Tis the season to eat rainbows
Despite no rain for many weeks, rainbows can be spotted all throughout the North Park Farmers market! Stop by JR Organics, The Produce Stand, Valdivia or Kawano Farms and your eyes will be treated to multi-colored melons and tomatoes. Suzie's farm has peppers of every color; R&L Farms has vibrant yellow & orange stone fruit; John Gilruth's avocados are emeralds in the rough; Smit Orchards' deep purple blueberries shimmer in the sunlight and Hillside has exotically colored passionfruit.
Those colors mesmerize the eyes, but we suggest that you do more than gaze at the colors! Take a bunch of big bites because those colors, scientists and clinical nutritionists agree,contain essential health components that can help you stay healthy. We found these recipes that serve up a big slice of the rainbow and are delicious: A Tomato, Watermelon and Nicolau Farms Feta Salad or a watermelon, peach, tomato and avocado salad . After trying them you'll be clicking your heels and repeating that familiar phrase "there's no place like the North Park Farmers market!"
