Part of the thing I love about the farmer’s market is chatting with the farmers. It’s always fun to meet new people and I love discussing how they make their crafts, grow their vegetables and raise their meat. 

Last Saturday, I had a great discussion with one the pepper farmers about stuffed peppers . I went home with some beautiful green peppers, Italian sausage, and a mind bursting with ideas. I couldn’t wait to work on this recipe for stuffed peppers with a pizza twist.
