Farmer’s Market in Brooklyn

Come August, the only thing I want to snack on are heirloom tomatoes. I’m so lucky that there are two farmer’s markets within walking distance from my apartment with table after table of fresh garden picks. This weekend, I went to both—making a single serving salad for myself on Saturday (with olive oil, balsamic, and a sprinkle of sea salt) and a large salad on Sunday (with burrata cheese and basil). It’s so fun to see the different varieties that each place has. Saturday’s market had a lot more Cherokee Purples and Green Zebras, while Sunday’s market had more red and yellow varieties (like the Speck Roman tomatoes, pictured above).

Do you have any go-to recipes for heirloom tomatoes? Would love to hear!

PS: More heirloom tomatoes here and here.
