Seasonal Cookbooks

CFM is proud to release a new series of seasonal community cookbooks featuring recipes and stories from the individuals who come together each week to make our farmers markets happen: farmers, vendors, market supporters, and chefs, including Billy Allin, Terry Koval, Steven Satterfield, Jarrett Stieber, and Virginia Willis. And, we have tested and reviewed these recipes ourselves to ensure that you have a wonderful experience cooking them at home as well!

Just as these recipes celebrate the ephemeral ingredients of each season, these books serve as portraits of our growing community. We are all tied together by the food we cook and eat, and every recipe in our book tells a unique story about its contributor. We hope that you enjoy reading, collecting, and cooking from these books, and that you’ll share your stories, too – with each other, with your neighbors, and in our next edition, Fall!

The books are available to purchase for $12 at the market info booth at all of our farmers markets, A Capella Books, Bellina AlimentariCover Books, and Preserving Place. We hope to see you (and your recipes) soon!

To purchase the books online, please visit The Bitter Southerner or Fresh Harvest websites.
