Sour pie cherries are now arriving at farmers markets, but if you have your heart set on baking one of those all-American beauties for your Fourth of July barbecue, we suggest you don't dilly-dally: They're only available in limited quantities. Speaking of cherries, the Lake City Farmers Market is celebrating all varieties of Washington's cherry bounty today, with Carlos Caula from Greenwood's Carmelita restaurant on hand with tips on cherry-centric dishes. Be sure, too, to modify your menus this week to include sweet bell peppers, apricots, and raspberries--all new arrivals to farmers markets across the city.
Lake City Farmers Market, Thursdays, 3-7 p.m.
