Meet 'Times' food and lifestyle editor Michelle Stark at St. Petersburg farmers' market

Avocado and grapefruit garnished with fresh mint. Green and yellow summer squash lightly dressed and topped with Parmesan cheese.

These are some of the things Tampa Bay Times food and lifestyle editor Michelle Stark will be cooking at downtown St. Petersburg's Saturday Morning Market this weekend.

On May 4, you can meet Michelle and sample food at the market's Tasting Table. She'll be creating recipes from scratch using ingredients available at the market — and then sharing the results with marketgoers.

Look for Michelle at the Tasting Table tent shortly after the market opens. You can also enter to win a basket of culinary goodies.

Michelle became the Times' food editor in 2015, taking on the role of sharing culinary joy through from-scratch recipes and stories about our community. She grew up in Florida, graduating from the University of South Florida in 2010 and joining the Times that same year.

She creates recipes weekly, sharing them in her Cooking newsletter every Thursday, and on Instagram and Twitter.
