"Shipping is a terrible thing to do to vegetables. They probably get jet-lagged, just like people." ~ Elizabeth Berry

We are blessed back home with some wonderful Farmer's Markets to choose from.  Most recently there has been the The Homer Farmer's Market, which has become a wonderful way to spend a Wednesday or Saturday with its assortment of fruits and vegetables, organic meats, homemade soaps and lotions, wool products and entertainment.  And of course there is the long-running and iconic Ithaca Farmer's Market, which is an experience unto itself!

We recently attended the St. Petersburg Farmer's Market.  As with others that we have gone to in recent years, this one seems to have its own personal feel.  The abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables in a vibrant array of colors feel very Floridian!  Wait till you see the peppers below - they seemed almost iridescent. 

~ Fruits and vegetables galore - including some I had never seen nor heard of before ~
~ Arts, crafts and characters ~
~ International foods of every kind, but with a strong emphasis on Cuban ~
~ Dancing grandma's ~
~ Hoola-hoopers ~
~ Incredible peppers ~
~ Just look at those colors ~
And at the end of the street is this lovely scene.  Water is never far away from anywhere that we are here - I just love it!
