Farmers market roundup: July 26-Aug. 1

There’s such an abundance of fruit around the markets these days, I sometimes lose sight of all the wonderful vegetables. Blame my sweet tooth. Amid the piles of squash, eggplant and peppers, you’ll probably start to see boxes of okra. Of the places on our roundup this week, you can find it at Wednesday’s Farmers Market at Maryland (which has new hours, by the way).
