Today I was able to visit another one of the many farmers markets in Stanislaus County. This one was the Friday morning Turlock Farmers Market. The Turlock Farmers Market is held downtown on Broadway at Main St. In addition to the delicious looking produce available there were spices, humus, jams and jellies, baked goods and some delicious English Toffee. How do I know it was delicious? Let's just say a bag of that toffee somehow ended up in my office.
The Turlock Farmers Market is held every Friday from May 4th through October 26th. Of course the selection of locally grown fruits and vegetables changes through out the season. I also picked up some beautiful strawberries this morning. I can't wait to have a few tonight after work.
Have you ever tried doing this to your strawberries? Dip a strawberry into sour cream, then into brown sugar. If you haven't tried it it might sound a little weird but believe me when I tell you that it is awesome! I think everyone that I have introduced this too turned their nose up at it at first but once they tried it they loved it. Go ahead, run on down to your local farmers market and pick up some fresh strawberries and try it.
If you are ever in Stanislaus County be sure and stop by one of the local farmers markets or fruit stands and pick up some of the tastiest fruits and vegetables you will ever eat. Be sure to check back here for more posts about Stanislaus County Farmers Markets and fruit stands. I will be checking out as many of them that I can over the next few weeks and telling you about them here. I know, it's a rough job, but someone has got to do it.
