What's in Season?

The Farmers' Markets are in season now. I'm lucky, between the Green City Market and the City of Chicago Farmers Markets, I can go to a market for fresh vegetables, fruit, meat, cheese, and baked goods every day except Monday and Friday. It's still early so the fruit is still a little ways off. But after months of root vegetables, we're being rewarded with asparagus, morel mushrooms, and leeks galore (a perfect springtime feast). We get both green and purple asparagus (purple is a little sweeter) and I love it steamed, grilled, and just raw.

Looks very appetizing. I've never had purple asparagus. I'll have to watch for that.
