At the Boston Public Market, the taste of summer is everywhere -- in corn, sun gold tomatoes, peaches and so much more.

It's the height of farmer's market season in New England, but the question is, what should you buy? How should you cook it?

Guests

Jody Adams, James Beard Award-winning chef of Rialto in Harvard Square and TRADE in the Seaport District. She tweets @Rialto02138.

Michael Scelfo, chef and owner at Alden and Harlow in Harvard Square. He tweets @mscelfo.
