Southern Refrigerator Pickles

To me, a Saturday isn't quite a Saturday without a trip to the local Farmer's Market. The smell of the fresh fruit, veggies and kettle corn is so enticing! In your summer entertaining, whether it is simple or gourmet, the farmer's market is a great place to stock up on fresh produce, blooming flowers, and freshly-made breads you will want to incorporate into your weekly menu!

If you haven't tried fresh garlic, you will have to promise me you will at least try it. It is the best!

If you shop the farmer's market, do you have a special find? If not, what do you do on Saturdays? Laundry doesn't count! :)

Happy Friday!
