Take a stroll through summer's bounty!
Farmer's markets are coming to life for the summer throughout the Northern Hemisphere. Teeming with the fresh bounties of spring rains, visiting a farmer's market to stock up on seasonal fruits and veggies is the perfect recipe for staying both active and healthy!
To inspire you, throughout June, we will bring you weekly highlights of some of the best markets around the globe and a recipe from the diverse food cultures they help fuel.
Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria (Barcelona, Spain)The energy of Barcelona's famed public market, la Boqueria, is infectious. Each morning, as far back as the 13th century, vendors open their stalls to present a dazzling display of fresh fruits, vegetables, meats and seafoods. Even if you don't have a kitchen nearby to prepare a traditional Gazpacho, a walk through the Boqueria is a feast for the senses!
Gazpacho (traditional cold tomato soup)
A culinary tradition even older than the Boqueria, Gazpacho (cold tomato soup) has been a staple of the food culture of the Iberian peninsula dating back to Roman times! A simple combination of minimal, humble, raw ingredients, Gazpacho is an ideal way to capitalize on a summer farmer's market haul.
