October at the Market

Beth and I made it down to the Farmer's Market this morning. It was such a perfect Fall day. The market could be summed up in two words - Squash and dahlias. How handy that they are two of my favorite things!

One new face at the market this week was sweet potatoes. I don't know what variety these were but they were covered in a beautiful purple skin.

The flower vendors were flooded with dahlias. They were the main star in every bouquet found.

But for me the day was all about Squash. Every booth had lovely piles. The most common were "Delicata", "Acorn", "Butternut" and "Buttercup". But I also found "Kabocha", "Spaghetti" and "Sweet Dumpling".

Then I spied these beauties tucked away on the ground. It doesn't get any better!
