Farmer's Market Saturday

An Abundance of Summer Color!

It seems all this rain we've been having in the Northeast has filled the farm stands with bright color! This week, I couldn't decide which I liked better, the fruits or the vegetables, so here are a few of each.

Samoscott Orchards never fails to impress me with their selection of fresh fruits. This week, the sour cherries flanked by fresh blueberries made for a great contrast.

A new merchant has arrived on teh scene in Inwood Market, Nolasco Farms, and they had some great tomatilos today, as well as some really brightly colored purple beans. What is it with the purple colored veggies? They're great! Last season, I photographed some gorgeous purple peppers, and acouple of weeks ago, we had that purple kohlrabi, and now the purple beans. What's next, purple heirloom tomotoes? I'll let you know.

I got these shots just before the heavens opened up and dumped another load of rain on us. More to come in another post...
