Does this week's summer-like weather put you in the mood for some fresh corn or warm, sun rippened tomatoes? How about a tote bag full of cukes and zukes? While these foods aren't quite ready at the local farm, we are definitely headed into outdoor farmers market season.

Food contributor Rhonda Schuldt stops in to talk about what to expect from Pittsburgh's many farmers markets.

All summer, Rhonda will be visiting markets in the region and reporting back on her finds, from the food to the interesting stories behind the local vendors. If you have a market or farm you want Rhonda to visit, contact her at LocalGoodness.com, on Twitter @LocalGoodness or on the Local Goodness Facebook page.
