Summer Cookouts

Grilling season has begun! Few things herald the start of summer like a juicy steak or burger over an open flame. And we cannot wait to add a side of produce to complete that picture. With each passing week during the month of June, we will welcome more and more produce vendors selling delicious, colorful vegetables and fruit. What are you most excited for—Peppers? Zucchini? I have read that even Peaches can be grilled! I’m particularly excited for roasting eggplants and turning them into baba ganoush. The best part of summer grilling isn’t what we eat, but the people we choose to pass the time with while we’re cooking. We’re excited to see you and your friends at the Moscow Farmers Market, and we hope you find something delicious for your next summer cookout!
