Independence Day at the Market

(Don't worry; it's only a tablecloth!)

I celebrate my independence from imported food every Saturday at my local farmers market. Today my tote bag was loaded down with fingerling "peanut" potatoes, a loaf of multigrain bread, the first local tomatoes of the season, slender carrots, seascape strawberries, arugula, lettuce mix, a lavender bouquet, enormous Liberty Bell cherries from a new vendor called Glengarry Fruitlands, and a flower bouquet with the first local sunflowers I've seen.

Happy 4th of July!
