Day 53: Farmer's Market

Fresh, local grown Southern produce looks and tastes a lot better than the so called "produce" at Keyfood in Washington Heights. Everything at the Farmers Market was brightly colored and huge and perfectly shaped. We saw bright purple egg plants, tiny watermelons, huge green zucchini and perfectly round cherry tomatoes. I tasted white and yellow peaches, black berries and blue berries. Everything was really sweet and delicious. Sara also tasted apricots and tomatoes. My grandfather bought a bunch of tomatoes to make tomato sauce. We went home to eat a much more mundane meal of macaroni and cheese. Sara and my grandfather had some raspberry vanilla Dove ice cream that comes with a chocolate bar inside. I ate some small chips of the chocolate bar, but not the ice cream because I do not like Vanilla ice cream.


  1. Excuse the mixed metaphor but you're comparing apples to oranges. You can't compare a farmers market in NC to a grocery store in NY. If you want to make a comparison, compare a grocery store in NC to a grocery store in NY, or a farmers market in NY to a farmers market in NC.

  2. davka that's not a mixed metaphor at all...
