Farmers Market Saturdays


This weekend, the farmers market was hosting a "Harvest Moon Fundraiser" for the local soup kitchen - and serving homemade squash soup and bread - yum!

I managed to come home with quite a haul this time, including these heirloom tomatoes for the bruschetta I'm making for the girlfriend's gathering tonight.







I can't believe that there are only two more farmers markets left for the season. Some of the vendors have packed it in early this year, like the lady that makes my favourite lavender shortbread. But there are still plenty of veggies to be had and some gorgeous Autumn flowers, so there is still every reason to stop by the market!

I love the photo of your tomatoes- so colorful, plump & juicy looking! I hope they tasted as good as they look :)

This summer, as miserably hot as it was, went so quickly, didn't it?
Would love to have your recipe for brushetta.

I'm so conflicted! The tomatoes look so fresh and wonderful, I want a summer tomato sandwich.
But the thought of velvety squash soup makes me want to cozy up in a blanket ;}

I love the picture of the heirloom tomatoes! They are one of my hobbies...I usually grow a dozen or more varieties of them each spring.
