At the Yaletown Farmers Market this week – August 13

Grapes and Melons. Oh my!

One of my favourite parts about summer is when I get to taste grapes and melons for the first time since last summer’s harvest! An exciting part of eating seasonally. Be sure to pick up yours at the Yaletown Farmers market this week to do the same. Grapes and melons make for great snacks on their own, they go well in salads, and make some of the best desserts!
