Shopping at the Berkeley Farmers' Market

For Harmonia's Midweek shopping list:

What the chocolate lady is contributing this week:

many wonderful kinds of salad greens,

Asparagus fatter than my thumb (we are a tad past the peak of the season out in California, but these were still so succulent),

wonderfully dense-fleshed artichokes,

and these adorable little baby cauliflowers. They were so delicious. We just steamed them and drizzled them with a little vinaigrette. They are even smaller than you can tell from this picture; the lovely young lady who agreed to pose with a cauliflower had very tiny hands. Thank you, greenmarket Cinderella.

I also got a bunch of leeks and some peaches, but could not make good pictures of them.

Visit the ARF-roundup at Sweetnicks.

I've never seen baby cauliflower before. They look so cute.

Awesome pics!!! I haven't seen baby cauli yet either! Very cute! Any taste difference?

I've seen brocoliflower which is a cross of brocolli and cauliflower...haven't tried it yet though.
