If you are looking to make a snack, appetizer, side dish or even a light meal to be served with a chilled bottle of wine and friends look no further. Why not whip up some tasty good old Italian bruschetta packed with tons of fresh flavors and ingredients.
When making this dish you may find it easier and quicker to shop for your ingredients in the local supermarket. This however is not where you will get the best flavors or value for money. For these you need to be going to a farmers market.
For a bruschetta you will need FRESH tomatoes, scallions, basil, garlic, red peppers, baguettes and pecorino romano. A farmers market is all about the FRESH. Buying from a supermarket is ok but the vegetables, cheese and bread are never quite fresh enough to give you the outstanding taste that you will need for this dish.
As well as freshness there are other benefits to buying from a farmers market. You can shop around all in one place finding the best quality and value products easily. You can pick each individual tomato, pepper and scallion ensuring every one that ends up in your vegetable basket is of the highest quality.
Cost wise farmers market can be cheaper than your average supermarket especially if you shop around the stalls. However if they are not cheaper you need to ask yourself one thing, do I really mind paying that little extra for a far higher quality product? The answer has to be a resounding no. Quality of an ingredient that is going into a dish that is all about the natural flavors cannot be compromised. And to top everything off you will be supporting your local farmer and serving yourself or your guests the best quality, tasty ingredients that you possibly can.
