This might be my favorite time of year to visit the farmers' market. Summer has ended. Autumn took over, though it hasn't quite set in. The mornings and nights become cooler, but the days remain warm and sunny. Late summer seems to collide with autumn right at this very moment, producing the best of both seasons. Butternut squash and Swiss chard make their appearance, yet eggplants and basil are still plentiful. It makes for a beautiful display of heirloom tomatoes, peppers, crisp apples, and pears. Here's a peak at how I spent last Sunday morning, perusing display tables in the sunshine. I sampled apple cider, bought a handmade headband, and a giant three-dollar yellow heirloom I couldn't resist, despite the fact that I have a mountain of tomatoes at home. If only all mornings could start this way.
