I am so excited to welcome a new contributor to the Cupcakes & Kale Chips family. My friend Terri from Love and Confections will be bringing us some Farmers Market Finds. I love chatting with Terri online and to see pictures of her adorable little girl, but I was so thrilled to see her in person again at the Food and Wine Conference a couple of weeks ago. Since she lives in Florida, she is seeing amazing seasonal fruits and vegetables before many others in the country, so she will bring you some amazing recipes just in time for you to get local produce where you live. Farmer’s market fresh fruits combine with a crunchy almond and oat topping, to make an easy Summertime dessert – Gluten-Free Blackberry, Blueberry and Cherry Crisp.

I love local farmer’s markets. The hustle and bustle of vendors setting up their stalls reminds me of my time at the bakery. As the pastry chef, I would be working with the Master baker well before the sun came up, to make sure we had enough baked goods for the bakery and the farmer’s market around the corner. The little downtown came alive as the sun peeked out over the trees. Bikers stopped to get a coffee and pastry after exercising on the 22-mile trail. Parents with children headed toward the splash pad, and eagerly awaited for fun in the water to begin. Saturdays were our busiest day and it seemed like everyone visited the market.

Nowadays, even though I am still up early with a toddler, it is nowhere near as hectic as the farmer’s market days at the bakery. Instead of rushing to make sure we had enough pastries, croissants and bread, I can leisurely take my time to wander through the market. The sights and smells are incredible: fresh eggs, artisan cheeses, breads and pastries, and of course, the beautiful fruits and vegetables.

I love going to the farmer’s market any time of the year. Here in Florida, our growing season is earlier than most other parts of the country. Strawberries arrive in late February and blueberries in mid-May. I am able to enjoy wonderful produce while a lot of the country is still shoveling snow. Strawberry Freezer Jam and Blueberry Sangria are two of my favorite things to make with fresh fruit.

Mid-Summer is full of plump and delicious berries and cherries, and even though I like to eat them as-is, baking them into a crisp really brings out the flavor. The juicy fruits meld together and the crispy oat topping gives just the right amount of crunch. Indulge even more and top your crisp with some homemade Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. You can definitely share these individual treats, but I won’t tell if you decide to have one all to yourself.
