Local Farmers Market

How much fun are local farmers markets??  If you’ve never had the opportunity to visit your local market, then it’s a MUST DO as soon as you get the chance.

The little local farmers are so cute and friendly.  I hands down prefer getting my fruits and veggies from the farmers market, rather than the grocery store.   Not only are you supporting your neighbors (the farmers), but every thing is cheaper and yummier! Yesterday I got a batch of peaches that were picked off the tree’s that morning! Talk about fresh.

Here’s a list of local farmers markets around Columbus! I’ve gone to the Hilliard and Clintonville markets! Clintonville’s is a bit larger… not to mention the warm, homemade donuts they sell for a dollar.  Seriously, they melt in your mouth.  I promise.  It’s worth going to just for the donuts.

Here’s a quick recipe I just wanted to share:  Zucchini with Parmesan

I think I love zucchini.  I never used to buy it because I never knew what do with it, but this turned out delicious and it’s so simple.  Why didn’t I try this sooner?  This makes for a perfect vegetable side dish, or even as a snack! Enjoy! And let me know what you think!

Ingredients:

  • 1 zucchini (slice in to pieces 1/4 inch thick)
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp of olive oil
  • Parmesan cheese, shredded
Instructions:
1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
2. Add zucchini and cook, stirring every 2 to 3 minutes, until tender and most of the slices are golden brown.
3. Reduce heat to medium-low, sprinkle with salt and pepper; stir to combine. Sprinkle with cheese, cover, and cook until the cheese is melted, 1 to 2 minutes more. Serve warm.

  1. This looks so good! What are the chances both of us post recipes that use zucchini for the first time on the same day? Haha. By the way, I can’t wait to check out a farmer’s market! 🙂
