The season has begun

There is a new farmer’s market in town. It’s deep in the downtown area, near the civic center. A couple of growers who don’t usually participate locally are there. These are growers who take their produce to San Francisco and Los Angeles where they get top dollar. People in Fresno are reluctant (cheap) to pay the prices these growers can charge and get in the bigger markets. The quality of their fruit is amazing and it’s organic.

This is today’s haul. The blueberries are just beginning and they are amazing. It will be a short season, though, because we’ve had some really hot days already. Today is cool and breezy. I felt like I was in San Francisco at the Ferry Building while buying these.

  1. yum! and I’m hearing how good blueberries are for memory.

  2. That looks delicious. Is that basil? :-)

  3. I would love to try those cherries! We’re missing the season in Italy and hoping our family will harvest and enjoy the fruit from our Italian garden just now.
