Here at Thrive Market, we’re all about supporting sustainable, local farming, and we encourage our members to shop at their local farmers market for seasonal produce—it’s the perfect complement to a pantry full of spices, oils, and cooking essentials from Thrive Market.
Bright and refreshing, a savory watermelon salad is perfection on swampy summer nights. A touch of mint and a hint of Mexican-inspired spice is the perfect foil for sweet sun-ripened watermelon and tomatoes straight from the farmers market.
