Lately, I’ve really started loving taking pictures of gorgeous produce at my local farmer’s market in union square and I also noticed that you guys ( on instagram ) are really digging it! My fruit pictures get even more “likes” than some of the more challenging meal creations I’ll post and I love it! It’s so nice to be in awe of nature’s beauty. We live in a culture where you can walk around the block and see a giant picture of a bacon cheeseburger that’s been photoshopped and painted with shellac to perfection specifically to make YOU crave it.
Well why not do that with the GOOD stuff?!
Actually it’s infinitely easier to do it with nature’s bounty because there’s no photoshopping or shellacking needed. These are pure uncut, unedited, rough shots I snapped while walking through the farmer’s market this morning. Sit back, relax and enjoy some of my favorite #produceporn from this week! Let it inspire you to add some fresh, organic finds to your meals this upcoming weekend. Summer is almost over and you should take advantage of whatever is in season in your part of the world. These are all from NYC, of course.
If you would like to see this become a weekly post on GoSweetandSkinny please comment below and let me know you enjoy it! Also, tag me on instagram with @gosweetandskinny and #produceporn so that I can see all your glorious farmer’s market pics too.
Have a great weekend!
Organic blueberries and currants! oh my!
these cranberry beans are just so incredibly beautiful, I couldn’t resist.
All sorts of sizes, shapes and colors, heirloom tomatoes are gorgeous.
I found these “husk cherries” so wild and whimsical.
A fiesta of little mini bell peppers! I can’t even..
Okra, you purrrrty!
Figured we would end on a sweet note. You can see how SWEET these little strawberries are!
Hope that you’ve got your appetite raring and ready to head to your local farmer’s market for some local, organic produce for dinner tonight. I know mine sure is.
