Produce to Look Forward to in August and Why!

Farmers Market, Frisco Fresh Market, Fruits and Vegetables, Produce

While most Americans eat meals trucked more than 1,500 miles, those living in North Texas are blessed to have Frisco Fresh Market nearby. Summer is the perfect time to find fresh produce at the outdoor market. You will not want to be late to this weekend’s market because supplies may be extremely limited.

Melons

Regardless of the type of melon you are craving, it is likely available at our market this August. Watermelon, honeydew melons and cantaloupes may all be available.

Use a melon baller to scoop out the different melons and treat your taste buds to a fresh melon salad. Juicing melons and freezing the juice in a popsicle mold is the perfect natural summertime treat.

Since many melons contain a high-water content, consuming them is an ideal way to stay hydrated during the hot tail-end of the summer.

Vegetables

The market is a great place to shop for fresh-picked vegetables. Sweet corn, peas, carrots, onion, green beans, potatoes, onions, and cucumbers may all be available.

Peel back the husks on the corn a little and add some garlic butter before pulling the husks back in place and roasting them in a campfire on a summer camping trip. Your family will be delighted when they find a carrot Jello salad on the dinner table on a hot summer day.

Ground Vegetables

You may also find many ground vegetables at the market. August is the perfect season to shop for summer squash, eggplants and zucchini. Consider slicing up zucchini like they were noodles and using them in your favorite lasagna recipe for a low-carb entrée that is sure to please. Zucchini is also the perfect healthy option to eat raw, especially when you dip it in a little flavored cream cheese.

Peppers

While they are a vegetable, peppers get a special shout out in the late summer. You may be able to find sweet, jalapeno, poblano chile, and many other types of peppers. Imagine how good jalapeno poppers will taste when prepared on the grill.
Make salsa by combining tomatoes, sweet onion, garlic, jalapeno peppers, cilantro and a little lime juice. Trust us; your family will love this summer spice.

Salad Ingredients

Summer is a wonderful time for a salad when it is simply too hot to cook. You may find cucumbers, tomatoes, turnips, and carrots at the market in addition to salad greens. Turn an ordinary salad into a culinary delight using fresh herbs from the market.

Fruit

When your children are demanding a snack, give them a healthy one by handing them a piece of fruit from the market. Persimmons, figs, and pears may all be available. If you feel more energetic, make fig and persimmon jams to enjoy all winter.
