If you're looking for great recipes, you'd do well to ask local farmers market vendors or personnel.

Megan Larmer, a former market manager for Low-Line Market in Chicago, regularly shared recipe advice and food tips with customers throughout the season. The Low-Line Market, which closes Oct. 17, features prepared food, produce, and other items. (lowlinemarket.com)

The following recipe for Blueberry Buckle is a favorite of Larmer's. It's taken from Deanna House's 1981 Cookbook "House Specialties."

Blueberry Buckle

2 cups flour

3/4 cups sugar

2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup vegetable oil

3/4 cup milk

1 egg (*C&D Family Farms)

2 cups fresh blueberries (*Piedt Farms)

Topping:

1/2 cup sugar

1/3 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 cup softened butter (*Nordic Creamery)

DIRECTIONS: In large mixing bowl, sift together 2 cups flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together vegetable oil, milk, and egg. Pour liquid ingredients into flour mixture. Stir just until flour disappears. Fold in blueberries. Pour batter into a buttered 9" square baking pan. In a small bowl, mix together the topping ingredients until crumbly, then sprinkle evenly over the batter. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 25-30 minutes.
