More producers than ever are marketing their products directly to consumers at farmers markets across the nation. Since 1996 the number of farmers markets in this country has increased by more than 300 percent.
With consumers’ growing demand for locally grown foods comes a need for fresh ideas in preparation and serving. A new cookbook from Quail Ridge Press, in Brandon, can help.
The “Recipe Hall of Fame Fresh from the Farmers Market Cookbook” presents some 400 recipes chosen from QRP’s highly successful “Best of the Best State Cookbook Series.” The focus is on fruit and vegetables used in recipes for every course, from appetizer to main dish to dessert. The “Extra Help” section offers buying and storage tips and a chart of seasonal availability.
Both seasoned and beginner cooks should find “Fresh from the Farmers Market” a valuable resource for preparing healthful meals centered on local farm products.
The cookbook is available from bookstores and other retailers, online at www.quailridge.com or by calling 800-343-1583. Price for the comb-bound version is $16.95.
