A Brief Tour of This Saturday’s Market

This Saturday I met a friend for iced chai and a cheddar/chive muffin, and then took a stroll down the street to our local Farmer’s Market.  As always, the beauty of the harvest made my pulse quicken.  For those who get excited by this sort of thing, I want to share…

The zucchini and summer squash are glowing autumn colors….

I wonder, do children even know what a real carrot looks like anymore, pulled out of the ground and so sweet?

Rich eggplant…..

And dark, tart/sweet purple berries in turquoise cartons…..

The flower lady displays her bounty like a Renoir…..

I stopped by the Bee Man to look at his bees.  The waxy, dripping honey comb reminds me of being small and what a treat this was (and still is)….

Tri-color fingerling potatoes warm from the earth….

Shiny peppers bursting with flavor…

Mother Earth gives up it’s bounty to the farmer…….the beauty of root crops…

Golden sunflowers to warm the soul…..

    I do the same thing, I take pictures of the vegetables and fruits in Farmer’s Markets, I can’t help myself. My last purchase was from a bee guy, the local honey label says “free range bees.”
