I go to the farmer's market near work (yeah, South Station) twice a week when I can. Usually I head straight to Kimball's to pick up some better tasting produce. Fresh fruit, teeny tiny fingerling potatoes, fresh corn, and weird mutated tomatoes and squash.
This past week I picked up basil and and the aforementioned mutant tomatoes to make a simple basil, mozzarella and tomato plate for dinner.
I just loved the hooked tomato when I saw it in the bin that I knew it had to be mine! Dinner was a matter of 10 minutes of cutting, placing on the plate and lightly salting and peppering. Definitely a good dinner for a hot summer night.
Saturday is Braintree's farmer's market, which also has some beautiful produce, including the currants I used at the beginning of the summer and some of the pattypan squash I like so much. Better yet, the Braintree market has Ever So Humble Pie company. We've been enjoying their tasty, tasty pies all summer long!
