Tomato heaven! There are beautiful heirloom tomatoes all around the market today. I picked up an Aunt Ruby and a couple of others at various stands and saw beauties at Eckerton, Stokes, Keith, Cherry Lane, Oak Grove, Bodhitree, and others.

Rogowski snow peas
Mountain Sweet Berry, Cherry Lane, Berried Treasures, and others have gorgeous sauce tomatoes, too. It was hard to resist filling a whole shopping cart today!
S&SO artichokes and tomatillos
It's actually peak season for tomatoes, peaches, corn, squashes of all sorts, and a wide variety of hot and sweet peppers are coming into peak.  I picked up some Anaheims at Oak Grove, along with a couple of tomatoes, and have a beautiful bowlful of knockout tomatoes and peppers to admire before I dig in.  Don't miss the lovely shelling beans and string beans at Berried Treasures and the sucrine lettuces both green and red at Mountain Sweet Berry. Both of those also have sweet Tri-Star strawberries and wild blueberries, and Berried Treasures has rhubarb!
Eckerton's heirloom tomatoes
Paffenroth has multicolored choices of carrots, tasty beets, and unusual greens like purslane, tiny baby fennel, and huge bunches of cut herbs.  There are many stands with berries and currants, including Locust Grove, Fantasy Fruit, Phillips, Hodgsons, and others.
Garden of Eden mushrooms
Sycamore has their usual great corn and tomatoes and has brought in a new product -- zucchini bread -- which I had for breakfast and was delicious.
Berried Treasures beans
Stokes lima beans
