Vivid colors on a gorgeous sunny day characterize the Summer Santa Barbara Farmers Market. Garden of Eden Farms have some of the tastiest and most colorful lettuce varieties.
White Kadota figs are just starting to appear. These are one of my favorite summer fruits. Growing up in Beirut, Lebanon, there was a fig tree in our garden, and I loved climbing it for dessert. Ron and I like them with a slice of prosciutto, as an appetizer.
All types of peppers in rainbow colors are showing up. These small peppers are sweet peppers, even though they look ominous like their hot cousins.
Purple peppers are nicely contrasted with their green cousins.
Here is another arrangement of peppers by the talented crew at Peacock Farms.
And one of the flower vendors had these lovely lisianthus flowers in the deepest of purple shades!
