At the Market
Our local growing season is hitting its stride. Yesterday many farmers and other vendors braved the horrid heat and humidity to offer their goodies at the Northside Farmers Market, which runs 4-7 Pm every Wednesday until at least September. The baby squash, most with their blossoms still attached, were tender and quite lovely simply sauteed in a little olive oil with onion and garlic. One or two vendors had several varieties of tomatoes, and local peaches also made an appearance. I didn't see corn yet, but perhaps some will show up on Saturday at Findlay Market.
My day job is college professor -- of mass communication and journalism, at the University of Cincinnati. I've probably got a few more years to go, and it's a good gig. Love to travel, cook, dine out, and work out.
