Farmers’ Market

Last Saturday I discovered the Farmers’ Market in Union Square, New York City. As my family walked ahead of me, I lingered, taking photos. For me, it was a feast for the eyes, and the highlight of my day.

I love to photograph farmers’ markets in cities all over the world — from Hoi An, Vietnam to Yichang, China. Who knew that our own mega metropolis New York would present itself with such artistry?

Eggplant share their color and texture. The stems catch my eye.

A square crop seems to complement this collection of irregular spheres. Ripening in the sun, these tomatoes are warm, not long off the vine.

 

For the New Yorkers buying this week’s fresh vegetables and flowers, Union Square on Saturday morning was a pleasurable outdoor grocery shopping experience. For me it was even more.
