Review

“A celebration of [fruit] and vegetable treasures… packed with clear, concise recipes, written in a no–nonsense style.” -- Farmers' Weekly

From the Publisher

Farmers’ markets are springing up everywhere. The basic idea—of local farmers selling their own produce—has been enthusiastically embraced by shoppers who value fresh, local produce at a reasonable price. For those of us numbed by supermarket shopping, The Farmers’ Market Cookbook is a guide to the fruits and vegetables that are available each season. As informative as it is beautiful, the book is packed with simple, delicious recipes: Rainbow Trout with Asian Greens, Roasted Sweet Peppers, Sea Bass Baked in Fennel and Pernod, Butternut Squash Risotto, Broccoli with Chick Peas and Sage, and Blackberry Pie. A former journalist for TIME magazine, Nina Planck founded London’s Farmers’ Markets in 1999 and now runs a dozen of the city’s markets.

More About the Author

Nina Planck is a farmers' daughter, food writer, farmers' market entrepreneur, local foodist, and advocate for traditional foods. She will liberate you to eat red meat, butter, raw milk, and lard. After reading Nina's books, you will eat the foods of your ancestors with pleasure and with impunity. Men and women planning to be parents will find her prenatal advice bracing and life-changing. Nina is the author of The Farmers' Market Cookbook; Real Food: What to Eat and Why; and Real Food for Mother and Baby. Her books are published in English and five other languages. The Real Food Cookbook is next.

Born at home in in Buffalo, New York in 1971, Nina was raised on an ecological family farm in Wheatland, Virginia. She grew up milking the cow, feeding the chickens, growing vegetables, and eating simple, real food. At age 9, she sold produce at roadside stands until the first proper farmers' market opened nearby in 1980, neatly turning a money-losing farm into a profitable one. In 1999, Nina opened the first modern farmers' markets in London, England and today her company runs two dozen popular year-round markets. Chef Loyd Grossman called her market in Marylebone one of the world's best. In New York City, Nina was Director of the famous Greenmarkets. In Washington, D.C., she founded (and later sold) the Mount Pleasant Farmers' Market.

Nina lives in New York City and Stockton, New Jersey with her husband Rob Kaufelt, the proprietor of Murray's Cheese, and their three children.

My daughter has another book by Nina Planck and requested this one for Christmas. She absolutely loves it and I really enjoyed looking at the recipes and information before I wrapped it up.

The Kindle version I purchased has no table of contents or index. A cookbook especially is very unusable without those. I am returning it. The book is nice though. Will buy again when amazon fixes the Kindle book.
