Goat Cheese

Goat cheese is one of our best-loved farmers market scores. In Wisconsin (yay Dairy State!), there’s often several booths and several varieties of goat cheese to be found. Try this Mac and Cheese recipe from My Baking Addiction that uses roasted chicken, goat cheese, and rosemary to make a delicious dish you won’t soon forget!

There’s nothing better than a fresh, vine-ripe tomato (you know, the kind that’s hard to find in the stores). Try looking for all different kinds of varieties! We like this Bruschetta recipe from Damn Delicious that has cherry tomatoes, avocado, and a balsamic reduction. It’s a perfect summer appetizer or snack!

Fresh berries are one of life’s greatest pleasures! Get your berries from the farmers market, where they will usually keep longer than ones you buy in the store. Then, try these Mini Fruit Tart Cheesecakes from Crazy for Crust. They’re delightful and delectable!

Asparagus is one of those no-fuss vegetables – you don’t need to do much to it to make a great side dish. However, we really like these Baked Asparagus Fries from Damn Delicious. They’re easy to make, and they go great with any number of grilled meats!

Peaches are always a lovely treat, but summertime is the perfect season to throw them on the grill! Try this recipe for Grilled Peaches from The Framed Table. They go perfectly will grilled pork chops!

Corn on the cob! We love this summertime staple, and the farmers market is a perfect place to get huge ears of corn that can be boiled or put on the grill. Go traditional with butter and salt, or check out this recipe for Mexican Street Corn from Seeded at the Table. It doesn’t get much better than this!

Bell Peppers

When it comes to cooking, bell peppers have endless possibilities! You can stuff them, grill them, sautée them, or chop them up and put them in a casserole. And – bonus! – they’re really good for you. We like this recipe Stuffed Pepper Soup from Spinach for Breakfast.
