Field Trip to Farmers Market

I can’t remember the last time we made a field trip to the farmers market, so it was a thrill to go this past weekend.

It was the last weekend of summer, no better time to get out there while the weather was still warm and sunny.

There were so many vibrant colors to soak in.

I noticed a lot more varieties of peppers on this visit.

Has anyone ever heard of chocolate peppers? I wish I had asked the farmer what these tasted like, but it was so crowded, I never got the chance.

I’m excited for apple season, which has always been one of my favorite fruits (in addition to berries). I bought a few Courtlands that I’m excited to try.

Many of my favorite flowers, mums and asters, were blooming and ready to be taken home.

Every year, when Fall arrives, I see all sorts of big, bold, beautiful sunflowers, and realize I forgot to plant them. I think they are the happiest flower!

I also notice these strawberry flowers every year at the beginning of the Fall season. Talk about bold, vibrant colors!

Dahlias always get lots of oohs and aahs from passersby, especially these bouquets with their rich colors.

There was also a nice selection of ornamental pumpkins and gourds already, which really get you in the mood for fall.

Hope you found some inspiration this weekend too. Thank you for stopping by!

  • after seeing all the sunflowers here last year, I told myself I was going to plant some at our house….I definitely forgot to plant them as well 😦

  • How beautiful! I love the photo with all the red peppers and the one green one. I have heard there will be no u-pick for apples here this year, because our apple harvest is so bad (due to the frost earlier this spring). I feel bummed about that!

    Every year I mean to remind you to plant those sunflowers cos you always forget so next spring you and I should plant some sunflower seeds on the same weekend and then we can compare them at the end of the summer – how about it? I ALWAYS love your farmers market posts and I wonder how you resist coming home with way too much stuff as I would go fresh produce crazy lol. You definitely should have bought a chocolate pepper to try. I love seeing those autumn mums too – the colours are gorgeous.

  • Beautiful photos! I love seeing all the beautiful foliage that we can’t grow here! Simply beautiful!

  • ohhh these pics are so lovely!!! love the bright colors 🙂

  • Farmers markets are always so fun! A great way to see and try new foods! Thanks so much for sharing yours, a reminder that the season will be ending soon, seeing the gourds and squash! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
