Cook up a farm-fresh Mother’s Day treat with our Mother’s Day Farmers’ Market Brunch recipes.
Not only is it Mother’s Day, but his first weekend in May is also the time when most farmers’ markets open for the season, so why not treat mom to a fabulous feast, fresh from the farm!
At my local Market (which opens early, in April), I found a treasure trove of ingredients for our Mother’s Day brunch menu featuring early spring ingredients, fresh herbs, cheeses and even a decadent dessert that takes advantage of local duck eggs! Not only was brunch covered, but I scooped up a several Mom-worthy gifts, including beautiful note cards (complete with recipes) beautifully illustrated by Karen Sandorf, a local artist. I then picked up a gorgeous hanging basket from Pisarcik Greenhouse. In addition, there were teas, soaps, lotions and even jewelry…all locally made.
For local markets open near you, go to Local Harvest where you can search farmers markets, farms and other sources of fresh, local ingredients.
Happy Mother’s Day, Mom! I love you!
