In honor of the USDA-proclaimed "National Farmers Market Week" (August 4-10), restaurants are showcasing the best seasonal produce—often procured from nearby farmers markets. What's peaking in a farmers market near you depends on your locale, but it's safe to say that peaches, summer squash, melons, corn and tomatoes are in abundance almost everywhere.
