Covering the farm market...

I don't know what it is about farm markets, but sometimes they can be difficult. It's just a marketplace. Just people selling things.

When you're really into the local/organic-produce-thing on a personal level, it's even harder. A great farm market is not necessarily a photogenic farm market. Athens, Ohio has a great farmer's market. But I don't find it to be photogenic at all.

Appleton's farm market is really more than decent, both in respects to buyer experience and photogenicity (oh yeah, I made that word up!). Look below and tell me those aren't the most perfect looking strawberries you've ever seen in your life...
