Default Veggies from a Farmer's Market

As always I've amused myself taking photos while accompanying my wife to a farmer's market last Sat. The first two are of a purple and yellow colored sweet pepper I hadn't seen before.

A.C. I like these, plus as being a farmer enjoy seeing people using farmers markets instead of the big chain stores.

You mean food doesn't come from supermarkets? Next you're going to tell me milk doesn't come from a plastic bottle, aren't you.

Excellent color and composition. I've never seen purple and yellow peppers before.

(Maybe I should ask my supermarket to start growing them. LOL)

I don't think they will. A couple of months ago my local supermarket started selling Ugli tomatoes but then stopped. I think people complained that they actually tasted like a tomato, unlike the other ones they sell.

People like Charles grow those things in "Dirt!" Ted. Some even put cow poop on the dirt.
Not only do they get poop, and lots of it from cows, rumour has it that they're the ones that fill those white bottles.

Nice Photos AC, I like these shots. Got a couple of mine framed in the kitchen for "flavour." You should try yours.
