Hot-housed tomatoes

We're starting seeing a couple vendors with hot-housed tomatoes at the market. I usually like to wait until July or August when the field tomatoes start to come in, but it's nice to have the option to buy local tomatoes when the craving hits.

I arrived at the market too late to get some of Dirty Girl's fabulous strawberries, but picked up this beautiful radicchio for grilling.

Hidden Star Orchards boasts some of the most beautiful cherries in the market. Here, you can see dark Bing cherries and bright yellow Rainiers. Our cherry season typically runs from Mother's Day to Father's Day, though the cold, rainy weather here has skewed the season to shorter and later this year.

There's still some time to buy shelling peas. Get them while you can! Swanton Ferry Farm is one of my favorite vendors for peas.
