Whether you have a garden, go berry picking, or hit up the farmer's market - there are lots of seasonal options available these days. My monthly cooking group was even inspired to have a local/garden theme for our July supper (a meal I am looking forward to once again!).
Since it's Q's Day, today I'm wondering:
What is your favourite garden food or recipe?
If you are hitting up the Saskatoon farmer's market (or your local market) HealthCastle has some tips to share:
- bring your own reuseable bags
- bring cash
- avoid the crowds (and get the best selection) by going earlier in the morning
The Saskatoon farmer's market summer hours (unitl October 13, 2012) are:
Saturdays 8 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Wednesdays - 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Sundays - 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
According to localeating.ca, Saskatchewan foods in season in July include:
- Summer Squash
