New to the 2012 NorthWest Crossing Saturday Farmers Market is the “Taste of the Season Weekly Recipe,” presented by The Garner Group.

Each week we promoted a recipe that features local ingredients from one or more of our Saturday Farmers Market vendors. Our goal was to share with our customers a new recipe that perhaps introduces a new food or technique, help support our local vendors, and have fun sharing ways to celebrate the fresh bounty available at our weekly market.  Bon Appétit!
