Peaches, Okra, and Red Eggplant

I've been loving the Alexandria Farmer's Market this summer. On the two occasions I've gotten up early enough to get there. It starts at 6 and ends by 10. But let's face it 10 is just way to early for me to be expected to be out of the house on a Saturday morning.

Look at these amazing yummy peaches! My favorite summer food.

I loved the presentation of these yellow squash and okra. I didn't buy the okra though, I'm just not that Southern yet. It's so slimy!
Tubers of all kinds! Have you ever seen a red eggplant? That's what the sign claims those red items are in the center of the photo... but I'm suspicious.
