In New England, late summer and early fall is especially wonderful for those who enjoy the farmers' market. At this point, the limited growing season is winding down, and the local markets are bursting with their bounty. Everyone becomes a "foodie" seeing the exotic (and ordinary) fruits and vegetables in tall glorious piles.
Not only are the prices unbelievably cheap, but the variety is amazing at the location of this painting, Boston's Haymarket - an institution in Boston since 1820. It really is the ultimate Farmers' Market. "Eye candy" was the term that jumped to mind as I walked through the market, trying to drink in all this the "out of the tube" color.
