60) Baltimore Farmers Market Tour (The Complete LIst)

We have been in long running dinner rut. I just can't seem to get out of it. We always eat the same things. Mostly because dinner is a hectic time of day, everyone is starting to get tired, so I make things that are easy, that I know how to make and know everyone will eat. However, this summer I am making an attempt to get out of the rut! After spending most of the Fall and Spring checking out lots and lots of local playgrounds I thought it would be fun to spend the Summer  and Fall checking out lots of local farmers markets. Over the last few years farmers markets have been cropping up all over the place in Baltimore. Some are small, some are big and I am hoping  to check out as many of them as we can. My plan is to visit the farmers market and write about our trip, just like we did with the playgrounds, but then to also try out some recipes from the ingredients we get from the farmers market. Hopefully buying some fresh, local ingredients will be just the dinner inspiration we need. As we try out some recipes, I will keep you posted about their success with both the big and little taste testers in our house. In the meantime if anyone has any favorite farmers markets or fun recipes, let me know!
