A Multitude of Berries

Berry season is here!  Berry season is here!  Notwithstanding the protests of the berry-hater, the Family Foodie indulged in many, many varieties of berries today at the farmer’s market.  Thank you, Westmoreland.  The colossal blackberries are here, sweet as candy.  Strawberries, cherries, blueberries, and raspberries completed our berry stash.  As well as berries, we bought a few early peaches, and some adorable apricots. 

It was actually a treat to go to the market without having to think much about the green part of our diet. Our CSA has made sure that we don’t need to worry about that….and can I say that the lettuce from Potomac Vegetable Farms has been delicious!!! Pickled beets, brocooli raab and orzo salad, multiple mixtures of greens, and fresh mint in our iced tea will make for a wonderful local food weekend.
