Scenes from the Market, Independence Day Weekend

While Robb and I shopped, I annoyed all the vendors and jammed my camera into their produce. Ah, summer!

Red White and Blueberries!
(They've developed varieties of blueberries that grow in California.)

Some Lovely Salad Greens


Tomatoes on the Vine

I got chatting with the coffee roaster guys. This is a portable "field roaster" that they use at the market, but that would really be used in the fields of a coffee plantation to test the quality of the crops. You can see Robb sitting on a wall in the background and holding his coffee.

This is unhulled, raw coffee

And the roasted beans...

What Robb and I call a "California Moment." This is a fruit smoothie stand run by some religious order. I had never seen a clerical tank top until today.

Awesome pictures, as always!
I could smell those coffee beans.

Oh wow, I am so jealous. What beautiful looking produce!! And a tank top with a collar - that's a new one for me too.

Do blueberries not naturally grow in California? I thought everything grew in California! It's just about blueberry-picking time here in GA... your pics make me anxious to go!

I don't honestly think I ever saw raw, unhulled coffee before! Now I have to head to our little dinky've made me crave all things fresh from the earth~

They're found/developed varieties of blueberries that grow in California. (I think this is a fairly recent development...)

The market is really lovely....the bread, the cheeses, the people (they're tasty of course)!

I think I've seen a top like that in movies. The priests had them on. I dunno maybe I'm thinking of something else.

Does the coffee roaster custom roast?


Lisa and Robb said...

Yup...all the coffee they sell at the market is roasted on the spot.

I think that the woman making the Forbidden Fruit Smoothies (my name) looks like Trinity in the Matrix movies.

You have such a wonderful eye to capture such simple images yet make them so remarkable. I always enjoy your photographs.
