Mercato Moment: Red's in Season

One of the best things about a farmer's market is the way you can actually tell the seasons are changing. You see the different fruits and vegetables come and go as they are supposed to, and you can find yourself feeling more in tune with the time of year.

Today I noticed how pomegranates have made their appearance in many of the local booths, and I also couldn't help but notice how beautiful they are for this time of year. The red color is perfect for the holidays.

Fresh or dried pomegranates can look festive in a decorative bowl around the house!

Not sure what makes these pomegranates sweeter than normal, but I'd like to find out...

These fall beauties are certified organic if that is your priority.

And you can even find pomegranate inspired products at the mercato right now! But get there early for the pom juice, it was sold out...

Next time you're at a farmer's market, keep your eye for persimmons too, as they go in and out of season in the blink of an eye!
