IN THE FIELD: You Know It’s Summertime When…


Saturday morning I visited the famers market here in town. It’s not a large market, but there are a nice variety of foods produced by local farmers and merchants.

The goods available included all natural grass fed beef, baked goods of many varieties, jams, jellies, preserved vegetables, eggs, cheeses, and milk straight from the farm with no processing. In addition to all this great food were two produce stands brimming with seasonal vegetables, fruits, berries and flowers.

I’m pretty sure it’s going to be a great foodie summer!

    I like the play of shadow and light on the apricots. Now I’m hungry 🙂

      This was taken under a gazebo and the morning sun was filtering through some tree branches and into the gazebo. Outside of them looking totally delish…the light really caught my eye!

    Yumm…those fresh foods look delicious! Love the light on those apricots too.

      And they are…the apricots were picked that morning!

    the lighting on the apricots just brings out their warmth and deliciousness and that corn looks so juicy, I can taste it. I like farmers markets, the good food, the rustic labels and the characters that you find there.

      I like farmers markets for exactly the same reasons! There is always something to feast one’s eyes on!

        probably the only place where I can find a good tasting peach or nectarine. The ones at the grocers taste like wood.

      • July 15, 2013 at 8:50 am

        Taste like wood…too funny but you are right!

    Fresh apricots…how wonderful but your photo of the fresh corn is something that is calling my name. It looks so fresh!

    • July 11, 2013 at 2:13 pm

      Kinda makes just want to sink your teeth into those fresh kernels! Oh, and the apricots are so good!

    How beautiful… as if I could take one of them 🙂 Thank you, love, nia

      Thanks Ted, I couldn’t decide which represented the market best…so I posted these four. It was a tough decision with so much to choose from.

  9. July 11, 2013 at 12:01 am

    These all look good, but oh my, that corn!

    • July 11, 2013 at 2:19 pm

      Ahhhh…just imagine bathing this ear in warm melted butter and then taking a giant bite! Mmmmmmmmmmmmm

  10. July 11, 2013 at 3:53 am

    These images are superb! You can almost smell the freshness. I love these kind of markets too.

    • July 13, 2013 at 11:24 am

      Thanks Jo, there were even more goodies on display this morning. I’d rather shop in places like this…support the local economy and the folks are just so darn friendly!

    Yummy, yummy!!


    • July 14, 2013 at 10:47 am
