What's not to love about the greenmarkets right now? Almost all of the best summer produce is finally available, and there are some holdovers from late spring that are still in excellent shape. This week, there was a lot of green to be seen, in the form of peas, collards, and other hearty greens; plus splashes of color in unexpected places, like the delicate yellow flowers crowning bunches of broccoli rabe.
