I give in !! What are those yellow Cucumbers with a green hat (below the Tomato's) ? Never seen them in the UK before !!

GarryRF -- They are one of a hundred varieties of squash. I believe you guys on the Isles like to call everything of this type "pumpkin". Excellent in stir fry, in a pasta sauce, or grilled with olive oil and pepper.

I've seen different "squash" varieties - never this one locally. Pumpkins have always been the Hallowe'en type. But - I'll learn ! I've always loved Home Made Cranberry Sauce in the UK. Made with American Cranberries. Never seen them from anywhere else. My amazement at a US Thanksgiving dinner to see so much home made produce. But Cranberry Sauce from a can ! Oh what sacrilege !

Gorgeous pictures, thanks! I think I'm doing well to be able to identify about 2/3 of what I see (thanks to Chinatown markets here), but it all looks wonderful (except the hotter peppers).

First visit to Bondi Beach in Sydney they had a stall at the side of the road. "Freshly Made Smoothies" The fruit was uncut and drinks were made to order. The display looked so amazing -but what were they all ! Even when someone tells you its Starfruit - you've no idea what it tastes like. So I had the best smoothie - ever. Fresh sliced Pineapple and Root Ginger. With extra Ginger. Nothing else added. Heaven in a glass ! Been to so many countries since that insist you have to have Yoghurt or...

Good one, Port Morseby. Markets are always fascinating places to visit and this one looks exceptional. Very colourful people as well as the wares they sell and your pictures certainly tell a story.

You can always get me with a market, but this one was especially interesting because of the display of canned goods. Living in a neighborhood with many Caribbean, Asian and South Asian neighbors, I see some of those brands and products in our local fruit stands and small groceries. Truly "world food!"

What an extravaganza of colours ! That's the type of market I love. All the fresh produce in front of the counter so you can select your own choice. When I'm on the road touring I have to be reminded that I cant cook all those delicious vegetables. There's a few there I couldn't name - never seen them before ! Wonderful display !

Thanks for reminding me of my time in Boulder. The city's been such a pioneer in healthy foods for years .

Re: Gallery: Boulder County Farmers Market, Colorado

I love markets...and the history they embody, from those like Basel that have been in the same place for hundreds of years to the 19th century enclosed markets that many cities developed (and some kept!) but I have an especially good feeling about markets like this one, and our New York Greenmarkets that have revived the market tradition in places where it was nearly gone, and made a success of it. What a long sentence!

When I bought this computer it had 16 Million colours. Who would use that many ? Well congratulations DrF !! I think you just did. An extravaganza of colour and diversity. Even the photos are fattening !! You've excelled yourself again DrF. You certainly have an eye for the finer things in life !!

Thank you for your kind words, Garry! Besides the good food and their freshness, I love markets for all their colors and smells, and for the hustle and bustle of the crowd. It's the stuff good travels are made of!

That sounds absolutely gorgeous ! Love finding foods I've never tried. Nothing better than a bacon sandwich, toasted and some HP on the side. One thing you never get when you travel - decent bacon. No - Turkey is not the same ! And some Vintage Canadian Cheddar. Hmmm....

The "Peameal bacon" sandwich has received a lot of attention on a number of the Food Channel shows. If you like the taste of bacon, you'll certainly love the sandwich. The cornmeal on it has a minor impact on its taste.

Re: Ottawa – NOT the coldest Capital in the world!

Nice article, but have to point out that the "Capitol" is a building in Washington DC while Ottawa (and Washington DC itself for that matter) are the "capitals" of their countries. One letter, but very different meanings.

Re: Eating our way through Istanbul (Part 2)

PHeymont ·
Of course we tried the baklava...several places, several flavors and more... Which gives me a moment to mention something I forgot in the blog...chicken-breast pudding, or tavuk göğsü. On Wednesday, Katerina mentioned it, and joked that people make faces when they hear about it. Didn't sound so odd to me. On Friday, Senem brought one to the table so we could try it...and it basically was a protein-enriched blanc mange. The chicken is boiled and separated into fine fibers and mixed with milk,...

Re: Eating our way through Istanbul (Part 2)

That was an amazing tour of gastronomic delights Paul. It takes some courage to indulge in something we don't recognise. But on a tour designed for tourists you know you'll be safe. So now you've acquired a taste for fish lets hope you continue indulging. You must have tried the Baklava ? Makes searching out a Turkish bakery worthwhile. And all that variety in winter too. My friends are in Turkey today and they're still waiting for spring to arrive !

Wonderful pics. Is this the market on the former military base? That was one of our favorite reasons to drive into Calgary when we were in Canmore! The was a wonderful pit shop in the food court - best savory pies around!
Comment

Re: Calgary Farmers' Market

DrFumblefinger ·
Thanks for your comments, Lester and Jonathan. There are several Farmers Markets in Calgary because it is a fairly large city (well over a million people). This featured market is the one on Blackfoot Trail, close to 77th. There is a market more on the western end of town which would be closer to Canmore. And both have those great savory pies, which are delicious

Hey, I love apples and the ones on this post look amazing. I recently did a post on the Oak Glen Apple Harvest in California. Have you ever been? I haven't, but have had friends bring me back some. They were wonderful. Glad you had a nice time at the market. Thanks for sharing.

Re: A Fall Visit to Krakow's Hala Targowa Market

Hi Samantha! The apples were a highlight of the market and we enjoyed them! Very sweet and juicy. I've heard of the Oak Glen Apple festival but never visited it. I regret I didn't. But I lived in Washington state for 8 years and as you know, apples are a big deal. There are a number of harvest festivals in that state featuring apples.

Years ago, I went to that market and the thing I remember about it was how packed the streets were.

Re: La Vucciria Market, Palermo

Can't help wondering at the similarity of the name, allowing for common letter/phoneme substitutes, to La Bouqueria Market in Barcelona. There's not a lot of agreement on where that name came from, by the way, but the best-sounding bet is that it comes from Catalan 'boc' for goat.

Not as touristed or busy as the La Boqueria market, Santa Caterina is a great place to watch Spanish people go about their shopping and eating.
