magic in the moment

Friday Farmer's Market in Toronto

There's often a touch of magic in the air at a farmers' market ... the heady smell of onions and ripe fruit; the bright, exotic colours of flowers and vegetables; a chorus of shouts to tempt shoppers, "Try it! Guaranteed you'll be back for more!"

So this is my Friday morning escape, every week from June to October. Today I hauled home fresh corn (peaches and cream, first of the season), dew-spangled broccoli and a fragrant red onion from the booth in the photo, and for a special weekend treat, a pint of wild Ontario blueberries. Mmmmm.

Mmmmmmmmm! Turns out the blueberries (while delish) weren't the true market 'treat' at all. It's the corn, the CORN! So sweet, juicy and tender...melt in your mouth and good! Yum. :-)
