Market Haul: August 12, 2015

Colors are on our mind at the market this week -- we're looking for deep indigo eggplant to grill, bi-color corn, sunset-hued peaches and every shade of green. Fresh prep is the name of the game but with the evenings cooling off after sunset, we're not opposed to slow-cooked beans and roasted stone fruit. 

With a budget of $20, here's what we purchased for this week's Market Haul, and some recipe ideas to get you merging your produce with your pantry. 

  • Rio Osso antique peaches, Penryn Orchard Specialties, Placer County
  • White and red onions, Schaner Family Farms, Valley Center
  • Bi-color Corn, Rutiz Family Farm
  • Celery, Rutiz Family Farm, Arroyo Grande
  • Romano beans, Rutiz Family Farm, Arroyo Grande
