About the Fresh From the Farmer’s Market Blog Carnival:

Farmer’s Markets are a fantastic source for fresh, seasonal, locally produced foods, and what’s better is they’re cropping up in more places than ever. Chances are there’s a market within 20 miles of your house.

Submit your recipes (original or from a cookbook/website/etc), writings, photography, etc. that feature a particularly delicious, unusual, or beautiful food that you found at the farmer’s market — the perfect heirloom tomato, a white wonder melon, wild sorrel, cardoon, a gooey Hachiya Persimmon, grass-fed beef, farm-fresh eggs, locally caught trout, raw milk, pomegranate jelly, apricot chipotle marinade — you get the idea!

At (or near the top) of the post you should list the location of the farmer’s market and the featured food(s) (and the farm/purveyor if you know). Submissions should be recent (i.e. within the last month, or at least from the current season–spring, fall, etc) so that the emphasis remains on fresh seasonal foods.

After I receive everyone’s submissions, I will post a ‘digest’ of the posts, including a permalink to your site. This is a great way to gain some exposure for your blog, as well as find other bloggers passionate about similar topics.

Carnival 1: Submission Deadline is 11:59PM on Thursday Feb 28th
You can submit entries here.

The Fresh From the Farmer’s Blog Carnival will take place monthly; submissions should be made on or before the last thursday of the month. The Carnival will be typically be published the following Tuesday.
