Farmers Market – Fall Harvest

We got up early on Saturday morning and ventured to the farmers market, where we found a wonderful fall harvest of goodies. We really lucked out with gorgeous fall weather too.

We saw lots of fingerling potatoes, carrots, tomatoes, bell peppers, sweet corn, apples, and watermelon.

We also saw the usual: cheese, bakery, honey, and flowers. The dahlias were stunning!

I saw a couple new ways people are displaying their crops at the market, from this giant basket of lettuce,

My favorite finds were pumpkin scones, pumpkin cookies, apple cider donuts and applesauce.

This particular market really got me in the mood for the fall season, and some fall cooking and baking, which I haven’t been doing much lately. Thanks for stopping by!

  • When I was up there last month my MIL took me to their farmers market in West Bend and OH MY GOODNESS it was marvelous!!! I was slightly jealous! We have nothing like that here in NC…..maybe in Raleigh,but not Fayetteville where I live. So looking at your beautiful pics from the market is wonderful eye candy!! Hope all is well with you:):)
