End of summer at the Saint Paul farmers market

(Last Updated On: October 17, 2018)

To visit to the Saint Paul farmer’s market a couple of weeks ago was to see the end of summer laid out before you. Oh sure, there were still lots of mid-summer vegetables, but the fall vegetables (garlic, brussels sprouts, cruciferous vegetables of all colors and types) were starting to appear while the vegetables of July (most notably green beans and peas) were nowhere to be found.

Of course, there are always a few ready-to-eat treats at the market.

These too reflected the changing season, as a snack of fresh sweet corn will soon disappear from the market while more types of apples become available.

Of course, there were also a few treats for the non-humans in the crowd.

While doggie treats may continue to be available throughout the fall, there are big changes coming in the variety of flowers available as the lilies, daisies, and dahlias of summer are replaced by sunflowers, mums, and asters.

Wow. What colour. The flowers are just gorgeous and I loved all the people shots, especially the expression you captured on the little girl’s face in the 2nd photo. I really enjoyed all of the photos. Together they tell the story.

I can’t get over the colors of those fruits and flowers. Everything looks gorgeous! I can’t wait for fall vegetables too. I am thinking about all the delicious side dishes I will be enjoying soon. Thanks for joining this week’s #TravelPhotoThursday.

I’ve never been a fan of farmer’s markets until recently. It used to bore me to death when I was younger but now, whenever I go to a certain place with a market going on I’m there. I think the age shows huh? :p
Lovely photos.

Mouthwatering and colorful shots!!!
Please come join us at this week’s Wordless Wednesday (on Tuesday):

Love all of the color, here. It also looks like a great place to spend a few hours. I would love to have some of those gorgeous veggies and a North American apple. Thanks for linking up this week. #TPThursday
