I’ve already mentioned, that one of the things I really love about our town is the farmer’s market. Since we moved here, Jon and I have spent almost every Saturday morning shopping at the farmer’s market. The local organic produce is plentiful and gorgeous.
I figured you wouldn’t mind if I shared a plethora of photos from the market. It’s a daily presence in the town square (but has the most venders on Saturdays). I love strolling through the booths and I take far longer than necessary to pick out the produce I want to buy.
These pictures are a bit different from the ones I shared from Portland’s farmer’s market. The produce available in Wisconsin in October is very different from the produce available in Portland, ME in July. I love all of the different pumpkins that are available, especially the bluish-green ones.
There’s one stand that I stop at every week. This baker brings his wonderful French baked goods, all the way up from Madison (It’s a two-hour drive!). His breads are amazing, but I’ve made it a habit to eat a chocolate croissant every Saturday. They are divine!
One of the most challenging things for me is taking photos of people or in the presence of a bunch of people. I’m trying to break out of my shell a bit and take more photos in public places, as well as more photos of people. I really love candid portraits. I was pretty happy with the ones I got at the market this day.
The only being who knew I was photographing her, was the beauty below. Her name is Mable. We met at the farmers market, and I fell in love immediately. She is quite the ham about having her photograph taken. I was happy to oblige. I really miss Tex, so when I encounter a friendly dog in public, I make sure to get some love.
Sorry for the photo and text heavy post! I’m a little bit in love with the farmers market. I’ll be a very sad girl when it ends for the winter. What produce is in season in your area right now? Happy Monday!
