It's easy for me to forget about farmers markets this time of year since I'm not really gardening anymore. But this is such a great time to pick up produce -- and flowers! Markets still have lots of great produce, and there's no better place to buy squash, pumpkins, apples, and apple cider.
My friend bought her family a package of these doughnuts. I was super jealous as I had already run out of cash and just let my mouth water as I took pictures.
This is a fall farmers market: tomatoes and pumpkins!
I bought a cup of cider to sip as I walked around and also bought a butternut squash and leeks to make golden winter soup. The rest of my $10 went to a few cucumbers to make my favorite juice and some delicious lettuce that's been the main ingredient in some great salads I've had this week.
Here's a view of the river that runs along side the farmers market. Check out those changing leaves! And below is the bridge we walked across - complete with a passing train!
Do you have a favorite farmers market?
