July's Farmer's Market Report: Lots of Summer Squash, More Eggplants and Tomatoes

It's been a long time since I've made pizzas at home so I went to the Wednesday Santa Monica Farmer's Market to find some vegetables inspiration for some pizzas. All varieties of summer squash were in abundance at several stands so I decided to buy a basket for pizza. There are also quite a few varieties of eggplants, plus more and more tomatoes and the first peppers. I'm going to hold off on the eggplant, tomatoes and peppers for another few weeks, but definitely plan on buying lots in August. In addition to the summer squash, we also bought spinach for a pizza, as well as salad greens, okra, elephant garlic for roasting, and corn. Should be a good week of cooking with lots of vegetables.
The cutest baby squash ever, like the size of my pinkie
