Many of the vegetable stands at the Nashville Farmers Market are arranged like those in the beautiful open-air street markets in Paris, with orderly pyramids of tomatoes edged prettily by green and golden peppers. If you need a recipe for preparing something, be sure and ask--the people who grow the stuff usually are pretty good chefs at cooking it up.
