Barter a bushel of berries -- strawberries, loganberries, and gooseberries are in season -- down to a dime at your local farmers' market? Try a farmer's scrumptious recipe for cooking courgettes? Find a seedless six-foot sunflower? Prove it! If you're visiting your local farmers' market -- I'll be visiting mine in Union Square (14th St./Broadway, open 8-6) -- or expecting a visit from your farmer through CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) this weekend, snap a photo for our weekly slideshow. We want to see photos of your most interesting finds whether they are a bargain, a barter, or just plain yum!
