    A great idea. I don’t always have time to go to the farmers market but when I do I often feel overwhelmed by the amount of produce that is on offer and I am not sure which vegetables can be combined with what – what to make, etc. It would be helpful to take away some recipe cards so you have a recipe and a shopping list of what you can buy on the day at the market.
