Residents of Park Slope, Brooklyn, are lucky to have a Farmer's Market every Sunday afternoon, rain or shine.
At the Park Slope Farmer's Market, purveyors of locally grown veggies, poultry, fish and flowers set up stalls. There are also vendors of homemade pasta, pickles, baked goods and even chocolate.
Most of the farms and vendors are located an hour or two away, in upstate New York. For nine months out of the year, they set up stalls every Sunday outside.
Above, near-perfectly round and ripe tomatoes were arranged beside spears of asparagus. All sorts of fresh flowers were ready for planting. Mark and I strolled by, Sunday afternoon.

Feather Ridge Farm raises fresh eggs and poultry in the Hudson Valley.
Doc Pickle's booth was crowded with fans of all things pickled.
After browsing around, Mark and I felt absolutely spoiled. Next time, Sunday dinner will be planned around what we can get at the market.
