changing of the guard

Click through to see my plans for the week’s produce.

Despite the evidence of this haul, summer is clearly on its way out and autumn on its way in at the Noe Valley farmers’ market. Apples and grapes have appeared. The blueberries, blushing an unripe pink, sit under a sign announcing that it’s their last week. The stone fruits are underripe, too, and I overhear one clerk I see often telling another, apparently new, that people like them “suavecito” (soft), even though buying ones that are “un poquito duro” (a little hard) right now will ensure “una mesa llena” (a full table) throughout the week.
