Going to the farmer’s market in the summer is one of my favorite weekend activities. #basic, I know. But you won’t find me in a cute sundress carrying a straw tote filled with perfectly blooming peonies. Nope, I’ll be the one who is sweaty and struggling to decide on which vegetables I want/over committing to the amount I can carry home.

Yup, I’m that girl.

I am such a sucker for beets. Yes they can taste “like dirt earthy” according to Pat, but when roasted the earthiness turns to a sweet candy-like flavor. And I’m into it.

Do you know what I’m also into? Very very much into… good friends and GOOD food! There is nothing better than sitting down with friends or family and enjoying real, homemade food. And one amazing thing that has come from this blog is friends. Yes real life friends. Most of which I have never met in person, but friends without a doubt.

Because these real life friends live all across the country and aren’t able to get together, we are having a virtual farmer’s market party! Each one of the recipes shared for this party is made with fresh farmer’s market ingredients!

Let’s start things off with a drink, shall we?! Kelsey from Little Bits Of is sharing her raspberry lemon kombucha sangria.

And lucky us, we have two main courses at this party! Chrissa from Physical Kitchness is serving up grilled chicken breasts with jalapeno and peach salsa.

And Jess from Plays Well With Butter is bringing us aglio olio zoodles with summer vegetables and shrimp!

In addition to my roasted beet and goat cheese salad, Kelly is serving her tomato jicima salad and Kara is sharing her cherry caprese pasta salad.

Are you full yet?!
But most importantly, DESSERT. It’s not a party without dessert! <- That is a true scientific fact. Look it up.

And Allie killed the dessert recipe with this paleo peach basil tart. Ohhhhh my gosh. I hope you saved room.

Make sure you head over to Instagram and follow all of the recipes on the #foodiefarmersmarket series! And share with us what your favorite farmer’s market find is!

    So much color here, and I can totally resonate with saying that you would be the girl that would try to carry home as much as possible. If we had a big farmer’s market here, I Would love to do that. 😀 Also, this is such a gorgeous pretty salad Ellie; all the colors blended together are just beautiful.

      Thank you so so much Emily! And it’s so true… I purposely bring my own (small) bag to try and limit what I buy and that doesn’t even do the trick!

      I’m seriously so thankful that my husband doesn’t like beets because now I don’t have to share! And thank you so much 🙂
