Our local gourmet farmer's market opened May 11 this year and it has been on my mind ever since. I found a window to make a quick trip there this Saturday but since it was still snowing here in early May our growing season is definitely a little more behind than usual. So there really wasn't a whole lot of fresh produce to pick from, but there were plenty of stands featuring sheep's milk cheeses, chevres, specialty jams, smoked trout and salmon, crusty breads, and organic coffees and chocolates. Here is a little slideshow of what I found. I think my favorite find from this trip was the ramps. I've heard they are great in omelets or caramelized, and I think I have enough to try both.
I will plan to head back in a couple weeks to see if I can find any spring type vegetables such as peas or radishes!
