To Market, To Market

Sunday’s farmers’ market included more riches for all the senses and stimulus for the imagination:

  • woolen slippers in muted (mulled) colors
  • kittens for adoption finding their children
  • porchetta sandwiches charred on a grill
  • an orange zest scone wrapped in paper
  • tender lettuces bundled into a wooden crate
  • the year’s last tomatoes and seedy peppers
  • little tart apples, some gnarled in interesting ways
  • olallieberry jam to stir into oatmeal
  • wild sole to pan fry for tomorrow night’s supper
  • mole negro tamales from the Oaxacan Kitchen
  • the smell of curry, and of spit-roasting chickens
  • chocolates, olive oils, cheeses
  • the art supply store, brushes and easels
