A Farmer's Market Of Photos

Sitting here watching the first snow of the Chicago winter fall outside my window (and President Elect Barack Obama on 60 Minutes), I thought this was an appropriate time to look back on the bounty of summer with a photo trip to the LA farmer's market. Thanks to Smitty for the wonderful post and pics!


Welcome to the Hollywood Farmers Market in photos! Appropriately, the market is watched over by our Scientologist overlords.



A fall favorite -- swiss chard. Chard is great when sauteed like spinach. Just "de-bone" the chard (cut out the colorful stalks), chop and sautee the stalks with some onion and garlic in olive oil. Once the stalks start to soften, add the chopped leaves and allow them to wilt. Yummy!



Sprouts!


Dragonfruit




Squash Blossoms








Kitty approves of the fresh catnip


Straight from the farm to your dinner table -- brussell sprouts, heirloom baby carrots, sweet potatoes, apples and figs (along with some olive oil and fresh rosemary) head into the oven for roasting!
