Rochester, MI - by Hannah Stewart - This weekend, May 7th, 2022, the downtown Rochester, Michigan farmers market enjoyed its opening weekend, and the community showed up.

Within 10 minutes of opening, people from all over Oakland County had flooded the market, ready to support local businesses and enjoy the fresh foods this Michigan farmers market had to offer.

Today we will feature a recipe inspired by the downtown Rochester Farmers Market featuring ONLY ingredients purchased on opening day.

Roasted Tomato Pasta Sauce with Whole Rotisserie Chicken

This roasted tomato pasta sauce with whole rotisserie chicken was inspired by the local farmers and all the wonderful ingredients they had to offer.

Cooking for me is a way I show love to the people around me, and purchasing local ingredients from people who cultivate food with love brings so much to any dish.

Having the opportunity to head to my local farmers market and buy ingredients made with love, to then be inspired at home to cook with love, means so much to me. And today I couldn’t be more excited to bring you into my home and share with you some of the food I’ve made with love because of my local farmers' market.
