  1. Beautiful shots! I like how you can clearly tell how hot it is, by the sweat-stained t-shirt of the watermelon vendor.

    Hope you're having lots of fun!

  3. I'm writing a middle-grade story set partially in imaginary Cyprus/Turkey/Greece, so these photos are invaluable!

    The poor bairn looks flushed and absolutely limp. We'll have to get him a big Indiana Jones hat.

  8. Nice! I was just absentmindedly scrolling through in my blog reader and I thought, "Wait a minute, they have watermelons at the farmer's market in Scotland?" Have fun!

  14. Oh wow, look at all of that wonderful produce! Im certainly jealous; there are no markets of that caliber near me. I'm sure you found some lovely foods to bring home with you

  15. Farmers markets are on of my favorite things to do. I buy so much there. This past week I bought 3 pecks (roughly 12 pounds) of peppers to freeze for winter use.

  16. What I wouldn't give for a market like that. Very impressive. Love the shot of the man with the melons. How far of a distance is that from your house?

  17. I wish I could go there and market for the ingredients I can use in canning salsa. The tomatoes look so fresh!
