Farmers Market Snaps

GR&DF yesterday was my weekly visit to the Civic Center Farmers Market and I got a bunch of snaps to share -

Walking over there I pass the Orpheum Theatre and I always take a moment to admire this great old building - built in 1926 it is a grand old space.


This is a snap pf the ceiling on the outside space you walk through to go inside.


I usually start at the Market Street end and work my way towards City Hall - looking past the tents of things I was amazed to see.....



...the UN Fountain working - this fountain is more often not going than going - and yesterday in the bright cool sunshine it was splashing and shooting merrily along. If you go HERE you can read a bunch of stuff about the Civic Center/Tenderloin Area.


.. and the flower guy had some beautiful flowers....


... there was just piles of corn - it seems almost like a bumper crop this year!!


... I picked up some of these lovely tomatoes and cukes.....


... these where just calling out for a snap- the mix of yellow and green was striking..


.. and at the other end a flower guy there had some great sunflowers...


... how could I pass this pile of red peppers without getting a snap!!

I also picked up some string beans, ginger root, lemons, Brussels sprouts and some okra. Tonight will be a fried chicken and veg dinner!! Totally a summer menu from my childhood!!

That's about it for today - stop by tomorrow for some snaps of our 24th Street stop on the way home yesterday.

Thanks again for stopping by - do come again!!

Take care,
edgar

Those red peppers are so pretty! I love fresh red pepper. If I lived near by, I'd accidently on purpose stop by about dinner time to get some fried chicken and okra!

I am so jealous! I live no where near a wonderful farmers market like yours.

You have been blessed with such an eye for getting just the right photo's. Your combination of colors are awesome. I just love it when you share your city shots with us. Right now, we're sweltering here in Florida. About the only pic I could post of our local views would be the vapors rising off the pavement. :( Again thanks,for always taking us along on your journeys!
