Fruit Stands

Tomatoes for sale at Eastern MarketThere’s nothing like a Sunday afternoon in the summertime. The sun is shining, the weather is warm, and people are out and about. On Sunday, August 5, 2012, I was out at Eastern Market.

For those not familiar, Eastern Market is a public marketplace in Southeast Washington DC just off Pennsylvania Avenue SE. There, one can find many things for sale by local merchants. On a typical Sunday, there are three sections where one can find vendors. The Capitol Hill Flea Market is located across the street from the main facility, selling mostly arts and crafts, but also furniture, among other things. Just outside the main Eastern Market building is outdoor space for vendors. There are a number of fruit and vegetable vendors here, as well as more arts and crafts vendors. Inside the building are more fruit and vegetable vendors, as well as many other different sorts of food vendors. Some even offered samples of their product for potential buyers to try.

On this particular day, I was out accomplishing something that I had been wanting to do for a while: a photo set comprised of close-ups of fruits and vegetables. I saw no better place than Eastern Market to go out and have fun with the many different kinds of fruits and vegetables being sold there. One thing that struck me was the great diversity in the shapes and colors of the different fruits and vegetables sold there. Such a difference between the rainbow of colors found at Eastern Market and the uniformity that you see at a typical grocery store.
