To Market To Market

Summer time not only is time for Art Markets - such as the Cherry Creek Art Market over the 4th of July but for produce Markets. I love markets and am always photoing and painting market scenes wherever I travel. Last weekend I travelled to my own backyard/neigborhood/ville - here in Denver and discovered a whole panoply of reds

The reds move from the tinted reds of the radishes to the red violets found in red onions. All but the  reds of the tomatoes are reds come to fruit in Colorado. These tomatoes have made the journey from Iowa, wait another two weeks for home grown tomato reds.

I always feel I get to know the locals when I travel to a local market. The golden forsythia I once saw in Lyon, France, the tomatoes of Solala, Guatemala, the cabbages in Vence, France, - I have painted them all and feel when I do I have a better understanding of the population who grew, sold, and bought them.

Do I see cherry jam in your future? How did the apricot batch turn out?

hi! Where are you? Back Home? It was so fun to see you. This weekend it is another batch of apricot-ginger jam. I made a cherry clafoutis with the cherries.

Eugenie Torgerson said...

And clafoutis is what exactly? I've never ordered it because it sounds sort of like clotted cream, an idea that does not appeal to me.

Carole Buschmann said...

Clafoutis is french version of cobbler maybe. Pretty yummy.

Eugenie Torgerson said...

Tell us how to make it.

Sounds like a good idea for a future/soon post!
