I love buying fresh fruits, vegetables and flowers directly from the farmers. I love hanging out at farmer’s markets and listening to music. I love looking at all the vivid colors, shapes and textures of the produce. And, let’s be real — I love satisfying my uncontrollable need to accept (and devour) any and all fruity taste-tests!
Farmer’s markets are awesome.
And now, after my Commercial Shoot at North Berkeley’s farmer’s market, I was able to talk with some of the farmers and watch them work. And wow — they are not only incredibly hardworking, but also, they are some of the nicest, most genuine people I’ve ever met.
I am so grateful to be reminded of how farmers are the HEART of America!
I am also delighted I had the opportunity to take photographs for a great organization, Ecology Center, and an amazing program, Market Match. Eating healthy can sometimes be a challenge when you have a small budget and this program enables lower income families to essentially “stretch their dollar”, so they can buy fresh and delicious produce at farmer’s markets!
This Commercial Shoot was a dream come true in so many ways: the visual beauty of nature, the people, the program. Love it all.
