One of the best things to do in the city on the weekends is to hit up the farmers’ market. Hands down it is the best place to pick up fresh produce brought to the city from local farmers with their fresh harvests consisting of peaches and cream corn, heirloom tomatoes, fresh herbs, potatoes, onions, garlic, squash, peaches, watermelon, fresh baked breads and cookies. It is a place of inspiration with the historic background of the River Market itself, the cityscape, the live entertainment, and the stimulation of all five senses- no sixth sense at work here. We took off for the market on a mission- to showcase the goodies that can be gotten from the venders that travel from far and wide. The finds inspired a hearty meal that all meataterians can appreciate with a spin on the traditional meat and potato dish- bison strips with au gratin potatoes, grilled asparagus, and fresh tomato soup.
