At the Farmer's Market

If it's Tuesday, I've been to Roots Market (locally pronounced to rhyme with "puts"). This time of year there is an embarrassment of riches, with lots of summer produce still available and the fall fruits and veggies coming into season. I know I meet or exceed my recommended daily allowance of produce--it's all so good, and so reasonably priced, and I get the added pleasure of interacting with the farmers, that I buy a lot!

The colors and textures are an added bonus and a feast for the senses, as in the purple cabbage, above, and bunches of cockscomb flowers:

I love the intricate ruffles on these:
