Farmers Market Recipe Favorite!
As for my personal favorite items from the farmer’s market… Beldotti Bakery is at the farmer’s markets both in Stamford Downtown and at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center every week.
They have fresh mozzarella, bread, homemade garlic and basil pesto. Nothing is better for a summer appetizer than a slice of their fresh bread with some pesto drizzled on, a slice of mozzarella and I like to grab a tomato from the produce area to put a slice of that on top. It’s really easy to make and everyone loves it!
Plus, you can try a sample before purchasing!
