Vegetable Market: Week 7

IMG 6394  Version 2

As I write this, many of you are wondering what to do with the last weekend of summer. You are probably trying to forget the tasks and responsibilities of the juggernaut that we call Fall. Even though here in Greece this is not a long weekend, I too am faced with this dilemma. After a much needed escape from the city, I am back in my neighbourhood and ready for what life has to hold…. Well OK, sort of. The first thing that greeted me with a bang (literally) was a torched car lass than a block from my flat. You gotta love the burnt tire/plastic smell that seems to permeate everything. The market, almost revived from the doldrums of August, seemed to have a life of its own. The late summer, like spring, presents a great crossover of fruit and vegetables. Peaches, watermelons, tomatoes at their prime, figs, and of course the start of the fall squashes… A cornucopia of choice, a very different market from two weeks ago.
