Enjoying Summer’s Bounty

DSC_0088e2cw title

Truly one of the best things about summer is the wonderful fresh produce that is available! I relish visiting farmers markets every week from April through the late fall. It is always a treat for the senses seeing the colorful variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables as well as the flowers and plants, fresh eggs, cheeses, local honey, organic meats and poultry, homemade breads, and other assorted products offered by the vendors.  Often there are musicians as well, adding to the sensory delight. On Saturday morning I visited our town’s weekly Farmers’ Market. It was a beautiful sunny morning and my Farmers Market visit was a thoroughly delightful experience. I took a few photos with my cell phone of some of the beautiful produce.

Of course, there are always lots of tomatoes available from the vendors during Tomato Fest week. I have always been a huge fan of tomatoes. So I L.O.V.E. when tomato season rolls around.
