A nice little break from packing, moving or marketing a book ... this morning we went down to the Santa Fe Farmer's Market, which is now located at the new Railyard Park that was built around the the old Santa Fe train station.
The market is a smorgasbord of sensory delights. Today the spicy, woodsy smell of roasting chiles saturated the air. The abundant offerings of fruit and vegetables reflected the colors of early fall: bold red and yellow tomatoes; orangey pumpkins; deep purple eggplants and shiny red, yellow and green peppers.
The Farmer's Market always reminds me that so much that is beautiful in the world is Mother Nature's freely given gift. Here are some photos that I took today - some of the beautiful flowers, fruits and vegetables, and a few examples of what we call "Santa Fe Style," - the very individualistic and rather eccentric way that Santa Feans like to dress.
