The original Santa Monica Farmers' Market, founded in 1981, is one of the oldest and largest markets in California. Saltsman, a cooking teacher and writer, provides information on choosing and storing seasonal produce and other ingredients, simple but sophisticated recipes based on them, and brief introductions to many of the farmers who come to the market every week. Most of the recipes include "Cook's Tips," "Chef's Tips," or "Farmer's Tips," and there are boxes on various ingredients, along with lists of crops and recipes by season. With the growing interest in-and reliance on-farmers' markets and community-supported agricultural programs, this is recommended for most collections.
