 tomatoes for white wednesday

Summer means wonderful fresh fruits and vegetables. On a recent trip to the State Farmers Market I had my camera in the car and snapped a few photographs of summer freshness right off the farm. This is one of the reasons I love summer.

The sweet face of one of the farmers I purchased my vegetables from. Farmers work so hard to make their crops, and as hard as they work everything depends on mother nature. This hard working farmer deserves every penny he charges. Thank You Sir!


  1. Beautiful images! thanks for taking us along to the market. We've been eating our way though a bushel and a half of fresh Texas peaches. Definitely a perk of summer!

  2. What a beautiful post! Love all those market pics...so colourful! Great summer snaps. Thanks for sharing:)
    Hope to see you on my blog:)

  3. Oh, this is the beauty of summer! Love the produce and farmer's markets!
    What great images.

  4. I can get lost at the farmer's market! Thanks for sharing! Visiting from A Southern Daydreamer...

  5. I so agree with you about the farmers. And your photos of the produce are fabulous. I love bruschetta and make it all summer. My favorite is the one you show with chopped tomatoes, garlic and basil. Happy summer!

  6. Good looking veggies!...Christine

  7. My stomach is starting to growl from hunger looking at all these fresh veggies. You are lucky enough to have found this farmer to purchase fresh produce from. Nice job on the photographs.

  9. Hi Emily, I am so glad that I receive your new posts by email, as I still don't get them in Blooger. I tried unfollowing and re-following but nothing works. I would love a collection of these beautiful photos framed and hanging on a wall in my kitchen. I love the farmer at the end, he worked hard all his life, sweet old gent! xo,

  10. Your farmer's market looks so wonderful! It is just too hot here and the produce reached its peak weeks ago. I miss my tomatoes. I do have a neighbor who is still bringing me cucumbers, but the end is near.

  11. How delicious those fruits and vegetables look! I haven't been to the Farmer's Market this year, last year I sold my soaps there but this year I've been too lazy.

  12. I love shopping at farmers' markets. The produce is so fresh, local, and delicious. I also buy fresh flowers from them. Your bruschetta looks delicoius! :D

  13. Yes...I agree...thanks to all the farmers who grow our food...I have a vegetable garden and realize how hard it can be sometimes...and that's just a tiny plot of land! Great photos!!

  14. We just went to a farmer's market, too. I will be sharing pics soon. Nothing like fresh produce. I am a nut for peaches. thanks for joining the party.

  15. Hi Emily, We have a farmers market a couple of miles from our home that we visit every Saturday. There is nothing better than home grown vegetables. Thanks for joining my party this week.

  16. Few things make me as happy as shopping at a farmers market and taking in all of earths goodness!!! Your pictures are stunning and make me want to reach in and grab a peach and tomato. I made fresh brushetta the other day, and it was AMAZING, the tomatos still warm from the vine...isn't it the best!!!!!

  17. The roadside stands and weekly markets are the places to be in summertime! I agree with you about farmers deserving every penny they make!
