There is something about photographs of food that I just cannot get enough of. Confession. Most of the foodie blogs I follow are those whose author focuses on photography just as much as they do on their food and recipes. In fact, most of the recipes I read and pin I never actually get around to making. I’ve got an entire board dedicated to food pics on Pinterest which torture me daily as I attempt to lose the last of my baby (#1) weight.
This weeks theme was right up my alley. Our local farmers market is stellar and I absolutely adore it. When we lived downtown I’d go weekly and buy my produce, taste fresh veggies, and chat with the farmers. Heck, I even organized playdates with friends at the market. Sadly, we now live 30 minutes away and I don’t get down there as often as I’d like. I stopped by this morning with the boys to snap some photos and was so glad I made the trip down.
I was stopped no less than three times and asked what newspaper I work for. HA! One old grandma even said I looked like I was in a “real creative zone” as I snapped away at some bright red beets. Tip: if you want to look like you know what you’re doing all you’ve got to do is carry around an entry level DSLR and act creative. Worked for me. I laughed with the grandma and explained that I was just trying to kill some time before naps.
Though it’s still technically root vegetable season at our market, herbs and strawberries are starting to make an appearance. Soon the stalls will overflow with peaches, blueberries, tomatoes, corn, beans of every kind, lettuces, peppers, and zucchinis.
Fall apples become spring apple cider.
Pecans. I absolutely adore the colors in this picture and want to live in that barrel of pecans.
Hope that got the tummy growling a little. Go visit your local farmers market! And, be sure to check out the rest of my P52 friends.
