Farmers Market 2009 - Summer into Fall

Winter squash, bosc pears, late peaches and early apples were offered at our Saturday farmers market this weekend. A sure sign of summer's long slide into fall.

Click on over to Mimi's kitchen to see what's in her CSA box.

Oh, Christine, that is to die for! Those colors! That sturdiness. I can feel the squash in my hand.

Thanks for the link.

Now that is quite a haul~lovely,lovely produce! I am so jealous of not having seasonal veggies way down here in Florida. I just drove 2000 miles up to Erie, PA to visit my mom and brought back two huge pumpkins! My trunk was so packed i could not take anymore! I am waiting to put the pumpkins outside on the porch, but it is still too darn hot here that I am afraid they will cook out there!

I love the change of season. As much as I have enjoyed the summer bounty, there is something so comforting about squash, pumpkins and pears. Galettes, stews and braises are in the air.

Christine said...

You are so welcome Mimi. I love fall vegetable still lifes.

I hope you take (and post) a photo of those pumpkins, Jann. I would love to see them. Sorry about the heat out your way.

I agree Penny. I especially love the summer to fall transition. There is something about the "coming in" and preparing to make all those wonderful, comforting fall/winter dishes that really speaks to me.

Love it, Fall's bounty is already here, and I hadn't even noticed, probably because I haven't been to a farmer's market lately, or maybe because I'm in denial about Summer being over!

Gorgeous!
I have butternut from my garden, but nothing else. Winter squashes are not big here....

Christine said...

Hi Katie,
I wonder why squashes are not big there. Surely they would grow well in the climate. Soil maybe?
Welcome home!

Very nice collection. Colorful, too. Will we get to read about you make with them? Yum!

Christine said...

I know, I know, Paz. I've been such a sloth about posting! I promiose you will get to read about what I make with these. Really! :)

Paz said...

LOL! I didn't mean to point a finger or sound accusatory, since my blog posts have been sorely lacking for a while. But I'll be happy to read your food posts anytime. ;-)

I thought it was the perfect nudge, Paz! :)))

Christine, Weren't you at Blogher in San Fransciso? Seems I saw your picture on Kaylyn's blog.

Hi Penny,
Sadly I was not able to attend the Food BlogHer conference because I didn't sign up in time. I did drive to the Bay Area to have lunch with Kalyn and Grace at Chez Panisse and then dinner that night in SF with a number of bloggers who were attending the conference. I heard that you got lucky and got someone's cancellation? Lucky you! I won't miss the next one!
