There used to be a farmer's market every Sunday morning at a municipal airport near the house in which I grew up. My parents would be there every Sunday. Local, small farmers would line their trucks on both sides of the parking lot and open their trucks to show off their fresh produce.

I never cared much for those Sunday morning excursions. For one thing, those were EARLY mornings. Sleep trumped good food back then. Secondly, mom never seemed to buy the fruits and veggies I wanted.

She would buy bushels of green peppers (for roasting), lots of tomatoes, corn, and green beans. She skipped over the watermelons and cherries that my belly craved.

The farmer's market attendance waned over the years. Fewer and fewer farmers and buyers made it out each Sunday. My mom was faithful up until the peppers and tomatoes disappeared.

At the time, I was grateful; I could finally sleep in on Sundays. But the gravel lot that held the market each Sunday was eventually converted into a blacktopped bike path. Over the years it occurred to me that I got way more use out of that old farmer's market than I did the bike path.

It saddened me to think how times had changed. What happened to all those farmers and what happened to their land? All that hard work, tradition, and pride. You just don't see that in your big grocery store chains.

This grilled cheese pays homage to those farmer's market days. This sandwich is inspired by my naan pizza and my grilled chicken pizza. Deli chicken slices, fresh peach slices, halved cherries and crisp poblano peppers are tucked inside country style bread slices. Creamy, spreadable Brie cheese holds everything together and makes this sandwich taste outstanding.
