The Farmer's Market series has been a lesson in eating with the seasons. Now that Fall has set in, there is a marked change in the vegetables offered at the market and you will notice it in the two pictures I am posting.
This pictures is from Farmer's Market from third week of October. As you can see that the vegetables were a mix of summer an fall with bottlegourd, red radishes and bell peppers of summer time and rainbow chards, cauliflower and apples of fall. The special was a box of raspberries. It was probably one of the last days when fresh raspberries were available. I froze half of it to use it in winter.
And this is a picture of the things we got from the Farmer's Market this past weekend. As you can see, gone are the cucumbers, peppers and bottlegourds. We picked up a delicious red cabbage, kale, chard, apples and some carrots.
I got chatting with a Farmer and she told me that they have vegetables till December and then it starts dwindling. So I plan to continue making my Saturday morning trip till it is available.
Speaking of Fall, I didn't have to go too far to find Fall colors this year. The red Maple tree in the frontyard has turned brilliant red and the other trees on the road provided the other colors. Here are a couple of pictures I took this past weekend.
