The Bounties of Summer
Imagine how surprised I was to find out that every Saturday beginning May 31st to October something that there is a Farmer’s Market right across the river from where we live. My daughter insists that I knew this, but somehow I forgot. I think that is highly unlikely, but I will proceed!
If we had a canoe, we would have to walk 2 blocks and paddle across the Chattahoochee River and we’d be there. However, without such canoe, we have to take the standard roads to arrive at this fun little market.
Immediately, I commented to my husband that this looks like…don’t say it, he said. It is not Costa Mesa, California. Do you see the ocean. Well, no, but it DID remind me of Costa Mesa.
Come with me to the farmer’s market…
Home grown herbs with an Asian flair..
Fresh beans…crunchy cucumbers…
Peppers, tomatoes, and jalapenos, Oh My!
Summer squash and baby eggplants
Fresh herbs, lemon cucumbers (which I purchased to try)
The sweet corn doesn’t get any fresher than this.
Anyone for watermelon?
Bring your game on…
Home made pastas made with peppers and spinach…oh yum!
Breads for the masses…
Here’s Becky…sharing the bounty from her flower gardens…
What are these brilliant flowers?
Her display was fetching.
All in all, I will return next week to try the home made tamales, salsa and chips and the baked breads and muffins and the home made honey and the fresh eggs and the sweet cream…..Whew…I’m exhausted from just thinking about it all!
