The Epicurious farmers' market tour

This summer, we're getting fresh: Epicurious is hitting the road to visit farmers' markets across the United States. We invite you to come meet Editor-in-Chief Tanya Steel and other Epicurious editors at markets in San Francisco, Portland, Oregon, Chicago, Philadelphia, and New York . While at the market, you can sign up to become an Epicurious member, get Epicurious recipes and shopping lists printed on TasteBook recipe cards, and go home with an eco-friendly Epicurious tote bag, perfect for the market-all for free!


For each city, we've chosen a menu based on ingredients that will be in season while we're visiting, such as figs and summer squash in San Francisco, peppers and blueberries in Portland, tomatillos and nectarines in Chicago, and early apples and chard in New York. Of course, even if you can't make it to one of these markets, you can still use these menus: Most of the recipes feature ingredients that will be available sometime this summer from a farm near you, no matter where you live.
