This time of year is my favorite time for farmer's markets in Portland. There are still plenty of yummy summer goodies, like berries and peppers, (and corn on the cob has arrived!) but there are also all of the cooler weather delights that I have missed since spring... potatoes, greens, leeks, apples and pears. The variety of colors is amazing, and to me, it is the most delicious time of year.
This morning was a perfect end-of-summer morning, with blue skies and still-warm weather... just perfect for a trip to the market.
