Sunday at the Farmers Market

Did you know last week was National Farmers Market Week?  I read that fact somewhere and that's what prompted me to visit my local farmers market this morning.  It is held near the bay so being outside near that water was a perfect way to spend a Sunday morning.  I didn't buy any fruits or veggies but brought home some beautiful flowers. 

Here are a few pictures from this morning.

I love the eye catching rainbow of colors. 

The potatoes have a wonderful texture.

This is one of my favorite pictures of the day.

Do you frequent farmers markets? What do you usually like to buy.

Hi Leela,

Don't worry, there is always next weekend...assuming your market is weekly.

we just went to a tomato festival this evening, with all local delish. farmers markets are the best, and one of the best places to take photos.

Great photos.

We love the market! My husband is a chef and goes multiple times a week for the restaurant and always picks up some fresh veggies for home!

There's a really great recipe over on the blog for some 'maters and eggplant.

Congrats on the new blog!

Gretchen: You are right. Farmers markets really are great photo ops. I took about 80 pictures today! I would love to hear about the tomato festival.

Katy: Your eggplant tower recipe sounds great. The shrimp tacos also look yummy!

Thanks to the both of you for stopping by and commenting.
