Support Your Local Farmers
So…you’re at your local Farmer’s Market and you pick up all of these beautiful vegetables, maybe some fresh cheese and meats, but you’re not sure exactly what to do with them all.
Make a Farmer’s Market Frittata, of course. Frittatas are the perfect way to showcase whatever ingredients you have on hand and the best thing is they only take about 15 minutes to pull together.
Tender baby potatoes are sliced thinly and sauteed with garlic and olive oil until just tender, then combined with diced country smoked ham, fresh kale, halved cherry tomatoes and sharp cheddar cheese. This gets folded together with whisked farm fresh eggs and a splash of cream, then baked for just 10 minutes in a 12 inch cast iron skillet. Top with fresh torn basil.

Find a Local Farmer’s Market
Most larger cities have a local Farmer’s Market that’s advertised in a variety of places like social media, banners and local flyers, but you can also search the internet and find local Farmer’s Markets in your state such as wafarmersmarket.org for my home state of Washington.
They often rotate days that they are open. For instance, Everett, WA has their Farmer’s Market on Sundays and Lake Stevens, WA is on a Wednesday. This makes it easier to find one based on your schedule.
