A fruit & veggie stand


Just north of the city, on Highway 441, there stands this fruit and veggie stand. We bought a few tomatoes. They were quite good. We've seen customers at this fruit and veggie stand every time we've driven by. We'll go back again.

Yummmy! Water melon's my favorite fruit! Agreed Jacob, the fruits look fresh! No wonder the customers are always seen there.... I love the colors in the picture! Simply superb!

I like to buy directly to the producer on the roadside

You packed a lot of color into this one. Got my taste buds going too. Thanks!

You've certainly captured summer in this photo. Vegetable stand, watermelons, colorful shade umbrellas. Nice capture.

I wish we had more of these in Ft. L. Too much city not enough country any more.

I've never had green boiled and cajun watermelon before! How do they taste?

Small City Scenes said...

Green boiled Cajun Watermelon? Very interesting. Love the colors. Fresh fruit and veggies can't be beat. MB

Jacob said...

@ Small City Scenes - Methinks there is a "Peanuts" sign up there somewhere...

Jacob said...

@ Safe Leif - Like an Eagan squash!

Lois said...

Those are some beautiful colors in that photo Jacob! I assume that sign is referring to peanuts and I would have to buy some if I stopped there!

Halcyon said...

Those melons look delicious! I think they taste better when they've been out in the sun a little bit.

Marie said...

Wonderful colors, Jacob.

Karen said...

Great photo. Great angle and the color is amazing. Watermelon is luscious but I'll take my uncooked, thank you.

Becky said...

I love local food stands. My dad always got berries and melons (along with tomatoes and onions and corn) from the local vendors on his way home from work when I was a kid.

The colours in this shot are very vibrant! Love it.

James said...

That looks like a wonderful place. Just last night I had the best tomato I'd ever tasted.

The color pops off the page in this picture.

Delicious fruit stand! Very colorful! Is it usually possible to sample the fruit?

Frank said...

I love the sky, and colors, but what I really WANT is to buy the sign. Someday I'll have an old barn with huge empty walls and I'll cover it in roadside fruit/veggie signs. All handpainted. (Is there actually a modern factory someplace churning these out to delight us?)

Tricia said...

LoL! That comment you left on my page cracked me up! Thank you - I needed that!

JM said...

Fantastic colours! So cheerful!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

The bright and cheerful display certainly got my attention! And your word-of0mouth endorsement almost (ALMOST) has convinced me to drive all the way to Florida to shop there too. ;-)

And that wonderful watermelons ...
:-)
Beautiful photos!

Prospero said...

I'd stop there. Looks at that watermelon.

Jacob said...

@ EG - I think you probably have better fruit and veggie stands where you live...you could fly to Florida, though! ;-)

Jacob said...

@ Buenos Aires - Often at a stand like this they will have pieces of the various fruits cut for people to taste...

Jacob said...

@ Lois - You are right! The sign does refer to peanuts...

@ Frank - No factory. No machine could do these signs properly!

@ Karen - You are funny!

Marie-Noyale said...

That is a real Summer picture!

LK Photo said...

Great capture - the colors are wonderful! I visited Ocala recently and many of your photo spots look familiar to me!

I love the colours here - and the sun! (which we're really missing right now!)

WOW! great colors and composition here, Jacob! NICE!

Dan J. said...

WOW !!!
This picture just pops off the screen. Amazing colors.
I love the composition as well. It s these scenes you share that really show the Florida beauty.

I have not been there is no many years. I need to get back someday soon.
