I took my camera along to the local organic produce market on Saturday Morning and even though it was raining I think I got some of the colour and variety from the stalls at the market in these photos. I have made some of the photos into a vignette, for the sake of a better perspective on the produce rather than the distractions surrounding them. Enjoy! Regards From Milli.
At the Local Produce Market 'Organic Of course.'
An early start for the stall holders
That is what some told me.
There were many who were up and loaded
Well before, half past three
The stalls are ready for the public by 7am
Come rain or hail, even wintry winds
No inclement weather, will ever stop them.
From displaying their carefully chosen produce
Fruits and flowers, spices, delicacies,
And even chocolate, to seduce
We early morning buyers
A decidedly, sweet tooth.
Vegetables and fresh home grown eggs
Our cotton bags start to overflow
Honey, nuts of all varieties and of course spices like nutmeg
As we stop for a quick chat
To friends and acquaintances and folks we know.
This week my mother has accompanied me
She wanted fresh veggies for her delicious homemade soup
And all went well as we parted company
She to the vegetable stall
And me doing my photography.
Meeting up again near a young busker
I was alarmed to see
Something hanging from mums long blue scarf
A large piece of paper attached it be.
To her scarf by a clip
And it read
"Leeks for Sale
three dollars fifty a bunch"
We were laughing so hard as I offered to take the sign back
Now here comes the crunch!
I missed the best opportunity for the funniest photo of the day
All Before Lunch.
