Farmers Market Reds

bouquet with red, orange, yellow, blue, purple
Friday was a beautiful, not too hot day in Highland Park. What a joy to visit the farmer’s market. I usually buy peaches, yellow squash, parsley and a cucumber. If the organic stand features kale, I buy some of that, too. What produce do you like to buy?

Those are pretty blooms. I always enjoy going to the market to buy fresh produce.

Beautiful flowers.

EG Wow says

The blossoms are to die for! Your photo is stunning!

This time of year, I buy zucchini, leaf lettuce and peaches. I grow tomatoes, cucumbers and parsley so I don't need them. ;-)

Leora says

This is my first year growing cucumbers. I got a few, but then the groundhog ate one of my vines. We sent him/her off to a distant park. Haven't had as many as I like.

No matter how much parsley I grow, it's never enough. It may be too late to plant more seeds for fall.

The idea of a farmers market is hopefully a reality by us too, in a couple of years.
I'd love to go there buying vegetables and fresh sun ripen fruit.
I probably would buy so many flowers I could afford.
I usually buy flowers, mostly for the garden once a week. They are food for my soul.

It would be so nice to see you in Haugesund!!!

Ralph says

Anything that is local and fresh is what interests me at a farmer's market. I await the freshest of vegetables which come from faraway in the Winter, but is okay. However, produce from less than a hour away is the best...

What a lot of bright colors in your first shot! Very cheerful.

Oh Leora - what a gorgeous mix of flowers! I think I held my breath when the picture came up. :)
The focus on the flowers in the second - nice job!
I love to buy good ripe cantelope and fresh corn on the cob to go with my own fresh tomatoes and green beans.

I posted some shots from Longstreet Farm, I had a lovely afternoon wandering around the farm

Leora says

Dianne, I greatly enjoyed your Longstreet Farm post. The photos made me smile.

Dianne says

I didn't go in the old house although I took tons of shots of the outside
it was getting really hot - 90+ and my back and legs were giving out

have you ever been to Deep Cut Gardens in Middletown, I was there yesterday
a photographers paradise

Leora says

"Deep Cut Gardens in Middletown" - I will check it out, thanks for the suggestion!

regszikora says

The floral arrangements are perfect

Jew Wishes says

The reds are beautiful and varied tones! I love the sunflowers in the second photo...gorgeous!

Happy RT!

Jientje says

I love the composition of that sunflower picture. I LOVE to buy tomatoes at a farmers market. I think they're a lot tastier than supermarket tomatoes.

Leora says

I can't understand how anyone would buy a supermarket tomato! I grow my own - those are tasty and sweet.

Carver says

These shots from the farmer's market are a feast for the eye. Gorgeous!
