My readers asked about my Farmers’ Market photographs from international locations, so I looked up a few to share with you. I enjoy seeing the locals going about their everyday lives as well as the beauty of the food on display. Here are a few scenes from Vietnam and Thailand, shot in 2008.
Here is a scene from an ancient rural village, Hoi An, Vietnam.
In Bangkok, Thailand, vendors display their wares on boats in the canals.
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?
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.
