Chilled Golden Beet Ginger Soup

If you want to enjoy soup even when it’s hot outside, this one’s for you! Bonus: lots of ingredients are available at the Bloomington Community Farmers Market.

Quarter Pounder Beet Burger

Who says a veggie burger can’t be meaty? Get your beets from the Farmers Market for extra deliciousness. If you want to try a vegan mayo, check out Just Mayo , available at Bloomingfoods East and West.

This entree makes us feel like grown-ups! And you can get local maple syrup from the Farmers Market.

If this recipe doesn’t scream summer time, I don’t know what does!

Rosemary Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oh, yes. These cookies are amazing! Snatch up some rosemary from the farmers market or your herb garden!

Crisp can be eaten right of the oven but is still great chilled or at room temperature!
