Half Way Through Market Season

Melons made their debut this week from Denison Farms. This golden one is called Tangerine Dream. We were all amazed by the lovely scroll designs and the depth of flavor of this melon.

Yellow Doll and the Super Bowl were the other two there. More varieties are on their way.

Denison grows lovely lettuce, and at $1.50 a head, it can't be beat.

The cherry and pear tomatoes are like candy, so sweet and delicious, it is hard to pick a favorite.

I love my Saturdays at the Market. Working with Tom Denison and the crew, and all the great organic produce really makes my day.

Oh I love the shot with all the tomatoes! And that melon...Yum!

I think it is extremely cool that you get to go to a farmer's market regularly. But I think it is even more cool that you work with them. Awesome!

I love this old style fruit and vegetable markets...
It's a real shame that were I live there aren't any like this one... It's nice to touch the fruit, feel if is ripe and everything... at the supermarket it's everything so packaged up.

Your blog is adorable!
