Find your local farmers market

A highlight of my weekend in the Hamptons was definitely the wonderful home cooked dinner we made from the local produce. After our beach workout we built up an appetite and made our way to the local farmers market!

I was in love. All the colorful produce was so beautiful. We stalked up on cherries, apples, strawberries, blueberries, and peaches. We also got asparagus, tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese,cucumbers, basil and delicious corn!

After the farmers market we stopped at a local fish shop and got some shrimp, for shrimp cocktail. We were all offered a sample of ceviche. I had never tasted it before, but my friends who had said it was the best they ever tried. Ceviche is made from fresh raw fish and is cooked by the citrus juices it sits in. The dish was tasty, chilled and refreshing.
