This is a photo post, snapshots from the Riley Park Farmers Market.
Look at those beautiful purplish tomatoes in the back corner. Actually...now that I look closely I realize they looked more purple in real life...they look murkier in the photo.
I roasted some of these carrots with beets, potatoes, acorn squash, peeled garlic, yam and apple, all diced up smallish and tossed with olive oil, salt, pepper and fresh rosemary, then roasted for about an hour. They were a little brown and crusty on the edges and creamy sweet inside. Made a huge tray of it and what we didn't eat immediately I saved and tossed into salad greens with a few nuts for crunch.
I love the markets in the fall. These photos were taken a few weeks ago. We haven't seen that kind of brilliant sunlight since.
The heirloom tomato plant given to me this summer yeilded up five, (yes, you read correctly) lovely little yellow tomatoes. Thanks Leanne - if you are reading this - it may have been a small crop, but it was a tasty one.
