Farmer’s market

I recently went with my wife to the farmer’s market located behind Weberstown Mall in the parking lot of the former Circuit City.

Farmer's market behind Weberstown Mall on a recent Sunday.

There was a variety of fruit and vegetables.

Eggplants was one of the vegetables available at the farmer's market.

I came across this vegetable called bitter melon, which I was totally unfamiliar with.

A bunch of bitter melons.

 

Bitter melon looks like a warped cucumber or mutant pepper.

The sales person said some may eat them now but they were too bitter for her tastes and would be better later in the season.

Potatoes

So we browsed, and we bought.

These dark red cherries were delicious.

The farmer’s market is regular stop on my household’s shopping schedule.
