So simply, yet pure…
The best part of going to the farmer’s market is getting fresh local produce from the near by villages/farmers. Most vegetables are seasonal and there are other methods as indoor organic green houses & hydroponics. Get to know your vendors and their personal methods they use. We have one who grows one of the most amazing organic hydroponic tomatoes!
Well, when I see fresh tomatoes I think… Greek Village Salad! I could never get bored of this salad, as a matter of fact, starting this time of year and until fall, I usually eat this salad at least 4 times a week for lunch.
