Farmers' Market


Usually when I visit the downtown Farmers' Market on Saturday or Sunday, I overbuy and come home with more vegetable than we can possible use and eat. On Friday I decided to go to a satellite market held on a church parking lot. There was less variety and fewer vendors, but I came home with...guess what? Too many vegetables...more than we can eat! People watching was also abundant!

  1. This is such a natural shot and I like the soft light cast by the tent. She has such a nice smile I'd have bought too many veggies off her too.

  2. I think it must be the same everywhere. We have a farmer's market in the shopping center parking lot on Tuesdays and Saturdays and when we buy there we end up eating the same thing for a long time. Like green beans.

    Nice photo of the lady.

  5. Doesn't everything look so good at a farmer's market? Not only the vegies and fruit but the homemade breads and jams. Yum. How could we NOT overbuy :)

  7. Even though we have the big Farmers' Market downtown, we still have little markets all around the area.

    I just bought Heirlooms and Bradleys at the Market the other day. . . . LOVE them!

  8. During my look back at your photos I really like the people pictures & this one, with the expression, is my favorite.

  9. Kate,
    I come home with the opposite problem. I get so engrossed in photographing the veggies, the dogs , their owners, the live music, that i came home with nary a tomato or peach last time. That's just crazy.

  10. It is always difficult to pass up all the wonderfully fresh fruits and vegetables, especially that grown locally. I think it's because we know it is short-lived and soon we will be back to greenhouse tomatoes and imported things that were picked green. This is a very nice candid shot.
