Teche Area Farmer’s Market – Shaking out the good stuff


If you ask a Louisiana resident of a certain age what one of their favorite memories of summer on the Bayou would be, I’m willing to bet more than a few of us would say: a summer lunch with a fresh tomato sandwich. I know for me it was a tasty treat, a cool and refreshing break from being outside in the heat of the summer sun.

The problem with tomatoes is that sometimes when they come from the supermarket, they don’t taste as sweet as we remember. Especially when we compare them to the fresh fruit from the backyard vines that we remember from our youth. But if you don’t have a green thumb and don’t have time to grow your fresh vegetables, don’t worry. We shake out the good stuff, just in time for your next home-cooked meal.
