“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place . . . I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
~ Elliott Erwitt
My beloved market has gone into hibernation. It’s near freezing outside and my diet has moved from high-raw to hot soups . . . ahh, I love the seasons. I took these pictures during our last few visits to market back in December. What I love about them is the colors – proof that there’s still such a thing as fresh produce in winter! It may not be the bountiful berries and peaches and cukes from last summer, but there’s rainbow chard, and hard squash, and purple potatoes. There’s still plenty to treasure eating locally in winter. Also, this year Damian and I decided that the Savoy Cabbage is probably the most beautiful vegetable ever:
Every morning our first stop was coffee at Velo:
Followed by breakfast at Blacksheep:
Then on to market!
Deep Roots is one of my very favorites, they’re un-certified but all organic and always have amazing prices. Best peppers, best soft squash. Cheapest tomatoes.
Our final buy from Deep Roots (for Damian’s favorite, of course!)
Petunia’s gluten-free vegan pastries.
Gluten-free artisan breads.
Insert joke about eating Freddy’s nuts. But seriously, these are the best hazelnuts I’ve ever tasted; we gave away bunches of them as gifts this year!
Dave is an ex-con turned baker, and Dave’s Killer Bread is the best sandwich bread you can buy, just ask anybody who’s ever had it.
