Market Report - October 5

I am realizing that it's getting harder and harder to take pictures without a flash. The mornings are really dark and this morning's fog didn't help with the lack of light.

Tons and tons of apples everywhere. I bought a honey crisp apple that weighed almost a pound.

Again with the beautiful gourds and pumpkins. Here's a great idea for a fall table from my friend Eddie Ross, who works for Martha Stewart.

I was never a big fan of dahlias, until I started photographing them. This morning, there were some spectacular colours, including this purple-rimmed one, which almost glows.

We were talking to one of the farmers about the spiral broccoli and the yellow cauliflower and she told us that they were both old varities. She also said that the more "perfect" the produce is, the more likely it is to be a new variety, since we can breed out the imperfections. Hmmm.

That picture of the purple-edged dahlia is gorgeous -- beautiful light.

I think I've just given up on the I-83 Farmer's Market. I can never get my butt out of bed early enough on a Sunday morning :(
