Minneapolis Farmers Market
It was a busy weekend at the market with an abundance of colorful produce at every turn. Crates of melons, bushels of tomatoes and peppers, and plenty of green made up the color palate as I walked the aisles of the Minneapolis Farmers Market. After making the roasted sun gold tomato sauce last week, I had to make another batch for my upcoming book club/birthday celebration and was on the hunt for sun gold tomatoes. Luckily I found them at Rolf’s Produce and dashed home to make more sauce for one of my favorite zucchini recipes from 101 Cookbooks.
