Welcome to Farmer’s Market Finds—a summer series on what to buy at the farmer’s market week to week. Every Wednesday, we’ll visit Union Square Greenmarket in New York City and choose one in-season fruit or vegetable to focus on. Then we’ll share some of our favorite recipes to try out at home. This week, it’s all about blackberries.

Blackberries are the summer fruit you didn’t know you needed. They’re only truly in season in August, so now’s the perfect time to experiment with this tangy berry. When you’re on the hunt for them, choose blackberries that are deep in color for the most sweetness. Ideally, you want to choose berries that are shiny and firm, as opposed to soft and mushy. Use them within a week, or freeze them (like this) for up to a year. However you want to utilize this juicy fruit, these tempting recipes are a delicious place to start.
