Late summer produce

Yesterday, on our way to the beach, we made a stop at the Beaverton Farmer’s Market for a few supplies.

It’s peak season for a lot of vegetables and the tomatoes were practically glowing,

Add a little garlic, and I could almost taste the salsa!

As if I needed more temptation, artichokes are also in season.  The Globe (top) and Italian (bottom) varieties are both available.

Beans are ripening now, too.  These are cranberry beans, and even though I didn’t get them this week, they are on my list for the next time I get to the market.

I can only imagine how great they will taste, probably poached and served on top of one of S’s delectable crab cakes.
