This week I’m highlighting some of our wonderful local produce with Grilled Okra and Tomatoes!
If you aren’t new to Biscuits & Burlap, you probably know that we are both huge fans of neighborhood farmers markets. Mom volunteers at the Norcross Community Market each year and we both try to buy anything we can from the local markets before we go to a big chain grocery store. There are so many vendors to choose from, selling everything from produce to meat to jam (for a full list of the vendors this year, be sure to check out the Norcross Community Market’s Facebook page). One of our favorite local farms represented at the Norcross Market is Gilliam’s Community Garden.
