I'm a huge fan of Williams-Sonoma cookbooks, but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be this one and Eat Well.

Loved this book and all the great recipes I can use when I purchase fresh produce from the Farmers Market.

We receive a share of produce each week from our local CSA farm. This book is laid out perfectly, I just look up what we have in our box that week (for example fava beans or green beans) and there are 3-4 amazing recipes. So far every recipe I have tried has been easy to make, healthy, and delicious. Now I never have to worry about what I am going to do with the produce I receive. Covers vegetables and fruit and I dare you not to get hungry looking at the gorgeous photos!

So far every recipe I've tried from this book has turned out well. It's nice to go to a farmers market now and buy things I've never even tried before (watermelon radishes?), because I know when I get home there will be at least one, if not three, recipes I can use. Most of the recipes are elegantly simple, like the butter lettuce salad with mustard vinaigrette, fresh chives, tarragon, and parsley. So delicious. About the only modification I make to many of these recipes is to dial down the garlic. This is not an entirely vegetarian cookbook. Most recipes are vegetarian, but not all, so there are also a few fish and chicken and beef recipes, and they all look good as well. The book stays open when you lay it down on the kitchen counter, which is nice. Beautiful illustrations and beautiful layout.

We joined a local CSA with a variety of local grown, organic vegetables coming to our house each week. Instead of cooking the same thing each week, we were looking for new ways to cook vegetables and fruits. This book is educational in so many ways. First, it talks about buying vegetables and fruits in season and lists the "in season" time. Secondly, each section talks about what to look for and how to preserve fruits and vegetables, and thirdly, it provides a variety of recipes to utilize all of your fruits and veggies. We are looking forward to trying all of these recipes this season. It was recommended to me by a friend and am happy to recommend it to you! (Also, again, Amazon delivered this product before the scheduled date. A nice surprise to come home to.)

Beautiful and user-friendly, this is a great resource! Divided by vegetable, each section starts with what to look for when buying the item, brief basic information on what it is and how to use it, and tips on working with it. Three recipes highlighting the ingredient follow, along with a beautiful full-page photo of one of them. Grouped by category (beans & peas, cabbages & crucifers, etc), recipes are easy to find and brief. No extensive preparations or complicated processes here!

I appreciated the variety of vegetables covered and the general appeal of the recipes; there were few I'd have to worry about guests or family not being comfortable with. Definitely a keeper destined to be much appreciated this summer!

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By C. Hill HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on June 12, 2012
Format: Paperback
"Cooking from the Farmer's Market" is a very good collection of recipes that focus on using fresh ingredients from local Farmer's Markets, but it is also a good guide for selecting the best in season fare as well. I grew up in an area that had a very good Farmer's Market where we purchased a good amount of the food we didn't grow or raise ourselves and this book would have been very helpful to my parents.

The first chapters are on the author's reasoning for shopping locally, buying organic and seasonal foods, and what to expect at the Farmer's Market. This is good reading before heading out to your first trip to a local market, but it is also worthwhile even if you are experienced. These sections might also be a good reading choice for vegetarians, but a lot of the recipes do include meat and dairy products.

The actual recipe section is focused mainly on Vegetables and Fruits, and includes helpful buying and preparation tips. The recipes tend to be on the simple side, with three or four to a page, and are presented in an almost minimalistic fashion. The pictures are generally good quality but are not really geared to help in the recipe preparation, which is my only real issue with this cookbook.

This is a very worthwhile cookbook for those with access to Farmer's Markets and grower's cooperatives.

Highly Recommended!

I just received my copy of this book and am very impressed with how it is laid out. While not all recipes have pictures, many others do, but what is most impressive is the descriptions given before each individual chapter on the particular vegetable/fruit and the simplicity of preparation. I've got a trip planned to the market coming up and cannot wait to get my hands on some sugar snap peas and strawberries, just to give a go at some of the recipes in these respective sections.

Gave as gift so only looked through briefly. Love that it includes many vegetables that I would not normally think of.

When I received this book I very nearly sent it back because I didn't think it would be one that I'd pick up to use over and over. But, I thought I'd give it a shot by cooking the Sweet Potato Beef Stir fry. I'm so glad I did, because it was really really good. Then, I tried the Beef and Broccoli Stir fry - better than any I've ever ordered at a restaurant! So, I decided to keep the book. I can't wait for our Farmer's Market to start back up in the spring!

I also really like how this book clearly charts what vegetables can be found in which season. Then, sorts recipes by the vegetable. I like when cookbooks have a picture with each recipe, and this book does not. There are 3 recipes per page with a picture of one recipe. But, that is a good indicator that most of these recipes are simple and fairly easy to prepare.
