Looking for the perfect locally grown oyster mushroom or all the delicious meals that can be created with a chickpea? Those are just a couple of savory surprises we discovered at the Bedminster Farm Market. We’re having a great time at beautiful River Road Park in Bedminster, this summer. We’re running into old friends, making new ones, and cooking up some fabulous meals with everything fresh the Bedminster Farmer’s Market has to offer, from just-picked produce and pasture raised meats, to homemade-style soups, sauces, baked goods and even a bouquet of flowers for the table. Definitely one of the best farmer’s markets we’ve been to this
