Fresh from Flickr – Food Photos from the Farmer’s Market

Here are some photos from my personal collection, I uploaded to Flickr. I took these in June on a trip to a local farmers market, when I visited a good friend in Oakland, CA. Sadly, the produce at my local Stop & Shop is never as robust in color. Perhaps it is the florescent lighting that does it…


Carrots were formerly every color: red, black, yellow, white and especially purple EXCEPT orange!

Sugar snap peas are the result of crossing English peas with snow peas


Tomatoes are not the only foodstuff with this ambiguity: eggplantscucumbers, and squashes of all kinds (such as zucchini and pumpkins) are all botanically fruits, yet cooked as vegetables.


Broadway in New York shifts west at East 10th Street because a cherry tree once stood there.
