Editorial Reviews

Charleston Magazine
As fresh as a basket of just-picked produce-and every bit as appealing-Holly Herrick's Southern Farmers Market Cookbook sprouts in bookstores this month. Chock full of colorful recipes, it's the perfect helpmate for at-home cooks looking to make the most of the Lowcountry's bountiful harvest.
The Post and Courier
Between farmers and the public, "The link is there, the bond is forged," she says.

"I think it's always been in the South, but, like everywhere, I think for a while we got away from it because so much of our food was packaged, which became a convenient way to shop. Because farmers markets are becoming more prevalent and because people are becoming more aware of why it's important to shop local and seasonal, they're kind of feeding upon each other. I think it's really exciting."

People & Places Southern Living
"Holly Herrick dedicates her new cookbook to those who 'nurture, cultivate , and bring forth the priceless gems of the seasons. She aptly pays special tribute to small farmers of the South, 'who achieve all of this with the added burden of a scorching summer sun.'...."Local, fresh and organic are trendy buzzwords, but they're really nothing new, Holly points out. "Our ancestors ate whatever they could catch that day or pick from the field."

Leah Loves Local
What make this book a fantastic choice for newbie locavores is the way Holly opens up the world of seasonal eating and farmers markets. She acts as a guide, explaining the importance and benefits of eating local food, giving you tips on what to bring/what not to bring to a farmers market, and providing suggestions on how to stock a pantry that is ready for seasonal cooking.

Read an Excerpt

More and more, farmers markets provide a nearly one-stop shopping experience. Happily, far removed from generic “super stores,” many non-produce specific staples—local eggs, honey, fresh herbs, cheeses, beef, pork, chicken, seafood, pasta, grits, rice, bread, canned goods, jellies, and more—are readily available at many farmers markets across the South and the country.
