Farmer's Market Meals and A Little Bird Told Me Link Party #181

One of our family's favorite activities is to visit our local Farmers' Markets. With summer in full swing, the local markets are bursting with fresh produce, herbs, eggs, and other items straight off the farm. Even our own garden has herbs, onions, tomatoes, and other goodies growing with eggs on the way from our young chickens. There's is something richly satisfying in preparing a meal with farm fresh ingredients. When you shop Farmers' Markets, you're not only getting the freshest ingredients, but you're also supporting local businesses and farms. Hmm...what can you prepare with all of that fresh produce? Here are six delicious ideas! Oh, and don't forget to check out my own recipes for Garden Fresh Pasta Sauce, Apple Pie Popsicles, and Homemade Almond Milk. Alright, off to the market!

1. Healthy Mason Jar Salads / One Little Project
This Shrimp and Feta Cobb Salad from Savoring the Thyme is just one of the many mason jar salads that Debbie has pulled together in this round-up.

2. Creamy Pesto Pasta Salad / Morgan Manages Mommyhood
I love pesto and this Pesto Pasta looks amazing! Serve as a meal on its own or as an accompaniment to dinner.

3. Lettuce Wraps / Seven Graces
Inspired by P. F. Chang's wraps, Kristy has come up with her own delicious version!

4. Vegan Chickpea Flour Omelette / Strength & Sunshine
What a delicious, healthy way to start your day! This omelette is filled with leafy green and fresh veggies.

5. Green Beans in Potato Salad / Olives & Okra
Grilling out? This would make a delicious side. Veggies and flavor abound in this warm side dish!

6. Grilled Green Goddess Wraps / Strength & Sunshine
Love greens? This delicious wrap is bursting with them!

Now it's time for...
