Public Market, November 10

Roots

I love how I've been to the Market every week for the past couple of months, and I always find something new and beautiful to photograph. Maya's Farm had root veggies.

Yali pears at Maya's farm. Mmmmm!

Garlic

I buy a bulb every week or two from One Windmill Farm. I always look for bulbs with untorn, close-fitting paper, and with tight cloves.

Lemon cucumbers

Luckily, Crooked Skies has lemon cucumbers again. For as humble as they appear, they deliver a wonderfully intoxicating lemon scent and flavor.

Red onion

I also buy my onions from One Windmill Farm. This week, I bought a red onion for my SAS (Sandwiches and Sweets) party.

English cucumbers

These aren't the giants you'll find at the supermarket, but with their delicate, paper-thin skin and sweet, firm flesh, I think I got the better deal. They made awesome cucumber sandwiches.

Asian Yali pears

I'm not convinced that I identified these correctly. I was so happy when I grabbed them up from Maya's Farms, envisioning them wrapped in cream cheese along with some grapes and cucumber--oh, such a sandwich, that I only noted that they were Asian pears.

I also made two new friendly acquaintances. Leslie and Phil, if you're out there, it was a pleasure meeting you!
