Berries from your local farmers’ market are extra-special. Small farms have the luxury of growing unique varieties that are much more interesting than what’s at the grocery store.

These delicate, ruby red raspberries are just right for tossing on salad, making raspberry vinaigrette, or one of my favorite summer desserts — berry trifle.
