Stopping at a Farmers Market

I have to say it’s pretty hard to beat the colors at a farmers market. They’ve become a favorite subject for me.

How can anything compete with the deep purple of fresh eggplant,


or orange carrots and red beets?


Did you know there was such a thing as golden beets? I didn’t.

I liked the colors so much, I “polarized” this one. . . .

[A caveat for iPhone users of the Polarize app: it only works on iOS4.2.1. If you upgrade to 4.3, you’ll no longer get it. Chris Comair, the guy who developed the app, went on to other things and no one’s come up with another version.]

I like how these yellow-green pears look in their baby blue containers


and it’s hard to top the freshness of green-and-white spring onions.


Though not as colorful, these artisan breads look wonderful to me.



All taken with the iPhone.

Great weekend, everyone!

    Oh yum! When I saw the thumbnail for this post on FB, I thought the eggplants were actually purple coloured beads! Wonderful array of market-fresh produce! The colours are oh so cheery on this snowy day north. Thanks, Carole

    I think one of the very first of your posts I saw and that made me follow your blog immeditely was one on vegetables in Spain.
    I agree the colors are stunning.
    The first is my favourite as it’s my favourite color.
