California Grown


 

The farmers markets in San Francisco are a fabulous part of living in the city. I love going every week to shop the fresh, local produce.

It is truly a feast- for both my lens and my table.

  1. the picture of cabbage is simply great!

  2. I hope we’ll find some of these great seasonal items on the menu tonight!

  3. I’m glad I just had dinner otherwise these wonderful shots would have made me so hungry. The 1st one is just gorgeous, the lighting and soft texture is wonderful.

  4. Beautiful pictures!! I am munching on some fresh cherries now and have some nappa cabbage in the fridge! 😀

  5. Is there a site where you can find the location and times of the markets? I’d like to visit one when in SF in mid-September.

    • Hi Bunty, There probably is–haven’t used it, however, two great markets to look up are Saturday at the Ferry Building and Sunday at Fort Mason. The Ferry Building is the famous one- a gorgeous historic renovation on the Embarcadero by the Bay Bridge. If you’d like, give me a shout when you’re in town.

  6. These photos are a celebration of the beauty and allure of each subject- powerful simplicity with texture and color exploding off the pages! Produce has never looked better, anywhere !

  7. Jane, what a marvelous set of fresh flowers and vegetables. I especially like your composition on the first three. Oh, and that Alice Waters’ quote.

  8. When’s lunch!? Yum.

  9. You certainly captured the brilliance of these foods….good enough to eat right off my screen….YUM!!

  10. Beautiful photos of beautiful produce! Great Job!

  11. yum it is the best!!!!

  12. Who knew cabbage could be so … intriguing. So happy you’re enjoying your surroundings – and sharing.

  13. Luscious post Jane – you are the master of foodology😉

  15. I love how the camera enables the photographer to see the “ordinary” as strikingly “extraordinary!” Suzie

  16. Mouth watering shots!
