are pretty sweet.

Cherries, Sweet, red cherries will grace us with their presence this June. I like to snack on fresh cherries, but roasting cherries really brings out their inherent sweetness. Roasted or not, they are great with balsamic vinegar. Beyond America’s beloved cherry pie, cherries are a great addition to salads, cocktails and desserts.

Green beans are easily overlooked. They go great with almonds, basil, butter, Parmesan, olive oil, onions, parsley, potatoes, shallots, tomatoes and vinegar.

Strawberries are here! Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits to eat as is. I love them in salads, in sauces and desserts.

June in North Central Texas can also give us blueberries, cucumbers, greens, mango’s, fresh peas, red potatoes, and lots and lots of fresh herbs.

So get out to your local farmers market and enjoy some of the season’s best produce!
