Amazing, beautiful lettuces at today’s farmer’s market.  Apparently there is a bumper crop this year.  Everything around here is flowering to beat the band.  The mountain laurels are just about to pop and the lady slippers are all around us in the the woods.

Potato Leek Soup

Nice farmer’s market today.  Looks like a potato leek soup is in the offing. / The almond croissants at Amherst Coffee are amazing.

Farmers’ Market

This is white ginger.  It usually shows up at this time of the year at the Amherst farmers’ market and is quite lovely.  We usually buy some to put in the freezer.

I was taken by the produce at Old Friends Farm stand this morning.  Everything looked great in the soft morning light.

Autumn farmers’ markets are the best.

I’ve no idea what these little white pods are, but they look nice next to the tomatoes.

And a question for all you grammarians out there.  When I was writing the title of this post I assumed that the apostrophe in farmers would go after the “r”, but when I did an internet search, many sites had it after the “s”.  Any clarification on which is correct?
