Sharing more than 20 Farmer’s Market Recipes for May. Markets are opening up all over the country so take advantage of the fresh produce and try some of these seasonal recipes.
If your city is anything like mine, then your farmer’s markets are opening up, too. I am super excited for locally grown fresh produce. It tastes so fresh and so full of flavor. More so than the trucked in produce at the local grocery store. And mine not only has produce but meats and prepared foods, too. I will be making a stop at the kimchi guy this year. He makes a delicious Latin sauerkraut. It’s perfect on chorizo or just regular hot dogs. Then there’s his kimchi.
Creamed Spinach Rice combines the vintage spinach recipe with delicious rice for a hearty side. It’s great with ham and lamb for Easter, but also grilled chicken or even steaks.
What’s in season in May?
I think the shorter question might be what’s not in season I may. There’s leftover citrus because in cold storage it lasts a long time. The same is true with apples. But now you have berries starting to pop up. Florida strawberries are just ending their season which means the start of your local strawberry season. There’s also blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries. Nectarines, peaches, plums are a welcome change from the winter citrus fruits.
