As each season changes into the next, so do the colors and flavors of the farmers’ market. If you are lucky enough to live in a place that provides a year-round market, you might have witnessed the root vegetables of winter give way to the vibrant spring greens, which hold promise for the bright rainbow that is the summer market. Inevitably, however, the vivid colors of summer will fade into the autumn’s offerings of warm golds and oranges.
