Every week another area farmers market kicks off its season.

The Saturday market at Green Spring Station resumes this weekend. That's from 2-5 p.m. on the Stone Mill Bakery parking lot. Among the 20-plus vendors are local farmers and producers of specialty foods. I'm curious about Burgers, Beer & Beans in a Box.

Also this week, we've launched From the Harvest, a new feature in the Wednesday Taste section. Each week will offer recipes for one currently abundant market vegetable. The series begins with -- how could we resist -- asparagus. John Houser III has recipes for Grilled Asparagus in Kimchi Bacon Emulsion and Shaved Asparagus with Prosciutto and Poached Egg on Toast
