  1. All are beautifully captured, incredible!!

  2. Beautiful! Loved those colors and textures 🙂

  3. Just got back from Budapest, Jane. Why is it fruit and veg looks so much tastier than some of the offerings we get here in the UK/ Not that you can really answer that. Amazing photo’s and so much colour, love them

    • Hi Mike, Budapest is a wonderful city. And why does produce look so much better in a farmers’ market? It always reminds me that we eat with our eyes first. Happy you enjoyed them, thanks very much.

  4. So good to be back and to catch up on all your wonderful photos that I’ve missed Jane. All stunning as always and your “muse” is the perfect subject as she is there for you night and day and whatever the weather 🙂

  5. Yes, I’d go for all this, it lookswonderful.
    Lovely captures, Jane, you have given us an appetite for real. 🙂

  6. Cool variety of colors, before they fade.

  7. Beautifully photographed Jane. You make it all look so enticing.

  8. Amazing photography Jane, such vibrant colours. I’m pleased to be back in blogland and visiting my blogging buddies again.

  9. Yum. Sadly, most of outdoor farmers’ markets are closed for the season. We certainly aren’t getting peaches and apricots. The purple artichokes are lovely.

  10. An orange colored beet, very different. And, such a variety.

  11. Absolutely luscious! I realize now how hungry I am for real food… I need to stop eating the Halloween candy!

  12. This is an extremely risky post for Cattle farmers – you are going to turn everybody into vegetarians! However i think an Artichoke is a better model than a food. Almost like my brain – it is very photogenic; I would prefer it to be photographic. I have learned a new word hopefully my beautiful brain will remember it: pluot, a plum will never be the same same again, have to leaf now Beauty I am a beet

  13. Beautiful Photos, Jane! Love the colours and shapes!

  14. Gorgeous shots! The colors are beautiful

  15. Lovely photos! Great colours, all very appetising; time to get dinner ready!

  16. Beautiful set of images. I have always admired fruit and vegetable still-life images … paintings or photographs and these are certainly worthy of admiration!

  17. Wonderful images of some very impressive produce Jane. I just love the colour!

  18. Salivatingly beautiful…..vibrantly hungering for all these flavors so beautifully photographed!

  19. Absolutely gorgeous gallery Jane! The baby blues stand out for me.

  20. Essence of fall harvest….I don’t know if Ive seen a better photo of tomatoes than that first one, the colors are so beautifully conveyed. The beet has a wonderful intimacy…the artichokes, who could resist them? I like what your choice of focus did with the apples, they’re lively, going in and out of focus. The pluots – just perfect – I love that flat presentation, where it’s all reduced to color and shape. It’s always a pleasure wandering SF with you, Jane!

  21. 🙂 This looks soooo delicious, it makes me hungry!
    Have a very HAPPY Sunday! 🙂

  22. Exquisite photos as always Jane. Makes me hungry looking at the beautiful produce! 🙂

  23. You’ve done such a beautiful job with this series, Jane.
    Each one is just wonderful.

  24. You make that fruit look so delectable!

  25. beauty and abundance…these all look delicious Jane! enjoy smiles hedy 😀

  26. These photos are so tempting! Your macro photography is fabulous.

  27. Gosh, I’m salivating! 😉
    My favorite shot is the peaches in green square baskets– contrasting colors, shapes, organic and inorganic. A lot in one place. 🙂

    • Thank you, Eliza. Oh, I’m glad you like that one– I love the repeating patterns in the market displays. Such fun to photograph. Appreciate your visit– hope you ran off to make a salad. 🙂

  28. Incredibly beautiful photos! I love everyone of them. k

  29. I love fresh fruit and Farmer’s Markets.

  30. Hi jane, wonderful idea with the vegetables and fruits from the farmers market.

  31. Markets are such fabulous places for photography (and eating). Just love this post.

  32. As always great photos Jane, but this week I especially liked your titles 🙂

  33. Well, since I can’t stroll through San Francisco’s beautiful farmers markets, the next best thing is seeing your mouthwatering photos of them.

  34. Gorgeous pics, especially the heirloom tomatoes. (Which I thought were squashes before squinting a bit!)

  35. spectacular shots…YUM….love the colors & detail 👍

  36. The lighting on the heirloom tomatoes is stunning, Jane. Great photos all around in this post.

  37. You always catch the spirit of whatever you photograph, lovely work.

  38. That is an amazing market and you captured it so remarkably well. As others have stated, your photographs make me feel like I am among the fruits and veggies. Superbly choreographed, too.

  39. Each of these photos is a masterpiece!

  40. Wonderfully delectable images Jane 😀 I’ll take 2 pounds of Rainier Cherries, a quart of Blueberries and some ripe Apricots !

  41. I have taken a little nibble out of each delicious offering..impossible to resist their allure.

  42. What a sweet, sweet post, Jane. Makes me want to pop down by a local farmer’s market and see what produce they have got. Amazing shots, and all of the fruits and tomato look so fresh. Very vivid colours and it feels like they are right in front of me. Also love the capsicum shot on your other farmer’s market page. Didn’t know purple ones existed 😀

  43. Jane, these are just such a delicious images!

  44. Oh my! You have me drooling! 😀

Love to hear what you think...
