How to choose them

The best cucumbers are firm and smooth to the touch. Avoid wrinkles, soft spots or sliminess. Supermarket cucumbers are often coated in waxy chemicals to give them an appealing sheen. Thankfully, you usually don't have to worry about that issue when you buy your goods at the farmers' market, but it doesn't hurt to ask your vendor, just to be sure.

How to use them

Raw cucumbers are a great addition to salads and sandwiches, and, of course, cukes naturally lend themselves to pickling. You can also use these veggies in refreshing drinks and desserts. No matter what you make, if you don't use the whole cucumber, placing a couple of slices on your eyes is a naturally soothing way to end a long day.

How to store them

Place your cucumbers in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator. They should last for about a week.
