I get a super high when I go to the farmer’s market, especially on a perfect warm day like today. For weeks I’ve been nudging the local farmers I know (and don’t know), asking when they would have spring asparagus. One rainy cold day after another, I was told, “Maybe a couple more weeks.” Then – FINALLY! With the opening of various farmer’s markets here came the most welcome signs of spring – ramps (aka wild leeks), herb plants, spinach, and the highly coveted spring asparagus. Coincidentally, we had what was probably one of the most gorgeous days of 2011 thus far. Moon roof open, windows down, radio cranking, and asparagus in the back…what a great start to the weekend.

Our first spring meal, vegetables courtesy of farmers from the Doylestown Farmer’s Market

Thanks everyone!
