I haven't been to the farmer's market for a few weeks, so I stopped by this morning to get some veggies as a gift for a friend who is making us dinner tonight. I was wondering about the colors I'd see today since we're now in the middle of September. New season, new fruits, vegetables, flowers in their prime. Would it be noticably different from summer's color palette? Well yes indeed it was, I soon found out. Screaming gorgeous colors, a bit darker, more subtle, mixed with the sparkling hot hues of late summer. Dazzling.
Eggplant purples contrasting with hot yellows, nestled against tomato reds. I had no idea peppers came in such a range of stunning colors. And oh my god, the beans. Long, stick sized purple ones and pale waxy yellow ones and sturdy chartreuse green ones. Painted looking squash in greens and whites and yellow. The textures, the smells, the colors. It was a morning of breathtaking, colorful fun.
There's more color on flicker, september farmer's market.
