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!

Looks like you had great success this morning!

That looks so fresh and delicious!! Thanks for the tip on the cherries. We actually got a call from the neighbor and she said to go and pick her trees. We got enough to eat for a week. Maybe next year I will pick to freeze, can or dry them.
