It's Saturday morning and I'm missing the summer farmer's market. Missoula's market scene has grown since I moved here, enough to accommodate two exceptional markets. When in season, a Saturday bike trip downtown offers fresh local fruits, vegetables, plants, cut flowers, meat, dairy and specialty prepared foods like cannoli and empanadas. I'm so glad the apples last well after the market is done for the season. The stock is getting low, though. I ate the last of the Pink Ladies in this photo a few weeks ago. Almost unassuming little baubles when whole but after slicing, they are real gems. Now I am on to finishing the Liberties.
