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

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

string beans

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

tomatoes

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.

cherries

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