So, all you of have had 2 weeks on me to scope out the best at the market this season. Just got back from North Carolina, where I fell in love with peaches all over again. OMG -so that's what Kramer was talking about!! But I digress.

I am now in serious need of my yearly corn fix and of course locally grown field tomatoes, heirlooms or not. I need those tomatoes of summer. I need that corn. I need my fix. I'm a corn and tomato junkie....

Anything else I should be aware of?

  1. Berries, all kinds of fabulous berries.

    1. We are near the end of chocolate covered blueberries at Hamel, get some soon.

      Royal figs at Chez Nino are like candy. Get them, a whole palette.

      There are green zebra tomatoes at the organic stand near Atkins' fish, and near Premiere Moisson they have other heirloom tomatoes. But I found last weeks selection of heirlooms occassionally underwhelming.

      Great eggplant everywhere, and nice poblanos.

      Bought a really great large Quebec cantalope, very sweet, very perfumed.

      Have fun!

        Green zebras..... my favourite.

        Oh yeah, had some pretty good cantaloupe on vacation also. Must buy more here.

        Can't wait for Sunday!!!

      2. earth cherries !! (cerises de terre).

        Unfortunatly, I won't be able to buy some this year and make jam with them.

        1. I regaled myself with arugula yesterday, and fresh figs (though I am not sure they are local?)
          I'm going every second day at this point. Love it. :)

            Local figs are pretty unlikely in Montreal. Earlier this summer they were from California and these days days they're from Greece.
