11 Foods at Their Peak in July

Juicy, delicious, and ripe–right about now

Perfect for al fresco dinners in the fading summer sun, we have rounded up the best produce to pick up at your local farmers’ market this July. Find some fresh corn? You won’t want to miss the Okra and Corn Maque Choux. With peaches, blueberries, and blackberries galore, you’re baking will really take off. We’re thinking pies or homemade ice cream for the summer. You will definitely see black-eyed peas at the farmers’ market, so scoop some up for Peas and Kale Salad with Bacon Vinaigrette. It would be a shame to miss these berries and veggies, all of which are at their freshest and most mouth-watering in July.
