Several of my blogging friends have been showing off their local Farmers' Markets, so I thought I'd take a trip through my own after a nice walk with the ladies. I wasn't hungry, which is the best way for me to make my way through the market without filling up.
This one is easy for me to resist, because I've got so many tomatoes ripening in my own garden that I can't keep up. I just went out to harvest some and ate a ripe one right from the vine, juice running down my chin. So good! (I was told that those green things on the left are ripe tomatoes, just a different kind. I might have to try one.)
Flowers and garlic
It's the time of year when the dahlias are beginning to flower. This will continue through the month of September and into October. We are very fortunate to have our market open until the last Saturday before Christmas, with seasonal vegetables that change through the months. Soon it will be pumpkins and squash, but for now, I'm thrilled with all the myriad summer delights.
Rabbit Fields Farm
There's Roslyn (also known as Tattooed Lady) behind her magnificent bounty. My zucchini hasn't done all that well, but between gifted ones and those she sells, I've had no shortage of them. This is one of the best times of year, late summer. I hope you are able to visit a local market or two.
