Rolla Farmer's Market Finds - Peach Time!

Mid-July in Missouri is a time of bounty and farms, and Rolla's Farmer's Market, offer a wonderful variety of locally-grown foods. On a warm Saturday morning, it was easy to scoop up tomatoes and basil, one of my favorite food combinations.

I have basil at various stages growing at home but the smell of the freshly-cut basil was too hard to resist!

At the same table, a rare find, a little bouquet of fresh tarragon and fingerling purple potatoes, some red inside, others white. Growing up in Lima, Peru, where potato varieties are more prolific than North American apples, it was nice to have a potato choice.

And last, but not least, ready to eat peaches, picked that morning. I had planned to make a cobbler but one of the peaches didn't make it home. The rest have been rapidly disappearing from the bowl on the counter so may have to get more peaches next week.
