Summer bounty

It’s Farmers’ Market season in Pittsburgh; from May to November local farmers set up their tables at stands across the city and sell their bounty to their neighbors. I’m fortunate to live near one, and work near another.

The above bounty is courtesy of Edible Earth Farm and CSA, based in Tionesta. It’s certified organic, and the owners are extremely nice, and knowledgeable about their vegetables.  I came for the heirloom tomatoes and walked away with $15 of other stuff. Normally when that happens in Target (I know you all have walked in there for deodorant and walked out with a decorative lamp, seasonal serving platter or slip-n-slide as I have) I’m bummed, but the farmer’s market is one place it’s fun to overspend.

A list of citywide market locations can be found here.
